I read it maybe 15 years ago and remember thinking that the girl in the relationship reminded me of myself. Wonder if I'd think the same thing if I read it now!(less)

I think the big mystery in my life has been my family's mental illness--why it's so prevalent, and what caused it. I don't think it would make a good plot though, because I tried to solve it in my second memoir and couldn't! But there are certainly some fictitious directions I could take with it!(less)

North of Normal by Cea Sunrise Person
"If you enjoyed Jeannette Walls' memoir The Glass Castle, you'll enjoy this one too. I know I did!"
North of Normal by Cea Sunrise Person
"I really enjoyed this. Very similar to The Glass Castle. If you liked that one you'll like this. Her childhood was very crazy but love how she tells the story. "
North of Normal by Cea Sunrise Person
"Wow! I can't imagine what Cea Sunrise Person's childhood must have been like. I am having a hard time not being judgmental as I compare her life to mine, as her mom is only 7 years older than I. It is hard to review this without giving things away..." Read more of this review »

“Sometimes I feel like I’m defined by what I’ve survived, and I’m not sure if I like that.”
Cea Sunrise Person, North of Normal: A Memoir of My Wilderness Childhood, My Unusual Family, and How I Survived Both

“I thought about my mother, who, though she had made her share of mistakes with me, had refused to let her darkest experiences ruin her life. And in that way, her time on earth had perhaps been more successful than my own.”
Cea Sunrise Person, North of Normal: A Memoir of My Wilderness Childhood, My Unusual Family, and How I Survived Both

“As my husband passes by me, he brushes my lips with a kiss. My children’s laughter fills the air. Gulls circle overhead. I stand with sand beneath my feet and the sun warm on my head. There’s rarely a moment of this life of mine that goes by unappreciated.”
