WoW: Faking Normal

RELEASE: Feb 25, 2014 

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.

I adore contemporary novels, and I love novels that break my heart and mend it back together. I don't care if that sounds self-depricating. I just think being emotionally affected by a book is a beautiful thing.  I can tell that this book will hold a special space in my heart, and this isn't because Courtney is a local author (who is super sweet, btw).  So yeah, I'm super excited for this to release in a few days!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Book bloggers present upcoming books they can’t wait to read and share their enthusiasm about new releases.


  1. I do love novels that just make my heart ache and make me want to cry for exactly the same reasons. Being touched by a book that deeply is just really special! And this one sounds very promising! :) Thanks for sharing!
