And the winner is… WIN! A signed copy of one of the most important books you’ll read all year!

Louise O’Neill is going on a mini tour for the paperback of her second book, ‘Asking for It’!


In a small town where everyone knows everyone, Emma O’Donovan is different. She is the special one – beautiful, popular, powerful. And she works hard to keep it that way. Until that night . . . Now, she’s an embarrassment. Now, she’s just a slut. Now, she is nothing. And those pictures – those pictures that everyone has seen – mean she can never forget.
