Am I Normal Yet?

Authur: Holly Bourne

Genre: Young Adult

Reviewed by: Aoife Kerr, Leixlip Library

All Evie wants is to be normal. She’s almost off her meds and at a new college where no one knows her as the girl-who-went-crazy. She’s even going to parties and making friends. There’s only one thing left to tick off her list…. But relationships are messy- especially relationships with teenage guys. They can make any girl feel like they are going mad. And if Evie can’t even tell her new friends Amber and Lottie the truth about herself, how will she cope when she falls in love?

This is such a wonderful book. I also think that this book is very important. It deals with so much, the confusing aspects of being young, having anxiety and the idea of ‘being normal’. Holly Bourne has made this book so relatable. Despite the overall theme of the book, with some humor. It also helps that Bourne is a great writer and she makes you want to read more. It is an excellent book that I believe that everyone should read.
