eARC BOOK REVIEW...Something Like Normal (Something Like Normal #1) by Monica James

Title:  Something Like Normal (Something Like Normal #1) 
Author:  Monica James
Publication Date: May 13th 2014 by Limitless Publishing
Goodreads URL: HERE
Plot:   Mia Lee has a secret… 

A secret she’s kept hidden since she was eight years old, however, Mia will no longer allow that secret to define her. 

An irrevocable decision has left Mia Lee a fugitive and on the run—a circumstance that should leave her weak and scared, yet Mia has never felt so alive.

Under the pseudonym of Paige Cassidy, Mia is ready to live the life she’s never had, and she’s determined not to allow her tainted past dictate her promising future. 

Paige is on a Greyhound bus heading from L.A. to South Boston, Virginia, to start a new life. A life that includes finding her mother, who abandoned her at age three. But what she finds, is four people, who will change her life forever.

Yet no one can outrun their past…

Especially one filled with bitter memories, which refuse to remain hidden.

 My Review 

❢ Okay so right now I want to hunt down Monica James with a pitchfork for ending this book the way she did. Gah!! I NEED MORE!! ❢


A book of misfits:
A girl running from her past
† The bad boy
‡ New friendships
An imperfect love ♥
؟ The plot thickens with unforeseeable events ؟
=An unforgettable journey

And then....a CLIFFHANGER!!




Something Like Normal is a beautiful and honest portrayal of an atypical love and their struggles and triumphs to overcome obstacles of what we call LIFE.

These characters are not perfect. They are flawed and make mistakes.

But it is because of this that makes everything so much more real and genuine as we watch them fight for what they have always felt was out of their reach...A FUTURE...

~~Gah, Monica James...I will be IMPATIENTLY WAITING for book two now!! Grr!! lol~~


*I received an ARC on behalf of the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!*
