si ce n'est un peu maladroit

This is a contribution to help others who might find this confusing:

In French, there are certain sentence constructions or even verbs that could be made negative with just the addition of "ne". The addition of "pas" and the likes isn't necessary. This concept is called "Ne littéraire". 

Clauses containing "si" are one of those instances where the Ne littéraire could be used.

Merci Gary!

Juste une petite correction -

Elle est très douce/sympa/mignonne 

But you wouldn't really use 'douce' for a story as it means soft to the touch, or 'sweet' as used in food stuff.
