4 out of 5 Stars
A tale for anyone who has felt like an outsider or that family is just too embarrassing.
Charles Harrisong may live in Normal, but he and his family are anything but normal. The fact that there are so many kids in their family is one strike; they are poor is the second; and the third is that they stand out wherever they go.
Charles has spent his young life trying to avoid the scrutiny of his fellow students but has been unsuccessful. After one really ugly incident at school, his parents decide it’s time for a change. It’s time to deliver the family from Normal.
Good for age 11 and up
