HOW CLEAN BE­CAME OUR WIN­NER

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Know -

The Big Book awards show­case the finest new and emerg­ing fic­tion and non-fic­tion across the UK – with all the books on the longlist be­ing in­de­pen­dently judged by Cos­mopoli­tan’s read­ers, the ed­i­tors and our guest judge, au­thor Gio­vanna Fletcher (left). Clean tells the story of Lexi, an in­dul­gent rich kid who be­comes a heroin addict and con­se­quently finds her­self in re­hab. Clean scored the high­est mark across the board (al­though it was very tight – to find out which other reads al­most made it, check out Big Book’s In­sta­gram @hearst­big­book). “It seemed so real in places, you felt every­thing the pro­tag­o­nist was go­ing through,” says Fletcher.
