What is Normal?

For Trevor normal was fast guitar licks, catching game-winning passes and partying all night. Until a car accident leaves Trevor with no band, no teammates and no chance of graduating. It's kinda hard to ace your finals when you've been in a coma. The last thing he needs is stuck-up Everly Jenkins as his new tutor—those beautiful blue eyes catching every last flaw.

For Everly normal was a perfect family around the dinner table, playing piano at Sunday service and sunning by the pool. Until she discovers her whole life is a lie. Now the perfect pastor's daughter is hiding a life-changing secret, one that is slowly tearing her family apart. And spending the summer with notorious flirt Trevor Lewis means her darkest secret could be exposed 

Wow. What a roller coaster ride.

There is a lot of feelings that went through me, while I was reading SOME KIND OF NORMAL anger, sadness, confusion, curiosity and of course, hope. This book will have your emotions go back and forth from first page to the last, like a roller coaster. I never read a book by JULIANNA STONE and now I wished I had. Once I finished SOME KIND OF NORMAL I was craving for her other books already. One book is all that it took me to get hooked. I loved the story, the characters and the mystery behind what Everly was hiding and the unexpected twists, the ones that even I didn’t even see coming. Both the cover and the title was what hooked me first when I came across the novel at the library. I am glad that I got curious enough to pick it up. It was breathtaking.

I loved both of characters, though I wasn’t sure about Trevor at first. He seemed angry most of the time, not like I could blame him. However I don’t think that it was fair that he tried to take out of others because he was angry and hurt what happened to him. The way he took out on Everly towards end of the book, especially when she needed him. I didn’t blame her for being hesitant afterwards. It was not hard to see that the two of them cared for one another, even if Everly tried to deny it. Even her friend Haley saw right through her. Everly brought the best in Trevor, at least that was the feeling that I got when he was around her. Trevor helped her escape from her troubled home life, at least for little while. Their realthionship had their ups and down and it also felt real. The entire story is what I can actually see happening in real life.

SOME KIND OF NORMAL isn’t just a love story. It’s a story about family, secrets, friendship, second chances and hope. Beautifully written from start to finish.
