Book Review: Normal





Normal (Something More #1) by Danielle Pearl: It's the kind of situation most people would dread. Starting at a new high school, in the middle of my senior year, in a new town, in a new state. I know no one. No one knows me. That's what I'm counting on.

A year ago, Aurora "Rory" Pine was just a normal teenage girl - just as sweet and naive as the fairy tale princess she was named after.

But this isn't a year ago.

Rory is broken, and now suffering from a debilitating anxiety disorder, wrought with precarious triggers, she moves across the country to escape the source of her troubles. Her plan is anonymity, but that's easier said than achieved for the new girl having a panic episode outside of calculus. The worst part? There's a witness - and a gorgeous one at that.

Sam is a walking trigger for Rory. Incredibly handsome, built like the star athlete he obviously is, and undoubtedly popular, Sam outwardly represents everything Rory despises about high school. But as the fates keep throwing them together, a connection sparks that neither ever expected, and certainly couldn't ignore.

But Sam has issues too, and Rory's past won't just stay in the damned past. When friendship evolves into something deeper, can a girl utterly destroyed by the worst kind of betrayal and a boy battling demons of his own ever have a normal relationship? Is that even what they want? Find out in NORMAL, a gritty story of trust and abuse, heartbreak and salvation, and if they're lucky - love. This is not a flowery romance - not for the faint of heart.

Jennifer's thoughts: I enjoyed this book. The story was centered around the main character, Rory. She went through a terrible experience while in high school. Unimaginable...

This book may not be for everyone due to the subject matter, but I felt like the author told the story the way it needed to be told.

Rory is a good girl who got mixed up with the wrong guy and to make matters worse she didn't have the support she needed from the people or the person who should have been there for her.

The author used both past and present day to tell Rory's story. It was well written and easy to follow.

Normal was full of ups and downs---but worth the read.
