Product Description

Mia Lee has a secret…

A secret she’s kept hidden since she was eight years old, however, Mia will no longer allow that secret to define her.

An irrevocable decision has left Mia Lee a fugitive and on the run—a circumstance that should leave her weak and scared, yet Mia has never felt so alive.

Under the pseudonym of Paige Cassidy, Mia is ready to live the life she’s never had, and she’s determined not to allow her tainted past dictate her promising future.

Paige is on a Greyhound bus heading from L.A. to South Boston, Virginia, to start a new life.

A life that includes finding her mother, who abandoned her at age three. But what she finds, is four people, who will change her life forever.

Yet no one can outrun their past…

Especially one filled with bitter memories, which refuse to remain hidden.

SOMETHING LIKE NORMAL is the first instalment in Monica James’s contemporary, new adult series of the same name. The focus of the series is on nineteen year old Mia Lee (aka Paige Cassidy) and the horror that has been her life.

Told from first person (Mia/Paige) POV, the storyline premise follows Paige as she runs from her past. Landing in South Boston, Virginia with only a few dollars and a backpack with a little more, Paige will discover that sometimes family has nothing to do with the blood in your veins but the people you meet along the way. Much of the back story is told through flashbacks and nightmares.

Monica James pulls the reader into an emotional storyline where a young woman had to make a choice –a choice that haunts her sleep but a choice that had to be made. Meeting Quinn and Tristan Berkeley, Hank the motel operator and Tabitha (her new BFF), Paige learns what it means to be family-a family of misfits who are there when the world begins to spiral out of control.

There is a slight love triangle formula developing between Paige and the Berkeley brothers which amped up my anxiety with an already emotional and heartbreaking storyline. Tristan and Quinn’s family history is just a step up from Mia’s horrific past and Paige (Mia) will find a kindred soul mate in Quinn.

The secondary characters (Tabitha, Quinn, Tristan, Hank) play a major role throughout the story and become one another’s sole source of comfort and support. The world building brings the abhorrent face of abuse, betrayal, neglect and addiction –front and center-in a storyline that will tug at your heart and your soul.

Monica James writes a seductive story about one woman finding solace and support from the unlikeliest of people and places.

Review of Something Like Normal

5 out of 5 stars

Something like Normal by Monica James is a story about a woman who grew up with a drug addicted father. By the time she was 8 years old, she was delivering drugs for her father and his drug dealer. She had a horrific upbringing and never had any normal relationships or new what love was.

When she was 19, her father was going to force her into prostitution to make even more money, but she refused. They got into a fight and she shot her father to save herself and ran away.

She took a bus across the country and ended up in South Boston, Virginia. There she changes her identity and finds a job and a place to stay.

Here with her new start, she makes some friends and falls in love. Unfortunately her past finds her and all hell breaks loose.

At first I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this book, but after the first couple of chapters I was intrigued. I could not put the book down.

The end of the book totally gutted me. My heart completely broke for this poor girl. This story showed how a girl who grew up not having any love in her life, was taught by total strangers how to love.

This book unfortunately has a cliffhanger which is going to slowly kill me as I have to wait, hopefully not too long, to see how it all ends.

I most definitely recommend this book to everyone!
