REVIEW: Clean, Juno Dawson

Thursday, 16 August 2018

When socialite Lexi Volkov almost overdoses, she thinks she's hit rock bottom. She's wrong. Rock bottom is when she's forced into an exclusive rehab facility. From there, the only way is up for Lexi and her fellow inmates, including the mysterious Brady. As she faces her demons, Lexi realises love is the most powerful drug of all... It's a dirty business getting clean...

A truly visceral and honest depiction of the true lows of many types of addiction and the difficult steps that need to be taken to successfully come back from the brink. A growing number of the world’s teenagers suffer from drug dependancy which means, now more than ever, we, as a society (no matter if we are young adult or otherwise), need to be informed about the real life consequences. Clean is so much more than the limitations that many people place on the Young Adult age-category and in it, Juno Dawson tackles the subject in a frank and realistic way, and cements herself as a writing tour de force for at least the next decade. Gossip Girl meets the London It-Girl Scene meets the book I wish I had the confidence (and the skill!) to write.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
