    18-year-old Izzy parties, drinks, dances and... sleeps with a boy. But that's her business. Until a slut-shaming website is set up and she becomes the centre of a national scandal because the boy in question is a politician's son. Thankfully, Izzy doesn't have to deal with it alone. ...

    Not for me I hate books with dead parents especially when they go on and on about it. Constant references to tragic orphan status got old quickly. I didn't get the humour at all and found main character to be a bit callous at times. Moving on to something else and DNFing thi...

    5 Words: Friendship, sex, feminism, blame, attraction. There are not enough stars in the world for this wonderful book. Before reading, I was pretty excited for this book. I'd caught my first glimpse at YALC, failed in my endeavours begging for a copy, then managed to get it on N...

    Allesbehalve ok is absoluut een aanrader voor alle (tiener)meisjes vanwege het onderwerp. Seksualiteit, slut-shaming, feminisme - een prachtig actuele thematiek. Ik vind het heel belangrijk dat er over dergelijke onderwerpen geschreven wordt. Maar vond ik het een goed boek? Niet ec...

    Finished in one sitting! I sticky tabbed the shit out of this and also highlighted it A LOT. I really loved this book. It was incredibly intense, powerful, dramatic, funny and downright educational. 10/10 recommend. This book discusses the injustice that women face on a day to day ...

    W O N D E R F U L I really didn't think this would be one of my favorites. It's been such a long time since I labeled a book as a favorite. I am impressed. With the main character. Izzy is such a beautiful soul. I don't agree with all of her choices, but she's only 18!!! A teena...

    5 million stars. I went into it thinking it would be about slut shaming, which it is but its about so much more, its about gender, high school, life, choices, screenplays and edgy jokes. Also I LOVE LOVE LOVE how Izzy mentions that she cant get a job, I have never had a job in my lif...

    In het begin irriteerde ik me een beetje aan de humor; de humor was grappig, maar het was een beetje te vl. Gelukkig werd dat wel minder, en het onderwerp van dit boek is wel heel belangrijk om aandacht aan te besteden. Het is actueel en het zal veel meisjes aanspreken. Hoewel de g...

    You know you?re going to be in for a treat when a book features a dachshund called Dumbledore and after reading and heavily relating to the line ?maybe I?m just being melodramatic. I just really hate getting out of bed? on the third page, I very quickly realised The Exact Oppos...

    Dit kan wel eens het beste YA boek van 2018 voor me zijn. Slutshaming, vrouwelijke seksualiteit en alles dat er mis is met onze huidige maatschappij zit in dit boek. En het is overgoten met een enorme uitgeschoten scheut gortdroge humor. Ik kan een heel verhaal gaan ophangen met...

    Actual rating- 4.5 stars. This may be a bit long. Firstly, thanks to Beth for the recommendation and the other people who told me just buy the book already, in one form or another. :) And now that I took their advice and have read it, I'm listening to a bunch of female positive son...

    I generally really enjoyed this, and it addressed some important issues too, but the one thing is that I wish there was more towards the end, with more of the feminism stuff I really liked the layout, how it was written as blog entries mostly, it was really fun to read, especially w...

    ALL OF THE STARS Thank you so much netgalley for providing me with a free copy for an honest review. "Shame. It?s a peculiar beast, especially when it happens in public. It leaves you powerless. It strips you of everything you thought you knew about yourself, forces you to exam...

    Changing the rating to a 4.5* because this damn book is all I could think about today. ?Unless an old white man can profit from your sexuality, you better hide it, because if it can?t be exploited, it will be punished.? Izzy O'Neill, an unabashedly promiscuous teenager, aspir...

    Having sex with guys you barely know, at a party, in public, is one thing. But demanding other people to respect your choices is something else entirely. While this book is right on terms like dealing with revenge-porn AND slut-shaming only the girl where a boy is equally involved, it ...

    FAVORIET VAN 2018 Vanaf de eerste pagina zat ik in het verhaal. Op pagina 50 wilde ik opnieuw beginnen lezen, omdat het boek volstaat met fantastische quotes en grappige frasen. Om tijd te besparen (het doel was Allesbehalve ok uit te lezen vr Yalfest) ben ik toch maar gewoon ...
