Publisher's Summary

This thoughtful, wry story is about two girls - a 'punk' and a 'priss' - who find themselves facing each other in a peer-counseling program and discover that they have some surprising things in common.

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.

Well written YA friendship novel

am rating this base do it being a YA (teen) read, and it is something I would recommend.

There enough ratings here so I will just summarize:

- easy read, and I enjoyed listening
- I wanted to hear what would happen next
- I could predict the plot
- Not all the characters were believable. I had a problem with the contradictions in Jasmine .
- The deception of depression and impact on family makes this a noteworthy read.
- I dont think it had a lot of "normal" teen issues which a YA would relate to.
- Tech and slang seemed out of time period (set in the 1990s?)
- I would recommend this book strongly to any YA or teen reader.
- book is a story of to people becoming friends and helping each other
- It has happy ending

There a plot miss, where I had hoped for Jasmine to face up her the difference of her issues against the really difficult home life of the protagonist. I was expecting this for a few chapters but it did not happen, and Jasmine seemed rather non-nonchalant about the situation not offering any strong supported. To me this was a missed opportunity for more drama and friendship bond.
