Something Like Normal
by Trish Doller

Goodreads synopsis:
When Travis returns home from a stint in Afghanistan, his parents are splitting up, his brother’s stolen his girlfriend and his car, and he’s haunted by nightmares of his best friend’s death. It’s not until Travis runs into Harper, a girl he’s had a rocky relationship with since middle school, that life actually starts looking up. And as he and Harper see more of each other, he begins to pick his way through the minefield of family problems and post-traumatic stress to the possibility of a life that might resemble normal again. Travis’s dry sense of humor, and incredible sense of honor, make him an irresistible and eminently lovable hero.

I am seriously getting into my YA contemporary at the moment, and I really didn't expect that to be happening any time soon. At the beginning of this year, I really was a fantasy/sci-fi reader - I do have tastes outside of these genres, but contemporary did not usually feature in this much, and they were certainly not among my favourite books.
2012 has been the year to change this, though, with Saving June by Hannah Harrington, New Girl by Paige Harbison and Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry, being among my top favourites of the year so far!
So now, to me, this sounds like exactly the kind of book I want to be reading right this moment. I will definitely be getting my hands on this very, very soon!

I did not read much YA contemporary but I certainly enjoyed Pushing the Limits. :)

Yeah, I tend to stick more with Paranormal Romance. But have been known to step outside my realm of normalcy.
