Normal is the Watchword is the first book in a new series from Jasmine Tru called the Watchword series. Right off the bat I was drawn to the beautiful and vivid cover. The story started off pretty interesting. We are dropped into the life of Juniper, or Juni who is trying to complete her senior photography project to win a scholarship to college. I really liked the start of the story. It was very every day life writi

The world is filled with unknown wonders. Some of us are lucky to see some of them. Others are fated to be part of them.

Juniper’s a senior in high school, and her life is as ordinary as it gets. She spends her school hours battling senioritis with her best friend, Carrie. Then she meets Darius, a guy she’s never really noticed before, and things get interesting. They have a connection she can’t explain…at least she thinks they do. She’s just not ready to trust her instincts.

With her senior photo

I was asked by the author to read and review this book.

When I first started reading this book, I wasn't quite sure what I was getting into. I knew it was going to have some kind of a mystery element to it, but otherwise, I wasn't entirely sure what it would be about. Still, I wanted to find out.

And it was a pretty exciting read. The beginning quarter of the book is a bit slow, though. It takes a long time to really get the story rolling. But once it does, it keeps rolling and rolling from one ex

Oh my God! Normal is the Watchword made me want to switch genres...I love this book. It's like Buffy the Vampire meets Veronica Mars.

While trying to complete a photography project for school, Juniper and her bff Carrie witness something they were never supposed to witness. Suddenly, Juniper and Carrie's lives are in grave danger. When Carrie goes missing, Juniper enlists the help of mysterious soccer playing boy toy Darius to help. But Darius is more than meets the eye and has a little secret o

I really liked this book! My favorite part is the friendship between Juni and Carrie. I felt like I was joining my two best friends around campus. It is so nice to read about a strong female friendship. Their relationship is what grounds the story...it leads them into trouble and keeps Juni motivated to fight for what she wants. Though there is a romantic element to this book too, it's clear that Juni's priority in this book will always be her best friend. It's so refreshing to see girls put eac ...more

Normal is the Watchword is the first book in the Watchword series by Jasmine Tu.
Juniper was an ordinary girl with a passion for photography, until the day she photographs a murder. From that point on, her life, and that of her best friend Carrie, will never be the same. Meeting Darius, a quiet guy in her high school, she finds out that the world is bigger than she thought and there’s a battle raging in the shadows. But joining this battle will cost her way of life, if not her life.
I loved the co

I was given a copy of "Normal is the Watchword" by the author, Jasmine Tru, in exchange for an honest review. This is a paranormal fiction that I think is suited for teens. The story line is a popular one right now with half-angel's running around unknown to the population. Some are good and some are evil. If you are looking for biblical fiction, this isn't it, but if you are looking for plain old make-believe fiction, you'll enjoy the read. On the positive, I like the two main characters.

Jasmine Tru has been in love with the written word since she was a child. Growing up with a love of storytelling, she shamelessly reads and writes about romance, supernatural fantasies, and pretty much anything featuring a woman that kicks butt.

In her humble opinion, the best present entails a bottle of good wine and a great book. But a spa day, flying trapeze class, or a plane ticket to a tropic
