Something like Normal - Trish Doller Travis is one of those characters with a lot of growing up to do. But I liked the fact that he kept messing up -- it made him seem very real. Though his ex-girlfriend is clearly bad news, Travis keeps going back to her. When he strikes up a tentative relationship with Harper, a girl he owes a huge apology due to an incident back in middle school, I wanted him to pull himself together and be the guy Harper deserved. He doesn't, and I think Harper puts up with him a little too much and their relationship moved a little too fast. But with all his flaws, Travis is a character I really rooted for. He has a jerk of a dad, a brother who betrayed him, and is carrying around a huge load of guilt about the death of his best friend, Charlie. Something Like Normal is a moving book with a flawed yet appealing main character and an against-the-odds romance.Check out full review and find other great books to read and win on my blog!
