Define 'Normal'

Jill Shalvis

7 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Adult & contemporary romance, General fiction (Children's / Teenage)

A thoughtful, wry story about two girls - a 'punk' and a 'priss' in peer counseling

Antonia is a 'nerd', and Jazz is a 'punk'. Antonia belongs to the maths club. Jazz hangs out at the tattoo parlour. Antonia's parents are divorced and her mother suffers from depression. Jazz is from a wealthy, traditional family. But when these two very different girls find themselves facing each other in a peer-counseling programme, they discover they have some surprising things in common.
Alternately funny and heart-wrenching, this is an absorbing read that will keep readers thinking and laughing.
