Define 'Normal' by Julie Anne Peters

If you could sum up Define 'Normal' in three words, what would they be?

I listened to this amazing audiobook from the Hub Challenge and LOVED it. Both girls are fantastic protagonists, although the story is told solely from Antonia's point of view; she is peer counseling Jazz Luther who is the total opposite of Antonia. As I listened to this compelling audiobook I realized why I love Julie Ann Peters books- she gets teens. This book is no different- both Jazz and Antonia have "stuff" going on and teens will love reading or listening to this book; can seeming "opposites" get along, trust each other, and become friends? Highly recommended!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked Antonia because she 'seemed' more normal than Jazz. Antonia is a straight A student and her view of life is getting more and more murky--thank goodness for the peer counseling. I think that became her life line as well as her new friendship with Jazz.

Have you listened to any of Christine Lakin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first and I want to listen to more of her performances:)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Antonia got Jazz to play the piano; I think it was a defining moment for both of them although they do not realize it at the time.

Any additional comments?

I listened to this Amazing Audiobook as part of The 2015 Hub Challenge and loved this oldy but goody book.
