“The characters are very witty in a way that makes them relatable to teenage readers.” MP! visitor Nina reviews ‘Trouble’


trouble 300A book about teenage hankypanky, pregnancy and stepping up. Sounds like a perfect title for YOU REVIEW. MP!er Nina shares her thoughts on ‘Trouble’, the “sharp, funny, touching” novel by Non Pratt.

Describe ‘Trouble’ in a tweet – less than 140 characters please!
An emotive yet humorous novel that realistically portrays the experience of teenage sex/pregnancy in a way unlike any book I’ve read before.

The publisher calls ‘Trouble’ smart, funny and touching . Do you agree?
Yes, definitely! The characters are very witty in a way that makes them relatable to teenage readers but also evoke a lot of emotion and empathy.

What was the best bit?
My favourite part was the plot twist where [MP! NOTE: Removed so we don’t ruin it].

Anything you didn’t like?
I don’t usually like books that have a split narrative, but I didn’t really mind in ‘Trouble’ as both characters had really interesting perspectives. However, I do think that the book ended quite suddenly and found myself longing to know what happened next. (Maybe a sequel will be coming in the future…?)

The book is about teen sex and pregnancy, did you find it realistic?
Yes, the novel really seemed to delve deep into the teenage mind and explored how Hannah’s pregnancy affected the lives of people around her, as well as just herself personally.

Would you recommend to a friend?
Yes, certainly!
