When Phoebe is asked to join the debating team, she’s surprised, but excited. She’ll get to attend after-school debating meetings and competitions – all with her new teammate, and secret crush, Jagath.

Phoebe knew she’d have to stand up in front of a class to debate; she didn’t realise she’d have to stand up for herself, and everything she believes in.
