Description

Maybe "normal" isn't all it's cracked up to be.

All twelve year-old Daisy Fisher wants is to be normal -- or at least to not stick out like a sore thumb. But growing up in the house disparagingly referred to as the "Jungle" makes that pretty much impossible. When your parents' activism brands them as a nuisance and your house is overrun with vines and critters, it's not so easy to fit in. And it definitely doesn't help when the neighbours declare your family public enemy number one. Or when your best (and possibly only) friend leaves for summer camp and forgets you exist. Or when your twin brother's cancer might be growing back.

Will this be the summer Daisy changes things for the better? She can't help where she lives, but if she could find a new friend, cultivate some courage, and figure out a way to keep her brother healthy, maybe life will finally be normal. Or will it?

An extraordinary new novel from acclaimed author Deborah Kerbel.
