M.R. Tain is the Minnesota Author in the Spotlight for the month of May and he is giving away 5 copies of his young adult novel, This Isn't Normal to Booksnob readers. This giveaway is open internationally and will end the last day of May. Good Luck.
Here is the synopsis of This Isn't Normal from Amazon:
The woman of the house came into the living room. Did you make your phone call, honey? Karla looked at the woman carefully. This could beyesmy great-grandmother, Vera Carlson. She looks young! 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. Karla spends a week immersed in mid-60s culture with her sixteen-year-old grandmother. The culture shock continues when Karla finds that she doesnt quite fit in, in 2005 anymore. Follow Karla on her subsequent journey as her memories complicate her life. It isnt until her senior year that she makes sense of the experience and is finally able to unwrap the gift that Cheryl unknowingly passed onto her.
