My current favorite book is Faking Normal by Courtney Stevens. I personally love it because I can relate to her life struggles personally, and have been in her shoes more than once.

I love it with my whole heart and never have regretted reading it. It makes me happy to know that i 'm not the only person who has gone through what i went through. Its nice to read stories and see the different perspectives of each person and how they deal with certain things. As i said earlier, I would personally recommend this book for
