    Warning: might be life- changing (in a good way) The author tells us about her childhood with extremely religious adoptive parents who threw her out at 16 and about the search for her biological mother a couple of decades later. The book is really difficult to sum up. My attempt to do so anyway: hilarious yet heartbreaking, always brutally honest and sometimes absolutely shocking. To call “Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal” amazing or fantastic does not really do it justice. Potentially life- changing is more accurate. It gave me plenty of food for thought and also brought back many half- forgotten childhood memories of my own. Unexpectedly, reading this book put me in a very good mood -> despite not only laughing, but also crying much more than usually while reading. In short it really cheered me up. Only disadvantage of having read my favourite book of the year already at the beginning of January: finding exciting reading material is very difficult now.
