‘IT’s Sophia Lillis to Lead Cast of Netflix’s ‘I Am Not Okay With This’

The adaptation of Charles Forsman’s self-published comic series I Am Not Okay With This now has a main cast, and honestly, we are more than okay with the actors chosen.

For those of you not familiar with the comic, I Am Not Okay With This tells the story of fifteen-year-old Sydney, a freshman in high school dealing with your typical teenage stresses of high school, family, her awakening sexuality, and a unique power that’s not so typical for life as a teen. The black and white comic takes a morbidly humorous look at the struggles of teenagers
