YA Adaption I AM NOT OKAY WITH THIS Sets Sophia Lillis As Lead


YA book series I Am Not Okay With This is set for a Netflix adaption with Sophia Lillis (Sharp Objects) to star.

Lillis will play the central character Sydney, who is described as awkward and smart with a dry, witty, sardonic sense of humor. Though Sydney views herself as painfully average, she is far from it, as she discovers she has telekinetic powers which may prove to be problematic.

Wyat Oleff, Sofia Bryant and Kathleen Rose Perkins will also star. Oleff will play Stanley Barber, Sydney’s neighbor and the polar opposite of a jock, Bryant will Dina, Sydney’s effervescent, happy, pretty, loud and funny, badass best friend, and Rose Perkins will Maggie, Sydney’s mother who works long hours at the local diner and has been raising her two kids on her own since the death of her husband.

I Am Not Ok With This will consist of eight episodes and be directed by Jonathan Entwistle (The End of the F***ing World).
