"Something Like Normal" by Trish Doller (Teaser)

Something Like Normal
Author: Trish Doller

"War is only half the battle."

When nineteen year old Travis returns homes from a tour of duty in Afghanistan, his life plays out like a sad country song.  He's lost his girl, lost his car, his parents are getting divorced and his brother Ryan barely speaks to him which is probably because he's the one who stole Travis' girlfriend. (Smooth move dude)

Travis' comeback is also marred by nightmares of his time spent in the desert and the death of his fellow Marine, and BFF, Charlie, for which Travis feels responsible for.  It seems like everyone around him expects life to go back to normal but Travis doesn't even know what "normal" feels like anymore.  It isn't until he runs into Harper, a girl he's known since middle school, that life begins to look up. The more time they spend together the more Travis realizes, Harper might be the key to helping him find a new normal.
