Anything But Normal

by Melody Carlson
Revell Publishing

Sophie is getting ready to start her senior year of high school.  She is going to be the chief editor of her high school's paper, she is on the honor roll and is college bound.  But what happens during the summer becomes a secret she is determined to keep as long as she can, her world starts to crumble.  When the secret is revealed will her friends and family stand by her side or leave her to deal with it alone.

Okay,  now my opinion.  I did not really like this book.  From the first page I knew the "secret" Sophie was keeping. So no working up to it, anyone could guess what it is. The back cover of the book was not accurate.  She did not get the attention of the hottest guy in school.  Not sure if there was a mistake or something.  Anyway, the book is all about how Sophie is keeping her secret from her friends and family.  I was disappointed how easily everything seemed to for Sophie spiritually speaking.  She did not seem to take the spiritual aspect of her "secret" a seriously as she should have.  She was more concerned about what other people would think about her then what God thinks.  I would not want my daughter to read this book because I want her to realize that forgiveness from God is more important then what her friends think.

List Price: $9.99
