Heartiest of congratulations to Young Adult author Biffy James, whose debut Completely Normal (and Other Lies) has just been released, via Hardie Grant Children’s Publishing!
Biffy’s (very proud) agent and fellow YA author, Danielle Binks, was thrilled to do the launching honours at Readings Kids – and the response to the book from early reviews has already been fantastic! Fellow Aussie YA author Lauren Draper (The Museum of Broken Things) has said : “Completely Normal is Fleabag season two (this is not a love story), with a dash of Adam Silvera (heartbreak but make it cute) and a dash of Sweet Valley High (the drama! and! the friendships!). You will cry, you will snort-laugh, you will giggle and blush and cry again. I cannot commend this zinger of a book enough.”
And a fave school instagram account – Forest Hill College Library – have raved about the tender portrayals of mental health care in the book; “Stella’s experiences and her mental health struggles (and even her coming to terms that she is having mental health struggles) is something many teens (and those of us slightly older than our teenage years) can identify and connect with.”
RUN, don’t walk, to snap up a copy of this sophisticated and scintillating LoveOzYA tale! Congratulations, Biffy!
