From acclaimed author Cathy Lamb comes a warm and poignant story
about mothers and sons, family and forgiveness--and loving someone
enough to let them be true to themselves. . .
Jaden Bruxelle knows that life is precious. She sees it in her
work as a hospice nurse, a job filled with compassion and humor
even on the saddest days. And she sees it in Tate, the boy she has
raised as her son ever since her sister gave him up at birth. Tate
is seventeen, academically brilliant, funny, and loving. He's also
a talented basketball player despite having been born with an
abnormally large head--something Jaden's mother blames on a family
curse. Jaden dismisses that as nonsense, just as she ignores the
legends about witches and magic in the family.
Over the years, Jaden has focused all her energy on her job and
on sheltering Tate from the world. Tate, for his part, just wants
to be a regular kid. Through his blog, he's slowly reaching out,
finding his voice. He wants to try out for the Varsity basketball
team. He wants his mom to focus on her own life for a change, maybe
even date again.
Jaden knows she needs to let go--of Tate, of her fears and
anger, and of the responsibilities she uses as a shield. And
through a series of unexpected events and revelations, she's about
to learn how. Because as dear as life may be, its only real value
comes when we are willing to live it fully, even if that means
risking it all.
Beautifully written, tender and true, "A Different Kind of
Normal " is a story about embracing love and adventure, and
learning to look ahead for the first time. . .
