Loved it! 😍

She's a punk, a skateboarder, and a fierce and loyal friend always there for her friends no matter what the cost.

Norma Jean or NJ has had a hell of a hard life. Having spent much of her life in foster care she has been bounced around from home to home for as long as she can remember. She also tends to blackout, during which she does bad things, like shoplifting. She does not know when or how these blackouts happen let alone how to stop them so she, unfortunately, has to deal with the consequences.

I feel so bad for her because from the beginning it feels like the odds are totally against her. Every time she seems to reach a plateau in the drama another curveball comes hurling her way. One thing that seems to help is her new friend named Angel who becomes a central part of her life and is an excellent shoulder to cry on. Angel is the first person that she has let herself trust in a long time.

NJ it turns out is actually way more important to this world than she ever realized. Soon the reasons for her blackouts, visions, and crazy circumstances become more clear. To the outside world, she may seem like just another skateboarding punk who is yet to get her life together, but the truth is far more amazing.

I am a 36-year-old freelance writer. As a child, I was on the CTW show Sesame Street and since then have harbored a profound love for books. Whenever I was immobile due to wearing a cast I would be reading. No matter how much stress I am dealing with day to day a book takes me away from it all.
