After the main character is pressured into a sexual situation by an older boy and refuses to take it further, he angrily makes the main character feel as if she did something wrong and that he was "just trying to help her"

There is an attempt at getting a character naked, where she refuses. She then feels bad about the instance and suffers a panic attack. No scenes of sexual assault occur however.

Kayla is using her smart phone at a pool party and she cuts her finger on the shattered glass screen. It is a VERY very small cut and you only see one drop of blood.

There aren't any actual s*x scenes in the movie, but some pretty explicit allusions to it:
- During an active shooter drill, Kayla is trying to get the attention of a boy that she likes, so she tells him that she has nudes on her phone. (There aren't actually any and she's clearly lying). The boy asks her if she gives b******s and she says yes. She watches a YouTube tutorial on How To Give A B*****b after the fact. In the video, a woman starts to demonstrate on a d***o and Kayla shuts it off, horrified. She goes to the kitchen and begins to practice on a banana before she's interrupted.
- Kayla is alone in the car with an older boy who verbally sexually harasses her, pressuring her to take her shirt off when she's clearly uncomfortable. She doesn't do it, and he drives her home.
