Normal by Danielle Pearl review

girl laying in the grass, looking down, she is very sad and depressed


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.

simply loved this book.I got a message of Danielle and oh, man, so glad I said yes to reviewing it!… I cried, I laughed, I bit my fingernails in anticipation It was AMAZING!!! I loved this book soo much I couldn’t put it down, even though it wasn’t exactly short! It was so fast paced I constantly just needed to know what happened next. We also get to know the people in her life, both in the past and present, and all of the characters are incredibly well developed. It’s impossible not to feel for Sam as well, and their connection is so well written throughout the story that you can really feel their emotions. BUT the cliffhanger at the end!!! I was horrified at first forgetting it was apart of a series and i sat there ranting for a good ten minutes until i re-read the last sentence again and seen that it did in fact say “Not the end ” and not “The end” lets just say i felt a bit stupid 🙂 Overall, Five stars. Highly recommend! And i can’t wait for the second book!!!!! *squealing*
