Far from Normal is exactly that!


Far from Normal by Becky Wallace
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received an eARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Squeals! More squeals! The most squeals! I utterly adored and entirely loved this book and I’m just starting on my overuse of adverbs.

Maddie is a normal girl from Normal, Illinois. She goes to Chicago for the summer to work as an intern at a PR company so that she can get a recommendation letter for college. Her summer starts with a crash thanks to her aunt’s dog and her slim bicycle skills. Luckily the accident results in an charmingly awkward meet cute with a handsome boy named Gabe. The sparks and soccer balls fly from there when she’s tasked by the PR firm to help improve his image. But someone is trying to sabotage her at work and she worries about getting her heart too involved with a client.

I honestly loved it so much that I went back and read my favorite parts, twice.

The voice is believable and relatable. The twists are fun, some expected and others you crash in to. The romance is sweet, but steam is coming off that Chinese food if you know what I mean (#wink). This is a book you’re going to want to buy so that you can reread it often. I can’t wait for my hardback to arrive in September.

Both long to visit London for the summer—Sophie to see the Queen’s Great Exhibition and Mariah to study the world’s finest collection of paintings. But when their cantankerous aunt answers their letter pleading for a place to stay, she insists she only has time and room to spare for one of them.
So, Mariah and Sophie hatch a clever scheme: They will travel to London together and take turns playing the part of "Sophie".
At first the plan runs like clockwork. But as the girls avoid getting caught by increasingly narrow margins and two handsome gentlemen—both of whom think they’re fal…
