Waiting on Wednesday - Something Like Normal

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that showcases our most wanted upcoming releases.

"Something Like Normal" by Trish Doller
*Release Date: June 19th, 2012*

A powerful debut novel about a young Marine's return home from Afghanistan and the new life and love he finds while fending off the ghosts of war.

When Travis Stephenson returns home from Afghanistan, his parents are on the brink of divorce, his brother has stolen his girlfriend and his car, and nightmares of his best friend getting killed keep him completely spooked. But when he runs into Harper Gray, a girl who despises him for trashing her reputation with a middle school lie, life actually starts looking up. As Travis and Harper see more of each other, he starts falling for her and a way through the family meltdown, the post-traumatic stress, and the possibility of an interesting future begins to emerge.

I've had quite a few friends and family members in the military that have had to go overseas. It is always startling to see how different they are when they come home. I like that this one talks about possibility and sounds like it might have a hopeful, if not happy, ending. Coming home stories don't always end well, so it will be nice to read a little dose of hope :0)


  1. This one sounds like such an emotional and memorable read. Nice choice :)

  2. Someone else had this one too and it looks great! The story sounds really cute. Great pick and happy holidays!

    Here's my WoW!
