"Normal is the kind of book that opens your heart, examines its parts and then stomps all over it only to put it back together again, better than before. It's feels overload!"―Young Adult Book Madness
"Normal is a riveting and magnetic story of abuse, love, and hope. It pushes the reader in every way possible. Normal is one of the most thought provoking stories I've ever read."―Biblio Belles
"Normal was a hard-hitting, dark, contemporary novel that touches upon some heavy and emotional themes. While it isn't an easy read, it's one that captures your interest and moves you."―Lost to Books

How well do you really know a person? Carl and Tuck seem to think they know each other too well. Could that be their downfall? When this book starts out Carl and Tuck are not the same Carl and Tuck I fell in love with in Normal and Okay. Something has torn them apart, something I never saw coming! But something happens that brings them together and reminds them that they do know the real people they have always been. I want to gush about my favorite part but don't want to give anything away so I'll do it vaguely..... even when someone thinks what they do about another someone, it didn't stop them from taking care of the other. Even though they "hate" each other there are true actions that prove otherwise. And that's what I love most!
There is heartache, tears, laughs, and times where I literally felt my heart reacting to this story. It has it all, even an ending I wasn't expecting. No matter what one thinks, love never fails, dies, or strays very far.... even when you think it does. Pick up this book ASAP and read. It'll be one of your favorites of 2016, that's for sure!
What should be an exciting time for any college freshman is anything but. Both Tucker and Carleigh need a fresh start; to leave behind the pain that first love brought them. This is almost impossible as they are thrown together at every turn. Carleigh “Carl” has a big secret. A secret that destroyed her relationship with Tuck. While Carl wants to forget her mistakes, Tuck just wants to forget her completely.
The story is told in dual POV’s with both past and present story lines. The chemistry and interaction between the characters in the past was sweet and playful. It’s easy to capture that sense of young love and the fears and excitement it brings. I loved the way they almost dared each other to take the next step. Carleigh is smart, sassy and bold. It’s a perfect balance to Tucker’s cocky flirtation. We get to see the transition from friends to lovers throughout the book which often times left me sad only because the couple was so broken in the present. This seamless flow leads up to the big blow up that was Carl and Tuck’s relationship, and what a ka-boom it was. The anger and betrayal that Tuck felt was palpable; however, it was Carl’s belief that she deserved Tuck’s anger that left me with an ache in my chest.
“I cry harder than I have since he ended us. Because I didn’t know then that he could do something worse than end us. That he could erase us.”
I can generally see a plot line coming a mile away. That was not the case with this here. There were multiple events that happened in the book that truly caught me by surprise. I kept guessing as to what could have separated the couple in such an epic way, and even as I read the scene that answers the question I said out loud “oh no.” With all the hurt and bitter feelings aside, this is truly a case of the heart wants what it wants. So can they forgive and move on with each other?
I honestly loved every aspect of this book. I don’t want to give too much away; but, this book truly had it all, lies, angst, sex, love and even some suspense thrown in as well. Five stars for this book. I cannot wait to see what Danielle has instore for her readers in the future.
Carl didn't seem so troubled in normal. Its like a whole new character. I loved that, having no clue where this was going to go. I wanted to 4 star because tucker should have been absolutely body slammed and cap totally should have done it.
Normally in these stories I feel like the guy gets the bad rap and the girl doesn't use her words which causes the angst drama. Not this story. Carl really shows it and spells it out and it still takes him months to sort himself out.
I can't wait for bits' story.
