Waiting for Normal
Audience: 5th Grade - 8th Grade
The story begins with Dwight, Addie's ex-stepfather, driving Addie and her mom to their new home. A trailer in the middle of the city under the train tracks was not what they expected. Mommers is an irresponsible parent that only thinks of herself and has made some bad choices. Dwight has custody of Addie's two half sisters and he truly cares for her well being. Addie is caught between the chaotic world of her mother and wanting a normal life. She finds friendships, deals with loss, and accepts that her mother will never change.
