Am I Normal Yet?

The Spinster Club Series

Book 1
Usborne Publishing Ltd

Evie, Amber and Lottie: three girls facing down tough issues with the combined powers of friendship, feminism and cheesy snacks. Both hilarious and heart-rending, this is Evie’s no-holds-barred story of struggling to live a “normal” teen life in the grip of OCD, from the acclaimed author of The Manifesto on How to be Interesting. Read the first chapter of Holly Bourne’s next book, How Hard Can Love Be? – EXCLUSIVE to the ebook.

"An involving look at feminism, friendship and the secrets we hide even from those who know us best." - The Observer

"An epic and unique release this summer that I plead you all to pick up! This novel has a distinct British feel with moments mixed with laughter, tainted with tears and bound with love. Holly Bourne has created a beautiful tale." - Paper Trail YA

"This is not a novel about a condition: Evie’s condition is that of being a contemporary young woman, and through her guerrilla feminist group with new soulmates Lottie and Amber (who will each get a novel to themselves shortly) she learns new pathways through life that all her peers can follow.” - The Observer

“This is quite easily Bourne's best novel yet. Might have been a tricky subject matter, but it was funny and heartbreaking and thought-provoking.” - An Awful Lot of Reading

“I love the Spinsters Club, and I so want my own! What I love is how Bourne breaks down these ideas so they are so accessible! ... There are a few feminist YA stories out at the moment, but this is the first I've read that actually talks about feminism and discusses how to be a feminist, and I think it really could be a game changer! And I am so happy! I am so, so happy and excited!” - Once Upon a Bookcase

“This book was kind of astounding to me... I got through Am I Normal Yet? in one sitting" - A Novel Youth

"It’s not a book that I can find fault with because it was just written so perfectly and so carefully and sensitively. I just enjoyed it so much.” - Lucy the Reader

Holly Bourne is becoming something of a writing sensation in the world of Young Adult fiction... Using humour, high emotion, compassion, sensitivity and some hard-hitting drama, Bourne creates a beautiful, resonant story that tackles serious issues with the lightest and sometimes darkest of touches, giving real and moving insights into what it means to be young, confused and isolated. - Lancashire Evening Post
