Normal People by Sally Rooney
When Conversations with Friends debuted in 2017, people took notice. Sally Rooney now brings us Normal People, the story of Connell and Marianne. They don't speak at school, partly because Marianne isn't very popular, and partly because Connell's mother works for Marianne's family as a housekeeper. When a connection forms between the teenagers, where will it lead? Normal People is a smart, nuanced take on the "will they/won't they" story, written in spare prose that are deceptively simple.
