Nina does not have a drinking problem. She likes a drink, sure. But what 17-year-old doesn't?

Nina's mum isn't so sure. But she's busy with her new husband and five-year-old Katie. And Nina's almost an adult after all.  

And if Nina sometimes wakes up with little memory of what happened the night before, then her friends are all too happy to fill in the blanks. Nina's drunken exploits are the stuff of college legend.

But then one dark Sunday morning, even her friends can't help piece together Saturday night. All Nina feels is a deep sense of shame, that something very bad has happened to her…

A dark, funny, sometimes shocking coming-of-age novel from one of the UK's leading comedians. Nina is Not OK will appeal to fans of Caitlin Moran and Lena Dunham.


Praise for Nina is Not OK:

"I finished Nina is Not OK in one sitting. Funny, sharp, and heartbreakingly honest– Louise O’Neill

"Entertaining, warm and witty– Jo Brand
