REVISED: Like "Fried Green Tomatoes," this short novel explores a town's misjudgment of two spirited young women, one an insider and the other an outsider. Following 9-11, 2001, and the attacks on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, the residents of Statenville, Georgia are edgy and eager to lay blame, suspicious of newcomers, then out pops a girl named "Normal" from a chicken truck en route to Florida. Daff, well-known in the town, feels obligated to take Normal in, and becomes involved in the town's war against all things abnormalespecially Normal.

Good southern story with the kind of small-town characters I like to read about. Especially loved the landlady who wouldn't allow the curtains to be opened in her rental travel trailer. Would read this author again.
