It’s the kind of situation most people would dread. Starting at a new high school, in the middle of my senior year, in a new town, in a new state. I know no one. No one knows me. That’s what I’m counting on.
A year ago, Aurora “Rory” Pine was just a normal teenage girl – just as sweet and naive as the fairy tale princess she was named after.
But this isn’t a year ago.
Rory is broken, and now suffering from a debilitating anxiety disorder, wrought with precarious triggers, she moves across the country to escape the source of her troubles. Her plan is anonymity, but that’s easier said than achieved for the new girl having a panic episode outside of calculus. The worst part? There’s a witness – and a gorgeous one at that.
Sam is a walking trigger for Rory. Incredibly handsome, built like the star athlete he obviously is, and undoubtedly popular, Sam outwardly represents everything Rory despises about high school. But as the fates keep throwing them together, a connection sparks that neither ever expected, and certainly couldn’t ignore.
But Sam has issues too, and Rory’s past won’t just stay in the damned past. When friendship evolves into something deeper, can a girl utterly destroyed by the worst kind of betrayal and a boy battling demons of his own ever have a normal relationship? Is that even what they want? Find out in NORMAL, a gritty story of trust and abuse, heartbreak and salvation, and if they’re lucky – love. This is not a flowery romance – not for the faint of heart.

Danielle Pearl is the Amazon and iBooks bestselling author of the Something More series. She lives in the suburbs just outside of New York City with her three delicious children and ever-supportive husband, who (luckily) doesn’t mind sharing her with an array of fictional men. She did a brief stint at Boston University, then worked in marketing before releasing her debut novel, Normal, the success of which helped to land her first “big 5” publishing deal.
Pearl writes mature Young Adult and New Adult Contemporary Romance, and has plans to delve into both Historical and Women’s Fiction in the very near future. As a working mom of three, she doesn’t actually have what one would call “spare time”, but she’d no doubt totally have some super cool hobby if she did. Pearl is completely obsessed with True Crime, and consequently tends to suspect most people she meets are, in fact, closeted serial killers. She enjoys coffee, wine, and cupcakes, and not in moderation.
