finally things can t get any worse, she is admitted to rehab This is a powerful story on alcohol culture, how alcoholism runs in families and how people need to stop legitimising the kind of situations that happen when people are wrecked I am the first to admit I ve been in some god awful situations because of alcohol It s terrifying how thin the line is between having a good time and putting your life in danger It s not all hardcore serious themes though There are moments when I laughed out loud Moments I nearly cried for Nina Moments when I wanted to set people on fire namely Zoe and Alex Overall though this book affected methan I expected it to It shines a light on victim blaming in society and just hits the nail right on the head 4 stars I loved Nina is Not OK As a mother,

drunk Part of the story is about her alcoholism, but part of it is about navigating love and sex as a young woman When I started the book, I assumed Khorsandi was talking about a twenty something year old woman, not a teenager, and I thought Nina was incredibly immature But once Nina announced that she was 17, I was so impressed by Khorsandi s ability to accurately portray the thoughts and concerns of a 17 year old.Although Nina is Not OK is about a teenager, it is not YA So don t let the age of the protagonist scare you away Nine is Not Ok is a brilliant work of adult fiction that gave meempathy for alcoholics and those coming of age in a Facebook world Shappi Khorsandi is one of my favourite stand up comics Her sense of humour is both incisive and just witty AF So when I stumbled across this book in my library s catalogue I knew I had to read it I didn t know how her stand up sensibilities would translate to fiction and was slightly trepidatious but I absolutely need not have been This book was phenomenal Nina Is Not Okay tells the story of seventeen year old Nina Nina appears to be a typical teen she s getting over a broken heart but i Shappi Khorsandi is one of my favourite stand up comics Her sense of humour is both incisive and just witty AF So when I stumbled across this book in my library s catalogue I knew I had to read it I didn t know how her stand up sensibilities would translate to fiction and was slightly trepidatious but I absolutely need not have been This book was phenomenal Nina Is Not Okay tells the story of seventeen year old Nina Nina appears to be a typical teen she s getting over a broken heart but is still primarily a fun loving girl who likes to go out with her friends and have a drink But Nina can t just have one or two drinks Nights out always end messily in a haze of blanked out memories and vomit To get by with school and with her broken heart she sneaks vodka at breakfast time, in the toilets But it s no big deal Everyone drinks right Loads of people have drunken sex that they can t remember That s okay too, right This story is so utterly unflinching in its honest portrayal of a beautifully flawed human young girl that if you don t get moved to tears reading it then I think you ve got to have a heart of stone The issues dealt with in this book, from alcoholism to feminism to sexual orientation to understanding what sexual consent actually truly means, are so brilliantly handled that I think this should me a must read for everyone It could sound like this book took all these hot topic buzz worthy social issues and threw them at the book and hoped one would stick but nothing here felt forced It didn t feel like any aspect of the storyline was written just to be a socially conscious book AND I LOVE THAT SO MUCH The storyline regarding the giving of sexual consent was simply spectacular It was horrible to read about just so honest and gut wrenching but my gosh it was brilliantly written Not since I ve read Asking For It have I read something that felt so true to life and a YA directed book that made me want to punch the air in victory Once I dried up all the tears I had shed This packs such an emotional punch And because Shappi is such an awesome stand up comic then you kinda hope this book is going to have some great laugh out loud moments Well I can assure you there are plenty Nina and her best friend Beth are just brilliant Their banter is hilarious and provided many of the book s lighter moments I loved all of the characters in this book actually Nina s family felt really true to life and multi layered and all of her friends, from her ex to her favourite teacher, each added something extra to the story No one felt like they were just filler.This is definitely a book that I would highly recommend to anyone who likes their contemporary upper YA fiction to be in your face with its honesty and its humour, and to really say something important four and a half

tried to make time whenever possible to read this.Nina is 17 Nina is an alcoholic Nina wants to feel wanted Performing an inappropriate sexual act with a random guy in a nightclub isn t the way to go about it, but when Nina starts drinking she turns into the worst version of herself Nina is so out of it that the time between being thrown out of the nightclub and getting home by taxi with her knickers in her hand is a total blur But that night is going to be pivotal for Nina, as she follows a self destructive path, going through denial and self blame, before accepting that she is not ok Told from Nina s first person perspective, this was raw, seriously hard hitting but incredibly insightful and very authentic The author did an amazing job of not only tackling subjects such as alcoholism, the harmful use of social media and today s culture of victim blaming but she also explores bereavement, friendships, first loves and stepfamilies and doesn t shy away from the topic of young people exploring their sexuality Considering the topics covered, this was surprisingly full of humour Some of the dialogue between Nina and her friends Beth and Trish was absolutely hilarious Probably not a great surprise to many, as Shappi Khorsandi is a well known comedienne in the UK She has created a gripping and emotional story while keeping it totally real The character development was fantastic This book dealt so realistically with so many issues facing young people today, it should be required reading in secondary schools and colleges and on the shelves of any parents with teenagers Some of this may be uncomfortable reading due to the subject matter and the author certainly doesn t mince her words, but to me, it made this evenpowerful and realistic Absolutely perfect One of my favourite books this year Would give itthan 5 stars if I could.Many thanks to Random House UK, Ebury Publishing for my ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review This incredibly brilliant debut novel by Shappi Khorsandi has left me slightly breathless A disturbing and brutally frank account of a young 17 year old girl battling alcoholism, A levels, boyfriends and growing up at the same time Told with frank and graphic honestly and with the authors wonderful self deprecating humour, this story deals with living with an addict, the fall out and the shame Totally gripping and heartbreaking and also thought provoking 5 stars. Thank you to Netgalley and Ebury Publishing for my ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review I have to admit to having misgivings when I saw that Shappi Khorsandi had written this novel I mean she

half sister, whom she adores On top of all this hurt and rejection, her boyfriend of two years, Jamie, goes to work for a year in Hong Kong, for his father, and despite all the promises that he ll be back for her, he actually meets someone new on the plane journey out Who wouldn t feel rejected It s after this that her life spirals out of control She uses drink to disguise all this anguish.There were times when I wanted to scream No Nina, don t do it I really cared what happened to her, became so involved This is an excruciating but riveting, snapshot of life in the modern age, where technology can be used in the most destructive way It s funny too, but there are some deep and meaningful messages here that will tear your emotions to shreds, and yes I ll admit it, it did make me cry I was gripped Well done Shappi We first meet a paralytic and drunk Nina when she is humiliatingly thrown out of a nightclub after performing a lewd sex act She passes out with no memory of what
