Description - Peta Lyre's Rating Normal by Anna Whateley

SHORTLISTED: CBCA 2021 Awards, Book of the Year, Older Readers

'I'm Peta Lyre,' I mumble.
Look people in the eye if you can, at least when you greet them. I try, but it's hard when she is smiling so big, and leaning in.

Peta Lyre is far from typical. The world she lives in isn't designed for the way her mind works, but when she follows her therapist's rules for 'normal' behaviour, she can almost fit in without attracting attention.

When a new girl, Sam, starts at school, Peta's carefully structured routines start to crack. But on the school ski trip, with romance blooming and a newfound confidence, she starts to wonder if maybe she can have a normal life after all.

When things fall apart, Peta must decide whether all the old rules still matter. Does she want a life less ordinary, or should she keep her rating normal?

A moving and joyful own voices debut.

'Honest, perceptive and gutsy; I loved tuning into Peta's world.' - Emily Gale
