Description

Author of the award-winning Miss Bridie Chose a Shovel, Leslie Connor has also won great acclaim for Waiting for Normal. 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.

Professional reviews

"Addison "Addie" Schmeeter is a spunky, likable character who is determined to make lemonade from her lemon of a life. Addie's family has just fallen apart, leaving her with her unstable bipolar "Mommers" while her little half sisters go with their father, her ex-step-father, Dwight. In spite of a totally dysfunctional life with her "all or nothing" mother, Addie maintains an optimistic hope that "normal" will come and life will get better. Angela Rogers gives voice to this 12-year-old heroine, bringing her to life in a heartbreaking but ultimately redeeming story of the resilience of the human spirit. As we listen, Addie's voice fills with determination to take control of her own destiny. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
