This poignant and joyful novel is filled with meaningful moments and emotional resonance.

Addie is waiting for normal. But Addie''s mother has an all-or-nothing approach to life: a food fiesta or an empty pantry, her way or no way.

Addie’s mother is bipolar, and she often neglects Addie. All-or-nothing never adds up to normal, and it can''t bring Addie home, where she wants to be with her half-sisters and her stepfather. But Addie never stops hoping that one day, maybe, she''ll find normal.

“A heroine with spunk and spirit offers an inspiring lesson in perseverance and hope. First-rate.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Leslie Connor is the author of several award-winning books for children, includingWaiting for Normal, winner of the ALA Schneider Family Book Award,Crunch,Miss Bridie Chose a Shovel, andDead on Town Line, a young adult novel in verse. She lives with her family in Connecticut.
