An Evening with Juno Dawson
Juno Dawson is putting the adult into young adult. Join us here at Kinokuniya as she discusses her latest YA hit Clean with Amelia Lush.
Described as Gossip Girl meets Girl, Interrupted, with a side of Orange is the New Black, Clean is a razor-sharp, adrenaline rush of a story, which explores drug addiction, gender identity and mental health.
‘Compulsively readable and touching – I loved it’
Addiction and redemption, love and despair. Clean will have you hooked from the first page.
