Normal is just a setting on the dryer. High school graduate Jeremey Samson is looking forward to burying his head under the covers and sleeping until it's time to leave for college. Then a tornado named Emmet Washington enters his life. The young man with a double major in math and computer science is handsome, forward, wicked smart, interested in dating Jeremey--and he has autism. But Jeremey doesn't judge him for that. He's too busy judging himself, as are his parents, who don't believe in things like clinical depression. When Jeremey's untreated illness reaches a critical breaking point, Emmet is the white knight who rescues him and brings him along as a roommate to The Roosevelt, a quirky new assisted living facility. As Jeremey and Emmet find their feet at The Roosevelt, they begin to believe they can be loved for the men they are beyond their disabilities. But before they can trust enough to fall head over heels, they must trust their own convictions that friendship is a healing force and love can overcome any obstacle.… (mere)

Sometimes it's hard trying to be normal, and this book really showed that honestly "normal" is not all it's out to be, and you dont have to be normal to be happy. Beautiful book with such real characters. ( )

Another amazing book by Ms. Cullinan! But I'm so not ready to let go of these characters. ( )

I saw myself in these pages in ways I never expected to. Beautiful and heartbreaking and perfect in the characters' imperfections. ( )

Beautiful. Better reviews have been written than I could hope to write so I won't even try. Go read them. Then go read this book.

Revised one hour later to add:
So this scene has been playing over and over in my head, so much so I need to share this. This is Jeremey, having overcome a huge obstacle.
I was happy. I was amazing. I’d conquered my fear—or at least learned how to drive it a lot better. When the song ended, everyone clapped. Everyone took pictures of us, with us. We were the Blues Brothers. We were the cool kids. As the barista brought me over a free coffee, smiling as if I’d made her day, I realized I was always this cool. I’d just been waiting to figure it out.
That line, "...I realized I was always this cool. I'd just been waiting to figure it out." It plays in my head.

Someone once asked me why I would want to read a book when I could watch a movie with real action and excitement. They didn't get it when I said I could cast my book with anyone I wanted, the scenery would always be the most beautiful, the sounds pitch-perfect. Every book I read plays out in the most vivid Technicolor in my mind. Every. Single. Time. I open a book.

When I read that scene, I could see Jeremey's bright face; I could feel his joy. I could see the smiling Starbucks worker, I could hear the crowd in the background. The corners of my eyes tightened when I read that last line, my nose tingled, and I knew I had been given a gift. Cullinan gifted me with words that made a beautiful picture in my mind.

Why wouldn't I choose to read if this is my reward? ( )

"I don't know why my brain says such nasty things to me, why its so incredibly mean..my brain is a bully who never leave"

"You're suppose to call them cocks, not penises when it's about sex. I'm not sure why, but it appears to be the rule. But whatever you call them, they're sweaty"

One heart-wrenching quote and a funny one for balance!

Yup the best book written by Heidi Cullinan. So different from the other books. Focus on human nature and disability. The world from the eye of an autistic young man and his depressed boyfriend. ( )
