      ‘‘A Blind Guide to Normal’’ is the companion novel to ‘‘A Blind Guide to Stinkville,’’ but it can very easily be read as a standalone, so definitely don’t fret about that, if you’re curious about it. And I think you should be, frankly, because this isn’t the sort of story you will come across every day. Let’s say that there aren’t a thousand Beth Vrabels in the world.What I like most about this author is how much emphasis she puts on relationships. Many authors prefer t [...]

Definitely one of my favorite 4th grade to 8th grade middle grade school genre authors!!! All her thought provoking and emotional topic fiction titles are enjoyable reads for high school years teens and adults as well.Language: No profanity.Sensuality: One G rated light quick kiss between two 8th graders.Source: My personal p [...]

      Very real and good. I loved the way Beth Vrabel wrote this book. It really put me in the moment that the characters were in.

    4. Ben says:

      A blind guide to normal was a good book about Richie Ryder Raymond. He has a lot of stuff going on at the same time. Karate, moving, school drama. His parents are both scientists and he doesn't get to see them a lot.

    5. Ella Zegarra says:

      Original de: El Blog del Gato - El Extraño Gato del CuentoEn este libro Ryder tiene que enfrentarse a ser especial por razones diferentes a las que él está acostumbrado. Beth Vrabel lo hace de una manera entretenida de leer, dándole dignidad a sus personajes, sin la necesidad de irse al extremo melodramático.A Blind Guide to Normal es divertido, un poco ridículo a veces, es el tipo de libro que nos deberían dar en el colegio, un libro que normalice la discapacidad, que nos muestre tanto a [...]

    6. Sarah says:

      IN the book "A Blind Guide to Normal," Beth Vrabel did a really good job at writing this book. My favorite part was the whole thing really because when Ryder first moved to his new school/home, I could sort of connect because my family has had to move a lot because of money problems. But then again I couldn't really connect and that also attracted me because I was interested on how it would make someone feel and what it would be like to leave everything and start over. Like when Ryder was saying [...]

    7. Rory Bemis says:

      I recommend this book because it is funny and meaningful. It is meaningful because it is saying that anyone can do anything they want if they put there minds to it.

    8. Archana Vasudevan says:

      Real and hilarious at times. A+!Very down-to-earth choice of words. Feelings seldom came across as fake. Held my attention throughout the book. Ending was a bit bland but I guess that's how real life goes too, huh! Great read!!

    9. Luke M says:

      I think it was a good book about Ryder who left school/town thinking it would be better but turned out he missed it.

    10. Avery N. says:

      Really good book! I really liked the karate aspect(duh) and didn't expect the romance, but it helped add to the story.

    11. Joy says:

      Their may be something I have spoiled but it's not much. I thought this book was really good. Something that made me feel bad was, Ryder and how he was "getting" along with other kids at his new school. Ryder was being himself and didn't really know what he was doing and he then started a fight with a peer. Also Ryder has a prosthetic eye. He has been attending Addison School for blind kids. Ryder made lot's of friends at Addison School one of them is Alice, they became close and after Ryder got [...]

      In my review of Beth Vrabel's previously published middle grade novel A Blind Guide to Stinkville, I mentioned that the author's work is one part of why children's lit has been soaring this year. Now, with A Blind Guide Normal, my total of Vrabel titles read in 2016 comes to four (!), each one going from strength to strength, tackling different, challenging questions and topics, with this particular title a seriously poignant and surprising read.At the heart of the story we have our narrator and [...]

      Taking place in Beth Vrabel’s Blind Guide universe, readers get to hang out with Ryder, also known as Richie Raymond, in Beth Vrabel’s A Blind Guide to Normal. Ryder is leaving Addison, the school for the blind we were introduced to in A Blind Guide to Stinkville, to head to “normal” school for eighth grade. The thing is, at Addison, Richie was the Big Man on Campus. With his jokes about his prosthetic eye and ability to find a witty comeback for every situation, he was the King of the H [...]

      This review is also available on my blog, Read Till Dawn.I always meant to read A Blind Guide to Stinkville. I even went so far as to check it out from the library one time about a year ago, but then life happened and I had to turn it back in before I got around to reading it. When I got an email from Sky Pony Press asking whether I'd like to review its sequel/companion, A Blind Guide to Normal, I figured this was my chance to read a book at least connected to Stinkville. I went in with very hig [...]

