"Waiting on" Wednesday [6]

Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens

Publication Date: February 25, 2014
Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books

An edgy, realistic, and utterly captivating novel from an exciting new voice in teen fiction.
Alexi Littrell hasn't told anyone what happened to her over the summer. Ashamed and embarrassed, she hides in her closet and compulsively scratches the back of her neck, trying to make the outside hurt more than the inside does.

When Bodee Lennox, the quiet and awkward boy next door, comes to live with the Littrells, Alexi discovers an unlikely friend in "the Kool-Aid Kid," who has secrets of his own. As they lean on each other for support, Alexi gives him the strength to deal with his past, and Bodee helps her find the courage to finally face the truth.

A searing, poignant book, Faking Normal is the extraordinary debut novel from an exciting new author-Courtney C. Stevens.
Another debut novel this week! While the cover may seem a little too much like a conventional YA contemporary book, the description suggests anything but. Faking Normal looks to be a moving read about two teens who have had to deal with some struggles in their past and their unlikely friendship. Only a little under three weeks until we can get our hands on this book!

Check it out on Goodreads!
