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 "My favourite YA book of 2015" - Words from a Reader

But with a secret international agency preparing to separate them and a trail of destruction rumbling in their wake, they are left with an impossible choice between the end of the world, or a life without love... "Warning: this book will demolish your heart as it has demolished mine." - CJ Skuse, Author of Rockaholic Shortlisted - UKYA Awards

All Amber wants is a little bit of love. Her mum has never been the caring type, even before she moved to California, got remarried and had a personality transplant.

But can he really be interested in her? Even with best friends Evie and Lottie’s advice, Amber’s finding love is hard. Is it worth the fight? “I'm a big Holly Bourne fan and this is my favourite yet. She writes with such humour and great honesty, with wonderfully relatable characters. It's also refreshing to see feminism highlighted in such a positive and relevant way for teenagers.” - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller ”Bourne talks about feminism so openly and truthfully in her books and if you ever doubted the intelligence, ability or passion of teenage girls read her books and you never will again.” - Muchbooks reader review on Guardian Children's Books ”Written with humour and warmth, Amber's story perfectly captures the emotional rollercoaster that is love: embracing all its joy and pain, whether it be for family, friends or a gorgeous boy. A really satisfying page turner.” - BookTrust ”Emotive and thought provoking this searingly honest book deals with the biggest life lesson of all - nobody's perfect.” - South Wales Daily Post ”Holly Bourne truly is the Queen of YA!” - Humaira Kauser, age 17, for LoveReading4Kids ”Holly Bourne is hugely popular with the young adult audience. The second instalment in her Normal series tells Amber's story of first love, friendship and addiction.” - The Sunday Express ”Holly Bourne’s new novel demonstrates that with the right female friends, and a decent supply of cheesy snacks, a girl can get through anything... Well-written and thoughtful, this has a thoroughly authentic twenty-first century teen voice and lightens serious issues with humour.” - LoveReading4Kids ”When I received this book I let out a squeal... I really love this series.” - Lucy the Reader "Hysterical" - Mslexia "The story is equal parts hilarious and heart-wrenching... I cannot get over how many times I snorted out loud whilst reading this book. You’ll have to read it to see for yourself" - Fable & Table “[Holly Bourne’s] writing style keeps me hooked, makes me feel things and genuinely makes me think hard about important issues. I cannot recommend her novels highly enough and I am on a mission to read them all!” - Adventures of a Teenage Bookworm

When your husband moves out, move your best friends in... Amanda Wilkie unexpectedly finds herself alone with her three children in a rambling Victorian house in London. Her husband leaves them, claiming he's just 'lost the love', like one might carelessly lose a glove. A few months later, Amanda's heavily pregnant friend, Ali, crashes into her kitchen announcing her husband is also leaving. So, after Ali's baby Grace is born, they both move into Amanda's attic. And when Jacqui, a long-lost friend and fellow single mum, starts dropping by daily, the household is complete. Getting divorced is no walk in the park, but the three friends refuse to be defined by it. And, as they slowly emerge out of the wreckage like a trio of sequin-clad Gloria Gaynors singing 'I Will Survive', they realise that anything is possible. Even loving again... Based on Janet's true story, The Single Mums' Mansion is a laugh-out-loud tour de force which will make you laugh, cry and treasure your best friends even more than before. Perfect for fans of Marian Keyes, Gill Sims and Tracy Bloom. Praise for The Single Mums' Mansion: 'There was something inherently charming and satisfying about how imperfect everyone is within the story' C. R. Elliott.
