Goodreads Purchase

An edgy, realistic, and utterly captivating novel from an exciting new voice in teen fiction.

Alexi Littrell hasn’t told anyone what happened to her over the summer. Ashamed and embarrassed, she hides in her closet and compulsively scratches the back of her neck, trying to make the outside hurt more than the inside does.

When Bodee Lennox, the quiet and awkward boy next door, comes to live with the Littrells, Alexi discovers an unlikely friend in “the Kool-Aid Kid,” who has secrets of his own. As they lean on each other for support, Alexi gives him the strength to deal with his past, and Bodee helps her find the courage to finally face the truth.

A searing, poignant book, Faking Normal is the extraordinary debut novel from an exciting new author-Courtney C. Stevens.

    I’ve seen lots of reviews from books released this week, especially reviews form you Giselle and I’ve been swayed to consider some of them myself; Faking Normal and White Hot Kiss, and there’s quite some good books out. I’m expected lots of great reviews over the next few weeks for them.

    It looks like a pretty good book week! I read Faking Normal and loved it. I also have an advanced copy of Grimm that I still have to read soon.
    I really want to get Tsarina and Tin Star, they both sound awesome!
