The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman by Julietta Henderson

The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman by Julietta Henderson

Norman is almost 12, and he along with his best friend Jax have come up with a brilliant five year plan -they’re going to take their comedy routine to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. All work on the plan comes to a screeching halt though when Jax dies. That is, until Norman comes up with another plan – he wants to perform at the Fringe in honor of Jax, and he wants to find his father. Determined to see a smile on her son’s face again, Sadie looks for a way to help Jax with his plan and tells the story to Leonard, a retired gentleman who works as a janitor at her company. Together, the trio embark on a madcap, once in a lifetime adventure to Scotland.

Told in alternating points of view, this story is often funny, sometimes sad, and there truly is never a dull moment. Perfect if you’re looking for something that’s a bit on the lighter side. Recommended for fans of One Plus One by JoJo Moyes or Be Frank With Me by Julia Claiborne.
