Finding normal / by Stephanie Faris.

Faris, Stephanie, (author.).


After a devastating flood, twelve-year-old Temple is relocated to a new town where she takes it upon herself to organize a fundraiser to help families affected by the flood, but soon realizes the pressure may be too much to handle alongside the other changes in her life.
"When Temple's neighborhood floods following a horrible storm, her entire neighborhood is destroyed. Though Temple's family is lucky enough to secure lodging, it's in a different town...which means she must leave her friends and her beloved school behind and start all over in the middle of the year. At her new school, Temple feels like a spotlight follows her everywhere. She's embarrassed about her donated clothes, she has no friends, and all she sees are kids with pity in their eyes, whispering as she passes in the hall. At home, things aren't any better as the family struggles to adjust while figuring ot how they are going to afford to rebuild their home. When Temple sees a flyer for a local fundraiser, she has an idea to do the same thing for her family. She can get back to her old school--and her old life."-- Adapted from jacket cover.
