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.

The best book ever!!
It took me literally 4 days to read and I loved it! Amazing book in every sense of the word.
This book series is one of my favorites. The characters are so engaging and it’s so hard to put the book down because of always wanting to know what Rory’s past was and what was going to happen next. I found myself crying near the end (don’t want to spoil!) because of how much I loved the characters.
This is part 1 of a 2 part story. The rest of the story is in the second book names « okay ». You can’t really read this without reading the second book. This first one ends on a cliff hanger.
I really enjoyed this book. You’re on edge the whole time trying to understand and piece together Rory’s past. There is suspense, romance, sadness... everything to make it a great story.
I can’t help but wonder how fun it would be if author made another book, twisting off of this, a world where Cam was still alive and what he and Rory’s love story would have been.
