    For this reading cycle I read Normal Girl by Molly Jong-Fast. The genre of this book is realistic fiction because some things in the book could actually happen in real life. The genre realistic fiction is defined as “a genre consisting of stories that could have actually occurred to people or animals in a believable setting. These stories resemble real life, and fictional characters within these stories react similarly to real people.” This book is a must read in my opinion. The book talks about expectations parents have for their teenagers and their lives.
    This book is all about a girl named Miranda who is a teenage crackhead who murdered her boyfriend, but nobody knows that except for her. The guilt of her boyfriend being gone because of her really starts to get to her when she’s at his funeral around all of his family and friends. Miranda had already been doing drugs long before her boyfriend died, however once he was gone Miranda went out of control, and got seriously addicted to all types of drugs and going out every night partying with random guys she meets. MIranda’s close friends start to realize that she is going off the deep end and even more out of control than usual. Night after night Miranda goes out to clubs and gets herself into more trouble when she always finds herself in the public bathroom snorting cocaine off of dirty toilet seats to get her to last through the night.
    I would rate this book with ⅖ stars because I think that this book was dragged on for too long at the end. In the beginning of the book I was hooked and excited to see what was going to happen next and if Miranda would ever be able to stop doing drugs and fix her life, but the whole rest of the book talks about a different night she went out each time. One chapter would be about her being hungover and then going out to a new bar with a new guy or person she meets, and the next chapter would be the same thing but a different night. In my opinion I think the author should have written more about Miranda’s personal life and less about her doing drugs and ruining her life night after night.

    I thought this was a poor man's version of Glamorama, from a female point of view. The things that would have made the book more interesting were barely skimmed over, instead focusing on odd acronyms and boring details.

    I'm glad I didn't read the author bio until I was 10 pages from the end, otherwise my view would have been even more tainted by the famous last name. I wish that a book by an unknown author had been published in the place of this.

    It's short and a quick read, but it won't enrich your life in any way by reading it, just waste a few hours of your time if you're bored.

    A quick and easy read. I'm surprised there are so many bad reviews, but it seems like there was too much focus on the first half of the book rather than the second half. The main character is a 19-year-old unlikable socialite with a trust fund and a huge drug problem, but it shows a change of attitude throughout rehab and afterwards with AA meetings. I think if the book was a bit longer it could have focused even more on the afterwards, but to me it was still a decent book if you make it to the end.

    a hard one for me to get into--and I almost quit, but I hung in there and made it through! Having a brother that is a recovering addict, it gave me a small glimpse at what his life was (and is) like at times.

    Normal for her is so not normal for me! It was so fun getting caught up in this lifestyle that I will never live:)

    Daughter of Erica Jong and Jonathan Fast, Molly's first book is witty, funny and totally relevant. I loved it.

    This is truly one of my favourite books of all time. Molly Jong-Fast really throws you into the life of this damaged socialite with such detail, you feel as if you are watching her every move. I felt this was a very realistic rendition of a young woman's personal struggles with substances and relationships. I would recommend this to anyone, but especially to those who enjoy reading about the lives of the rich and famous, as it definitely shows you a darker side to their world.

    I kept hoping, at some point this book would get to the story. Doing drugs, going to rehab, and coming home are not my idea of a good story There wasn't any depth. The author is from a privileged family, which she writes about in the book. I was more than halfway through and waiting for something to happen other than going from party to party being wasted, drunk and semi-conscious. I won't be passing this one on to any friends.

    A spare, druggy novel of manners written by a precocious, reportedly druggy undergraduate: ring any bells? What does any of this mean and how bad does it look for all the indie authors out there who just want to write? Well it does look that bad, bleak and dark. Dont give up

    Very quick read. Not recommended reading for prudes. Unfortunately I didn’t gain any insight or enjoyment from this story that is solely a monologue of a self-centered drug addict (not referring to the author).
