TheSite.org Takeover!


My two lives are COLLIDING this week, and thesite.org is taking over #100DaysOfNormal. When I’m not writing books, I work as a journalist and relationship expert for this brilliant charity website. It’s such a great resource for young people, and can help you with practically EVERY problem you could imagine growing up. Working there has influenced my writing so much, and I’m so excited we’re combining forces this week.

Follow @TheSite for prizes, advice articles, and exclusive videos. Today, find out how to submit your questions to Holly and how to win 1 of 3 signed limited editions of Am I Normal Yet?! See you over there!
