Synopsis

All Evie wants is to be normal. And now that she's almost off her meds and at a new college where no one knows her as the-girl-who-went-nuts, there's only one thing left to tick off her list...But relationships can mess with anyone's head - something Evie's new friends Amber and Lottie know only too well. The trouble is, if Evie won't tell them her secrets, how can they stop her making a huge mistake?

I flipped the last page of this book mere minutes ago, and all I can think of is HOW MUCH I can relate to this book. On my sixteenth birthday, as a joke, two of my best friends and I made a little club (and decided to induct my other (boy) best friend as well, though, giving him the number Zero because in a surge of feministic mind-set, that’s what boys are, right? Zeroes?) We didn’t act on it after, except to laugh about the craziness that was going through our heads when we pulled out this “How to Make a Fabulous Club” handbook from fifth grade and decided there was nothing cooler than to form a club then. Living in India, we are SO OFTEN MAD about how UNFAIRLY and UNEQUALLY girls are treated. SO MANY PEOPLE in my COLLEGE today are just there because getting a degree makes them more “worthy” of marriage to a boy. WHAT. Even our own parents, who’ve always ALWAYS told us that we should NEVER be financially dependent and be our own people, still revert to anti-feminist ideas. Like Girls can’t be sent out of town to college. Girls can’t wear shorts. Girls must cook. Basically, in a word, Holly Bourne’s Am I Normal Yet? Is SO FREAKING RELATEABLE. Even MORE than being a book that was surrounded around feminism, this book was one of the BEST MENTAL HEALTH BOOKS I’VE EVER READ. It never once shied away from the topic, attacked clichés and called them out and most of all, HELPED ME UNDERSTAND the mind of someone suffering from OCD a WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN ANYTHING I’VE EVER READ BEFORE. Everything about this book was gorgeous, but let me list it out: 1. The Importance of Mental Health Awareness 2. Boys and ALL THE DRAMA 3. FEMINISM 4. MENTAL HEALTH 5. FRIENDSHIP 6. Getting Help when you need it 7. Accepting Yourself AND Accepting that YOU ARE YOUR NORMAL I loved this book. I’m going to stop ranting – because that’s what this is. A Rant. But TRUST ME WHEN I SAY that YOU NEED TO GET INTO THE WORLD OF EVIE, LOTTIE AND AMBER. Am I Normal Yet? Is filled with HILARIOUS MOMENTS, Boys, How To Be A Better Feminist Meetings and EXTREMELY REALISTICALLY PORTRAYED Mental Health Problems, and you NEED IT. 4.5 Stars.

Evie has just started college and is thinking of it as a new start. She has OCD and Generalised Anxiety Disorder, but her medication’s being reduced, and hardly anyone at college knows about her past. Now is Evie’s time to be normal, which becomes easier when she makes friends with Lottie and Amber. Together the girls laugh and have fun, but also get talking about sexism and feminist issues. They form the Spinster Club and hold meetings, discussing how to fight the patriarchy. Evie is finally feeling like her life is on track, and decides all she needs now is a boyfriend. Evie is determined to be normal, and refuses to tell anyone about her mental illness, but boys come with their own complications, the kind that might not be so helpful to someone in recovery. A fantastic novel looking at the seriousness of mental illness and feminism!
