Telling my brother about my period
My Brothers Shadow by Monika SchröderAs World War I draws to a close in 1918, German citizens are starving and suffering under a repressive regime. Sixteen-year-old Moritz is torn. His father died in the war and his older brother still risks his life in the trenches, but his mother does not support the patriotic cause and attends subversive socialist meetings. While his mother participates in the revolution to sweep away the monarchy, Moritz falls in love with a Jewish girl who also is a socialist. When Moritzs brother returns home a bitter, maimed war veteran, ready to blame Germanys defeat on everything but the old order, Moritz must choose between his allegiance to his dangerously radicalized brother and those who usher in the new democracy.

I was the last girl in my class to start and I felt they were all in this club together and I was aching to be a part of it. It finally happened after a PE class. I was wearing a games skirt and we went to get changed back into normal clothes when this girl started pointing at my leg. It was and sex education consisted of a short talk where we were given a packet of tampons which we soaked in water.
