WAITING FOR NORMAL, by Leslie Connor

What's normal - and how long do you have to wait for it to show up?

What's normal - and how long do you have to wait for it to show up?

Addie’s life is totally crazy.  Her mom is an “all or nothing” parent – either there’s tons to eat, or there’s nothing.  Either there’s all kinds of time together … or Addie’s waiting at home alone.  All night.  For days on end.

 

What she really wants is to live with her ex-stepfather and her half sisters, but Addie feels like she can’t rat out her mom.  So she just keeps waiting … for normal.  What she doesn’t know is that it will take some really scary stuff before the people around her can even figure out what “normal” is.
