This in turn leads Aideen to run her own secret business all while juggling her own problems at home. Will Aideen be able to solve her own problems and help others? Read more to find out!

Not My Problem is a book that is full of depth and strong emotion. The characters in this book are very well written with a strong character. The problems that Aideen go through are realistic and eye-opening. Throughout the book, I understood the characters’ emotions and how it is caused from their different situations. I didn’t really like how there was any development of the relationship between Meabh and Aideen. I love the art style of the cover, the bright colors of Aideen in contrast with the background really goes with the story. This book is mainly about creating your own path and friendship. Perfect for those who love to read coming of age stories!
