The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman

Bookseller Recommendation

The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman

“For a great book with all the feels, you can't beat The Funny Thing About Norman Forman. Sadie is an imperfect but devoted single mother to 12 year old Norman who has just suffered the tragic loss of his larger-than-life best friend. In an impulsive attempt to ease his mourning, Sadie promises Norman she'll help him accomplish a couple of epic goals. Now she's in way over her head but they're off on an adventure full of heart, laughter, and memorable characters. I absolutely fell in love with this surprising and heartfelt novel. Highly recommend for fans of Fredrik Backman.”

Description

"Charming, warm and uplifting...there is so much to love about this book."—Laurie Frankel, New York Times bestselling author of This is How It Always Is

A triumphant and touching debut about the unlikeliest superstar you’ll ever meet.


Twelve-year-old Norman Foreman and his best friend, Jax, are a legendary comedic duo in waiting, with a plan to take their act all the way to the Edinburgh Fringe. But when Jax dies, Norman decides the only fitting tribute is to perform at the festival himself. The problem is, Norman’s not the funny one. Jax was.

There’s also another, far more colossal objective on Norman’s new plan that his single mom, Sadie, wasn’t ready for: he wants to find the father he’s never known. Determined to put a smile back on her boy’s face, Sadie resolves to face up to her own messy past, get Norman to the Fringe and help track down a man whose identity is a mystery, even to her.

Julietta Henderson’s delightfully funny and tender debut takes us on a road trip with a mother and son who will live in the reader’s heart for a long time to come, and teaches us that—no matter the odds—we must always reach for the stars.
