What’s promising about this story is that it has an interesting concept which I’m hoping will be built upon in the next book in the series. For me, the paranormal part of the book took much too long to kick off but the lengthy intro helped give a good sense of Zoe and her friends/family. I didn’t really warm to Zoe as a protagonist but she had redeeming qualities which allowed me empathise with her predicament. I never quite bought the love interest part of the story either. I also got a little confused with the introduction of a lot of different characters by the end of the book, and found the whole ending…lacking. Saying all this, “Goodbye Normal” kept me turning pages, so give it a go if you’re a fan of YA paranormal concepts that aren’t too typical.
