Maybe ordinary isn't so bad.

Missy Turner thinks of herself as the most ordinary woman in the world. She has a lot to be thankful for: a great kid, a loving husband, a job she enjoys and the security of living in the small town where she was born. Then one day everything gets turned upside down. She loses her job, catches her husband making out with the neighbor and is briefly taken hostage by a young man who robs the local café. With her world rapidly falling apart, Missy finds herself questioning the certainties she's lived with her whole life.

Zoe Whittall is the author of numerous novels and poetry collections, including the critically acclaimed The Best Kind of People, Holding Still For As Long As Possible and Bottle Rocket Hearts, a Globe and Mail Best Book of 2007. She has a master's degree from the University of Guelph. Originally from Quebec, she has lived in Toronto, Ontario, since 1997. For more information, visit www.zoewhittall.com.
