I'm so glad you loved the book! Izzy's surname is indeed a reference to one Louise O'Neill, who has been a huge inspiration to me since we first became online pals back in 2014. I have so much love for both her work and her as a person.

And YES, there will be a sequel! I'm working on it now, actually. It'll be out in 2019, I believe, and if you want the inside scoop on what it'll be about, check the video I just uploaded to YouTube :)(less)

I'm so glad you enjoyed the book. I decided to set the book in the US because revenge porn (the leaking of an explicit image or video without consent) is illegal in the UK. I wanted to focus more on the emotional aftermath rather than a lawsuit!(less)

“Bitches bite back. And men hate that. Society hates that.”
Laura Steven, The Exact Opposite of Okay

“[It may seem like we're always eating, but that's because we're always eating.]”
Laura Steven, The Exact Opposite of Okay

“What do I want to be now? Bold. Fierce. Honest. A fighter. A revolutionary. A bitch. Because the way the world treats teenage girls – as sluts, as objects, as bitches – is not okay. It’s the exact opposite of okay.”
Laura Steven, The Exact Opposite of Okay

Topics Mentioning This Author

“They went to the column, where they stole a few more quiet minutes together, listening to the river wear its way deeper into the earth, the way people wear grooves into each other's hearts.”
Jeff Zentner

“I get why he's lashing out. As a privileged white dude, he's used to being able to buy whatever he wants. He lives in a country where even the presidency can be bought.
But he can't buy my love. And that frustrates the hell out of him.”
Laura Steven, The Exact Opposite of Okay

“Someone posted a condom stuffed with dog turd through our letterbox this morning. Dumbledore got confused, bless him, and thought it was an exciting new chew toy. And that's the story of how we're going to have to get a new couch.”
Laura Steven, The Exact Opposite of Okay

“[It may seem like we're always eating, but that's because we're always eating.]”
Laura Steven, The Exact Opposite of Okay

“To the innocent onlooker it might seem sort of sweet. To me it seems like he's saying "I don't respect your decision not to want to fuck me, and I will manipulate the hell out of your emotions until you change your mind.”
Laura Steven, The Exact Opposite of Okay
