The Exact Opposite of Okay

by Laura Steven - £7.99  Egmont UK Ltd (Electric Monkey) (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781405288446 | ISBN 10: 1405288442

A hilarious, groundbreaking young adult novel for anyone who's ever called themselves a feminist... and anyone who hasn't.
For fans of Louise O'Neill, Holly Bourne and Amy Schumer.
 
Izzy O'Neill here! Impoverished orphan, aspiring comedian and Slut Extraordinaire, if the gossip sites are anything to go by...
 
Izzy never expected to be eighteen and internationally reviled. But when explicit photos involving her, a politician's son and a garden bench are published online, the trolls set out to take her apart. Armed with best friend Ajita and a metric ton of nachos, she tries to laugh it off - but as the daily slut-shaming intensifies, she soon learns the way the world treats teenage girls is not okay. It's the Exact Opposite of Okay.
 
Bitingly funny and shockingly relevant, The Exact Opposite of Okay is a bold, brave and necessary read. For readers of The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, Doing It by Hannah Witton and Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo.
