The story of a group of British teens who are trying to grow up and find love and happiness despite questionable parenting and teachers who more want to be friends (and lovers) rather than authority figures.
Set in 1996 in Lincolnshire, the show tells the tragic and humorous story of a very troubled young girl, Rae, who spent four months in a psychiatric hospital for attempted suicide. After finally leaving the hospital, Rae reconnects with her best friend Chloe and her group, all who are unaware of Rae's mental health and body image problems and her four month stay in the hospital.
Loved this show, I didn't hear about it till the season was over, which means I had to force myself not to watch all the episodes in one day! It's insightful and portrays mental illness with respect and as a real issue, not a joke like so many other shows can. The characters were thought out and felt like actual people with a life and history's. I am no longer a teen, have not been for years; but I still related to the main character. I loved how realistic it was, her thoughts and reactions to things. It was not at all far-fetched, where the viewer has to remind themselves its a TV show, I actually felt like all the events were common and normal. I was laughing and crying and I can't wait till the second season is out!
