Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne
Evie just wants to be ‘normal’. She wants to start her new college, find friends she can trust, go to parties, and have fun. However we meet Evie when she is recovering from a breakdown, and we read about her innermost thoughts and feelings as she tries to cope with her anxiety disorder whilst boys mess with her head and she tries to form her own feminist ideals. But how will she cope with reducing her medication if she can’t even tell her best friends what is happening? This really funny but poignant book is both light and hard-hitting, and is a refreshingly honest portrayal of dealing with mental illness.
