It's just a normal Tuesday for sixteen-year-old Kai, until suddenly it's anything but. She's received a letter from her beloved older sister, Jen, a letter that begins, My very bestest sister, Kai, if you are reading this, I am already gone. From that moment on, Kai's life will never be the same, as she is forced to deal with the shock and horror of losing Jen to suicide. Consumed with grief, Kai looks for answers, lashes out at people who love her and eventually turns to excessive drinking and drugs, all with disastrous results and no relief from her suffering. Struggling with their own sorrow, Kai's parents realize she needs more help than they can give, and they enroll her in the Tree House, a 'grief camp' for children. Though reluctant to go, once she's there, Kai finally finds others who truly understand her loss. No longer alone, she's able to begin dealing with her pain. And to see light at the end of the dark tunnel.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Just a Normal Tuesday is raw, real, and absolutely beautiful. It's a rare book that can make you cry, laugh, swoon, and cheer. I loved this wholeheartedly and never wanted it to end.--Veronica Rossi, New York Times bestselling author of Under the Never Sky
There is grief and there is grace, and this book is full of both. A look at love, loss, and learning to live with questions that have no answers. Kim Turrisi is an exquisite new voice.--Martha Brockenbrough, author of The Game of Love and Death, finalist for the Kirkus Prize
The anguish of loss. The hope in recovery. A brave, real, impassioned debut.--Ellen Hopkins, New York Times bestselling author of Crank
... the timeless themes of love, loss, and moving forward will find a readership among those who are also grieving and need to know they're not alone.--Kirkus Reviews
