Book Review - Waiting for Normal by Leslie Connor

When will 12 year-old Addie’s life be normal? Living with your mentally unstable mother in a trailer with empty boxes of mac ‘n cheese in the cupboards and boxes upon boxes of unused office supplies, is that normal? Hanging out at the gas station mart with your two best friends, who are old enough to be your parents, is that normal? Lying to your ex-stepfather so he will not find out your mother sometimes doesn’t come home for days on end, is that normal? Follow Addie as she searches for happiness and attempts to overcome her life of instability, all the while trying to keep a bright outlook on life. Will her life ever be normal? Read it and find out!
