NOT SAFE!!!
SPOILERS!
At the end of the book the v**** scenes happen pretty close to each other. The first one happens when Becca explains how her sister choked to death on her own v****. I found this quite triggering. The second one is quite graphic and triggering. Pip gets drugged and shoved her fingers down her throat and v**** twice, describing it vividly.
