Heart-Breakingly Honest

Sabrina Reiter, Thalia-Buchhandlung Wien, Donauzentrum

Holly Bourne's "Am I Normal Yet?" is one of the best contemporary novels for young adults I have ever read. Evie has just started a new school where hardly anyone knows her and her past. Perfect. Here she can be a normal girl with normal problems, like guy trouble for example, because that is something every teenage girl has to deal with, isn't it? Unfortunately, guys aren't Evie's biggest concern, because it's coming back. With new friends she doesn't want to confide in in fear of driving them away, Evie is on the verge of falling back into old patterns... "Am I Normal Yet?" tackles the very real and very difficult issue of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). Never have I read a novel regarding mental health issues that was this honest before. It is heart-breaking to witness the protagonist's world falling apart around her and really opens your eyes to the way mental health issues are perceived and dealt with in today's society, which is really sobering and thought-provoking. Whilst OCD is a rather serious topic, the book also offers light-hearted parts that had me laughing out loud on numerous occasions, so it keeps from getting too dark. As if the plotline wasn't interesting enough, Holly Bourne's writing style is amazingly witty and clever which makes the book all the more enjoyable to read. I highly recommend "Am I Normal Yet" to teenagers and adults who would like to read a realistic, non-sugarcoated story about OCD. Personally, I can't wait to pick up the sequel to see how Evie's journey continues.

Ein sehr schönes Jugendbuch. Der erste Teil des Spinster Clubs erzählt die Geschichte über die Entstehung des Clubs und Evies psychische Erkrankungen.
