Some Kind of Normal by Juliana Stone

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.

This achingly beautiful story about two damaged teens struggling through pain and loss to redefine who they are--to their family, to themselves, and to each other--is sure to melt your heart.

This is by turns a classic college romance, but with a couple of huge barriers that really add many more dimensions to the story. It is difficult not to put your self in either Trevor or Everly's position and wonder just how much better you would cope with such events. It throws in both the cliché and the unexpected, and engages the reader fully. I noticed a review from a School Library, and would agree that this probably should be on the teenage student syllabus. Not just because it gives warnings about behaviour; advice about things out of your control; but also because of the miscommunications and their impact.

Very good read, thank you Ms. Stone.

Juliana Stone fell in love with her first book boyfriend when she was twelve. She decided that when she grew up she would like to write her own book boyfriends and, luckily, she gets to do this. She writes dark paranormal romance as well as contemporary romance and now is excited to write young adult as well. She lives with her husband, kids, a dog and a cat somewhere in the wilds of Canada.
