Review of The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson


I really enjoyed this book. The characters (even the bullies) and situations are well written and believable. I liked learning about Leo and David, seeing their friendship grow and watching them become who they’re supposed to be. I am so happy they had each other for support. Their families (David’s more than Leo’s) are pretty great too.

Some parts were a little predictable, but that was fine with me. I liked seeing how they got to where I thought they’d be. I realize that’s pretty vague, but I don’t want to spoil anything.

I think this book will be great for transgender teens, their families and allies. It might help people understand what it’s like dealing with what these teens (and adults) go through.

Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

I love reading, listening to music, watching wrestling and spending time with my friends and family. I read mostly Young Adult books and I love paranormal books, especially vampire ones. I am originally from Connecticut, but I live in Maryland now. I have a book buying habit and I'm addicted to the book section of my local thrift shop.
