Details

David Piper has always been an outsider. His parents think he's gay. The school bully thinks he's a freak. Only his two best friends know the real truth - David wants to be a girl. On the first day at his new school Leo Denton has one goal - to be invisible. Attracting the attention of the most beautiful girl in Year 11 is definitely not part of that plan. When Leo stands up for David in a fight, an unlikely friendship forms. But things are about to get messy. Because at Eden Park School secrets have a funny habit of not staying secret for long . . .

'A life-changing and life-saving book' - Philip Pullman

‘By turns almost unremittingly poignant, caustically honest and very, very funny, The Art of Being Normal, is, as you might expect, the antithesis of what it says on the tin. I have often heard it said that a book made someone “laugh out loud” and thought this only existed in book reviews, but Lisa Williamson’s intelligent, thought-stoking novel genuinely had me softly chuckling on more than one occasion.’ - The Guardian

‘Williamson captures the bewilderment and confusion of a lonely teenager. The fear that you have no friends, the reality of raiding the fridge for comfort food and feeling that everyone else in the world is attractive and wanted. […] The Art of Being Normal is a passionate and gripping tale.’ - The Telegraph
