Description - Norman and Brenda by Colin Thompson

Some people face the world with confidence. They are popular, charismatic, incredibly successful and beautiful. They achieve things by sheer determination, talent and cosmetic surgery. They have big houses, big cars and big hair. You know their gorgeous children will become even richer and more famous than they are simply by breathing and tying their own shoelaces. Norman and Brenda are nothing like them. Norman feels like everyone else is out living their life, but his hasn t arrived yet. Brenda feels as if life is going on in the next room but when she goes into the next room, it moves out into the garden. Their destinies are inextricably intertwined
