Published: Aug. 11, 2014
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 Caplan is a walking trigger for Rory, but when the fates keep throwing them together, a connection sparks that neither ever expected. But Sam has issues too, and when Rory's past won't just stay in the damned past, can two people battling demons of their own ever have a normal relationship? Is that even what they want? Find out in NORMAL, a gritty story of trust and betrayal, abuse and salvation, and if they're lucky - love. This is not a flowery romance - not for the faint of heart.
