GirlLikeMe

Synopsis
Lucy is young, Lucy is damaged, Lucy is pretty, Lucy like to play.

Age only 13 Lucy attempts to get away from her dysfunctional family and her dull teenage life by meeting up with a boy, "Tony age 16", after flexting for a blind date with her shy friend Becks.

She meets Tony but he's not 16, Lucy's not concerned, maybe she always knew it. He's concerned, then infatuated. She flirts, she plays games, she's witty, feisty and outrageous, but in control. There's no doubt they get on. Lucy wants to be a woman, older, independent, but how far will she go?
