Title: Faking Normal
   Author: Courtney C. Stevens
   Release Date: February 25th, 2014

     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.

My Stance:

     I am looking forward to this novel. While prior to my departure I wouldn't have said this would be my style of book, now this falls mainly into my lap and what I'm looking forward to. I love books that take some realty and end up telling a story that is able to change someone's outlook on life. This is one of those books that melds different aspects (romance, real life hardships, character growth) and molds all those into what sounds like a great story.

     I think most teens an understand the hardship or what Alexi and Bodee have dealt with in their life. I am dying to find out by the way! Furthermore I am curious on why Bodee needs to move in with Alexi's family. I hope the story is told well, and doesn't leave me saying, "Really!?" over and over like some novels as of lately. I can't wait to get my hands on this book!
