Oh I really love this book. Have you read Only Ever Yours by her?

No, I've read Idol though. I'm going to have to read the rest of hers now.

I was awake til 3am reading Asking for it. What a traumatic book.

Yeah it is traumatic. Definitely makes you think.
I think it's clever that the protagonist is so unlikeable at the start. And then it feels like a dystopia but sadly it's the reality for many, such as the Brock Turner case.
