Ten Miles Past Normal - Frances O'Roark Dowell Ten Miles Past Normal is quirky and easy read. Janie, the main character is easy to relate to, and her adventures are realistic. The secondary characters, such as Monster, are wonderful and add so much to the story. Another thing that I like is that Janie's mom is present in her life, and portrayed as a "normal" if a bit clueless and a tad annoying at times mom. I think its a good lesson how she realizes how other's opinions and thoughts are dictating her opinion and I liked how she accepted who she was. This is a sweet contemporary, and I really enjoyed.
