A razor-sharp, adrenaline rush of a novel from award-winning author Juno Dawson, Clean is Gossip Girl meets Girl, Interrupted

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.

Addiction and redemption, love and despair. Clean will have you hooked from the first page and with a stunning rose gold foil cover, Clean will also look amazing on your bookshelf.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Written with verve, wit and a mischievous love of language...it's one to just enjoy - Stylist

Emotional freight train of a novel - Heat

A pretty addictive read. If you buy it for a teen in your life, make sure you borrow it off them (or read it first) because it's bloody great - The Pool

In the 20 years since Melvin Burgess's Junk, surprisingly few YA novels have dared tackle addiction. Juno Dawson's Clean changes that in spectacular style... As bold and gritty as it is fabulously glossy and readable, it's a provocative, important read - Fiona Noble, The Observer

A blingy gold cover draws the eye to Juno Dawson's Clean, the foul-mouthed, in-yer-face account of Lexi, a super-rich party girl gone off the rails, and her effortful journey towards kicking her heroin habit. Set in a plush rehab facility, Dawson's latest novel mingles pitch-perfect pop-culture references with the layers of lies and self-justification in which the addict's mind wreathes itself; it's compulsively readable, hilarious and filled with uncomfortable truths - Guardian

Gossip Girl goes to rehab... It's pacy, funny and in parts very touching... Lexi is great company. Sweary, cynical and quick with a comeback, she feels real... What feels spot-on are the group dynamics and fledgling friendships... I thoroughly enjoyed the flashbacks to Lexi's lavish life... for a rambunctious read about teen addiction, Clean hits the spot - i newspaper

Sharp, gripping and tender, Clean is the story of how a small group of damaged people, by being there for each other, find a way to help themselves...Juno Dawson shows herself to be a judicious, bold storyteller with an instinctive feel for emotional authenticity - and Clean is her best novel yet. - Attitude magazine

bold and incisive with razor-sharp writing ... it's one of the few YA books brave enough to tackle addiction head-on - The Bookseller

Glamorous without glamorising addiction, and informative without getting preachy, this is a highly readable account of escaping from a self-destructive spiral - The Irish Times

An engrossing read - Stellar Magazine

It's charming and gritty with intelligently written, nuanced characters and dialogue. - The Irish Times

This books keeps you on edge - GLAMOUR

Harsh yet compelling, it's written with great flair - Financial Times

Hard-hitting and unapologetic, this is a story that bravely depicts the lows of addiction and the journey to recovery - The Sun

Cat Marnell's How To Murder Your Life meets Gossip Girl - COSMOPOLITAN
