‘Am I Normal Yet?’ is a refreshingly honest take on teenage life, showing it as it really can be: messy and confusing and littered with difficult topics, such mental illness, dating and what it means to be a girl.
TheSite were lucky enough to snag some time to talk to author Holly Bourne about all things ‘Am I Normal Yet?’, including how it is to write about disability and her favourite places to work on her books.
She says, “I think ‘Am I Normal Yet?’ is definitely my most autobiographical book… I know that I poached a lot of things from my early dating experiences…like the boy she dates who has sex with somebody else on her first date – that did happen to me (laughs).”
