Normalish Giveaway and Mini Review

Fifteen-year-old Stacy questions the strange world of high school, love, her role in a harsh universe, and life, in Normalish.

People tell you high school's so great and wonderful, but they're lying. It's mostly horrible and full of disappointment. It sucks. Your best friend abandons you. The jerk you're in love with pretends to be into you, and then the big dump. The boy you've really clicked with as a friend decides to go all crushy over you, so you break his heart just like yours was -- smashed into little pieces. Your sister goes mental, and you get involved with a guy who’s even crazier than she is (who you know is a very bad idea, but you do it anyway). Math only adds another stink of failure to the whole thing.

High school blows. Just ask freshman Stacy. She’d want you to know

Mini Review

I thought this book was very cute. It was gut-wrenching at times and plenty angsty. The story is so symbolic of the real life struggles of a fifteen year old. I loved the writing as well! It was in the first person but kind of reminded me of a diary. It is a great contemporary read and perfect for anyone around the age of Stacy.
