Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Frances O’Roark Dowell has garnered the Edgar Award and the Christopher Medal for her keen-eyed, humorous fiction.

Embarrassed by her family’s offbeat lifestyle, Janie Gorman lives with her modern-hippy parents on a rustic goat farm. Smart, creative, and a bit quirky, Janie longs to be seen as normal. But having to milk goats every day is not helping her reach that goal.

a coming of age story

What did you like best about Ten Miles Past Normal? What did you like least?

I liked the main character Jaine and how she interacted with her life .. however I didn't like how the story just went by without anything really happening I felt empty at the end

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I wasn't satisfied and expected more from it

What does Jessica Almasy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

the accent of the characters were presented in an excellent way

Could you see Ten Miles Past Normal being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

no , because it would be too boring

Any additional comments?

I wanted to like this book .. the narrator is what kept me going
