Oh no! It's here! - Lara's first period

It's the day of her language exam, and Lara, aged 12, wakes to discover that she's started her period. She's frightened to tell anyone and is concerned about what everyone will think. When she confides in her friends, they whisk her off to the local supermarket, where she learns about sanitary towels (tampons are mentioned though not described). With the help of her friends, Lara finds that her concerns are dissolved and her confidence boosted. Despite the fact that she is growing up, she is determined not to let the changes she is experiencing get in the way of her ambitions and friendships.

Tony and Gabriel learn about what has happened to Lara, and upon realising that the girls are changing, they question what it will mean for their friendships.