      4.5A Blind Guide to Normal is a realistically rich tale about struggling with emotions and how to cope with the things we have to live with. It is an adventure of emotions, one's self, and how to cope, with characters that will keep you laughing even when you want to cry.Ryder is fourteen and he wants to be normal, so he convinces his parents to let him go to a normal public school instead of a school for the blind. Plans don't always work out how you expect them to, but is it always such a bad [...]

    16. Angie says:

      This book is a companion novel to A Blind Guide to Stinkville, but it can stand on its own. Ryder and his mom are moving in with his grandpa. His dad has an assignment to study bison in Alaska and his mom is doing research on bugs in Washington, DC. Grandpa lives nearby and even though Grandpa and Dad don't really communicate it seems best to live with him. Not only is Ryder moving to a new place to live with someone he barely knows he is also going to public school for the first time in years. [...]

      Public library copyRyder and his mother move in with his paternal grandfather in the D.C. area when his father needs to spend time studying wildlife out west and his mother needs to work in the area. For Ryder, the change involves not only living in his smart aleck grandfather's 1970s shag infested house, but attending a public school instead of a private one. This is difficult because Ryder lost an eye to cancer and has the challenges associated with reduced vision. It doesn't help that Ryder m [...]

    18. Kim says:

      I didn't want this book to end! This book is for kids who love Wonder and Out of My Mind. I love how layered and complicated each of Vrabel's characters are. I rooted for every single one of them.

    19. Mark Buxton says:

      My name is Ryder, and I have my eye on you, ha ha! My right eye is fake, and some people freak when I pop it out (like my homeroom teacher!) I'm starting eighth grade at a new school, I'm living with my wacky grandfather, and my worst handicap might be myself. Things I'm thinking sometimes jump out of my mouth. On the plus side, Jocelyn, the girl next door, is gorgeous, but her boyfriend, Max, is the most popular, perfect kid at school. That doesn't stop me from hating him. I don't know why I fe [...]

    20. Hussain Ahmed says:

      a nice fun story. had some good laughs. nice story telling style.

    21. Meg says:

      Richie Ryder Raymond is leaving the school for blind children and heading to public school. His wit and intelligence serve him well and are his complete downfall. He turns everything into a joke and pushes away anyone who might offer help and support.Some nice lessons about giving people a second chance and being honest with yourself. (I guess you could call this a sequel to A Blind Guide to Stinkville, but it really stands alone.)Source: ARC from publisher

    22. Ms Threlkeld says:

      I adored Blind Guide to Stinkville, but really struggled to get through 100 pages of this. I didn't connect with the narrator, which is probably why I left this sitting on my nightstand untouched for almost a month.

    23. Angela says:

      randombookmuses/2016/10/1The publisher provided an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

    24. Carrie says:

      Richie "Ryder" Raymond is the popular kid at his school for the blind- always making jokes, showing his boyish charm. He has one artificial eye, "Artie", and low vision in the other. When the opportunity presents for him to attend "normal" school outside of Washington D.C Ryder jumps at the chance to climb a whole new ladder of popularity. In order to do this, though, he and his mom have to move in with his eccentric Gramps, who is stuck in the 1970's and proud of it. Things don't start out as p [...]

    25. Red says:

      I really liked this book. I thought each of the characters' voices were very true. Unfortunately the adults were more like TV sitcom caricatures. Luckily the story is 90% about the kids, and oh so enjoyable.

    26. Lilianne says:

      It was a good book and had a mostly good story line, I would say it was too quick of a read and needed some more attention to detail.

    27. Kim says:

      I read this directly after finishing "A Blind Guide to Stinkville." I didn't dislike this book, but just preferred the first one. I think I might have preferred a middle book between the two: getting to follow Alice to her new school, meeting Richie Ryder there, and then following Richie in this story.One annoying and distracting element was that every time the word "arm" was in the book it was printed as "arM" - the capital M was throughout the book, and even showed up in a few other words as w [...]

    28. Emma M says:

      Imagine being different than everyone else, having to hide your insecurity with humor. As Richie Ryder develops a crush on someone he realizes that he will have to become enemy's with her boyfriend, also a town-hero and the most popular kid in school. along with his grandfather signing him up for quilting and his dad halfway across the world, can he make it through the school year?

      3 1/2. I don't know. It had its momentsme really outstanding ones. But it felt long. And it wasn't.

    30. Karen Trier says:

      I would have rated it a little higher, but there were so many strange typos in it: the word "arm" or "arms" always had a capital M. Weird!
