Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up—Seventeen-year-old Norah Dean hasn't left her house in four years, and the only people she allows around her are her mother and her therapist. She has been diagnosed with agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and anxiety, and because she attends school online, she experiences life mainly via social media. Norah's tightly structured world begins to change when her new, very cute neighbor Luke spies her using a stick to pull groceries in from the porch. Romance quickly blossoms but not without setbacks. A love story set against the backdrop of debilitating mental illness, this debut novel is a poignant work, infused with humor, self-doubt, and, eventually, self-acceptance. Drawing from personal experience, the author intelligently and sensitively presents Norah's myriad emotions and her constant battle against her own mind, depicting panic attacks, stream-of-consciousness inner monologues, and more. Mature language and situations combine with the frank, realistic detail as Norah explores her first relationship and her own mental health. VERDICT Great for teens who appreciated Sophie Kinsella's Finding Audrey and Nicola Yoon's Everything, Everything.—Erin Holt, Williamson County Public Library, Franklin, TN

Review

“Provides an intimate glimpse into the mind of a young woman battling some very real demons.”
Publishers Weekly
 
“A love story set against the backdrop of debilitating mental illness, this debut novel is a poignant work, infused with humor, self-doubt, and, eventually, self-acceptance.”
—SLJ
 
“Thoughtful, heartbreaking, and at times laugh-out-loud funny, Louise Gornall tells a fearless story from the perspective of someone who doesn’t yet recognize her own bravery. . . . unflinchingly honest.”
—Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of Firsts
