Publisher's Summary

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.

A Tear-jerking New Definition for "Normal"

I had to read this as I'm studying to be an elementary school teacher, and I needed to read a children's chapter book and write a lesson plan. I never expected to be so moved and I'm so glad I picked this one
