Faking Normal is a beautiful problem novel. Stevens writes modern, realistic YA lit with a voice that is at once genuine and wise. This is a book that has the potential to help victims of sexual assault find their voice. Highly recommended, and a must-read for teen-aged girls.
loved this book even named my car Lennox :) hope she makes more like these. I felt very inspired about how they went about the struggles and made me want to do something like that for someone else or write books like these.
really good book but when u start u kind of get lost but when you read more its intresting and it teaches a lot of lessons. its good for people who want to read something diffrent than normal teen fic.
Full disclosure, Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson is one of my favorite books of all time. I read it at a time when things like rape were not discussed in Young Adult literature...ever. I was unique and fresh and raw and sad and it touched something in me that I think is inherent in all young girls, the pain, fear and self-loathing of just being young. Courtney C. Stevens' Faking Normal reminds me that these types of contemporary stories written by women for the young adult crowd are still relevant and still very much needed. I am glad that the market is still open and that girls still have the opportunity to read these stories (even though it does make me sad that they are still necessary). I have read this story before, but that does not mean that my students have and I will be glad to share this with those who still need it.
Recommended for: fans of contemporary YA, you like Laurie Halse Anderson's Speak (and if you have not read this novel, go out and get it NOW), romance, girls who find their voices, if you are searching for your own
