Waiting on Wednesday: Something Like Normal

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight books we can't wait for.

Something Like Normal, by Trish Doller
19 June 2012

The GoodRead's summary:
When Travis returns home from a stint in Afghanistan, his parents are splitting up, his brother’s stolen his girlfriend and his car, and he’s haunted by nightmares of his best friend’s death. It’s not until Travis runs into Harper, a girl he’s had a rocky relationship with since middle school, that life actually starts looking up. And as he and Harper see more of each other, he begins to pick his way through the minefield of family problems and post-traumatic stress to the possibility of a life that might resemble normal again. Travis’s dry sense of humor, and incredible sense of honor, make him an irresistible and eminently lovable hero.

This book has a few elements I don't usually go for, but it just sounds so fantastic overall that I'm dying to read it anyway.

  2. I think I'm a bit scared to read this one for fear of the dreaded unhappy ending. Though I do enjoy a book from the male POV and this one feels like it's going to be a bit like The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta so I may give it a try.
