Review – Some Kind of Normal by Juliana Stone

What is Normal?

For Trevor normal was fast guitar licks, catching game-winning passes and partying all night. Until a car accident leaves Trevor with no band, no teammates and no chance of graduating. It's kinda hard to ace your finals when you've been in a coma. The last thing he needs is stuck-up Everly Jenkins as his new tutor—those beautiful blue eyes catching every last flaw.

For Everly normal was a perfect family around the dinner table, playing piano at Sunday service and sunning by the pool. Until she discovers her whole life is a lie. Now the perfect pastor's daughter is hiding a life-changing secret, one that is slowly tearing her family apart. And spending the summer with notorious flirt Trevor Lewis means her darkest secret could be exposed.

After reading a couple of books that left me feeling eh, it was really nice to pick this up and actually enjoy it. Was it over the top gushy? Nope. Was it too religious? Nope. This was seriously a perfect balance of everything for the young, high school reading lover who just wants to enjoy a good book.

Trevor has everything, until he doesn’t. A tragic accident his senior year is the main turmoil for him in this read. He suffers TBI along with a few other things and is having a very hard time dealing with the change to his life.

Everly is the preacher’s daughter. Enough said, right? Wrong. There are some things going on behind closed doors that Everly doesn’t want anyone to know about. She doesn’t even think her own Mother knows about it. But this “thing” will literally destroy her family and nothing will ever be the same.

The summer after their senior year, Trevor has to make up a class and guess who his tutor is? Yep, Everly. Once they both take the time to “get to know” each other, there is NO WAY that they can stay away from each other. Especially considering that being with one another calms each other down.

There is no sex or heavy petting in this book. There highest flame I could give this was .5 for a couple of kisses and “implied” sexual activity amongst friends. If you have a child that likes to read and are looking for a good book with good morals, this is it.
