The Funny Thing about Norman Foreman By Julietta Henderson

The Funny Thing about Norman Foreman By Julietta Henderson


It was a journey they would always remember . . . for a friend they’d never forget.

Norman and Jax are a legendary comedic duo in waiting, with a five-year plan to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe by the time they’re fifteen. But when Jax dies before they turn twelve, Norman decides a tribute act for his best friend just can’t wait, so he rewrites their plan:

1. Look after mum | 2. Find Dad | 3. Get to the Edinburgh Fringe

Sadie knows she won’t win Mother of the Year and she’s not proud she doesn’t know who her son’s father is. But when she finds Norman’s list, all she wants is to see her son smile again… So they set off on a pilgrimage to Edinburgh, making a few stops to find Norman’s dad along the way.

My Thoughts:

If this book taught me anything it was to never give up on your dreams, as long as you have the determination then anything is possible. I really warmed to Norman and wanted him to achieve all his dream goals in life. Norman and his best mate Jax have made a plan, one that involves being a comedy duo and going to the Edinburgh Fringe where they want to perform. Unfortunately tragedy strikes with Jax and Norman has to re write their plan but he is determined to get there, with his mum on his side the pair go on a pilgrimage to Edinburgh, what will they find when they get there and will Norman be able to perform without his best mate by his side? A lovely tale of sheer determination and help from his mum makes this a perfect read.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
