Addie’s life is all or nothing. Will
it ever be just normal?
Order your copy of the new audiobook from Leslie Connor,
author of the award-winning Miss Bridie Chose a Shovel. Kirkus calls Waiting
for Normal “first-rate,” and Publishers Weekly said in a starred review
that “readers will gravitate” toward Addie, the book’s young heroine.
Addie’s life has always been all or nothing. And now that Dwight and mommers are divorced,
Addie’s stuck in a tiny trailer on a Schenectady corner with a mom who’s rarely there.
Finding friendship at the gas station across the street, Addie clings to the ever-dimming
possibility that one day she’ll have a normal, happy home.
“Connor has created a winning and positive father-figure/daughter
relationship.”—School Library Journal, starred review
“This book persuades that good people and delightful possibilities are all around, even in
the most unpromising circumstances.”—KLIATT
