Popular young-adult author Ned Vizzini, who wrote It’s Kind of a Funny Story — adapted into a film starring Zach Galifianakis, Emma Roberts, and Oscar nominee Viola Davis — has written another novel about an unusual, complicated teen. The Other Normals (out Sept. 25) centers on 15-year-old Peregrine “Perry” Eckert, who’s seriously obsessed with an uber-dorky role-playing game called Creatures & Caverns. Concerned about his stunted social skills and need for fresh air, Perry’s parents decide to ship him off to summer camp to become a man. He anticipates the worst summer of his life until he arrives at camp and stumbles into the World of the Other Normals, a place where his nerdy childhood may serve him well — but not without connecting with the real world first. Take a look at the cover below!
