    Evie wants nothing more than to be considered 'normal'. But what does that actually mean?

    She's nearly off her meds and just started at a new college where no one knows her as the 'girl who went nuts'. She's determined to enjoy a fresh start, but soon her secrets start to spill...

    Amber is hoping to reconnect with her mother over a long summer break and finds herself falling for the prom king; and Lottie is determined to call out every instance of sexism she sees - but this comes at a price.

    Three fresh and contemporary young adult novels by Holly Bourne with important and timely messages about mental health, relationships and cyber bullying.

    For fans of authors like John Green, Jenny McLachlan and Sophia Bennett.
