This Isn't Normal

February 20

Karla Hunsaker lives a normal life with her mother and little brother, until the fall of her junior year of high school when the last of her great-grandparents passes away. She wakes up the morning after the family meeting in their guest room only to find them both alive, along with their daughter, Cheryl, the grandmother Karla never knew. Karla assumes she is dreaming. Cheryl is Karlas age, and they share a strong family resemblance. But she never met her grandmother before this strange event, and her grandfather is an offish, grumpy old man. Author M. R. Tain opens a window in time in This isnt Normal, giving a millennial teen a look at her 1965 counterpart, as well as some fun and games and a legacy that fate had denied her.
