Waiting for Normal

Waiting for Normal Waiting for Normal by Leslie Connor

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
Addison is an optimistic girl in an extremely difficult situation. The story begins as Addison and her mother are being moved into a trailer under the railroad tracks. Her mother has divorced her step father, whom "Addie" has learned to love. Her two little sisters--born to her mother and step father also love Addie, but now Addie must separate from them. The story is a typical one in many ways--about child neglect. Mommers, as she calls her mother, always disappoints. Addie seems able to rise above her situation, however, as she waits for normal.

  1. sounds too hard for me. I'm reeling from the sadness in Roots right now, and have made a vow that my next 3 books at least have to be happy ones.

  2. Did they call the trailer "the hole"? Sounds like she had a rough childhood.
