Honor Rochester has always considered herself a regular Plain Jane. She's a growing sixteen-year-old, intent on making the most of the world she lives in. She has a loving mother (most of the time), and a talented younger sister. There's nothing else she could ever want in life, aside from her late father, of course.
When her life takes an unexpected turn in school one day, Honor begins to question the world as she knows it. A classmate has disappeared, and there are people intent on capturing her. The thought of submitting to someone else's will is mind-boggling, something she knows she won't do. Unfortunately, that's a choice she's forced to make if she's to survive her unexpected ordeal.
Determined to fight the circumstances she now finds herself in, Honor vows to do everything possible to overcome the obstacles that now stand in her way. In her mind, she'll be able to go home when the time comes. It doesn't matter that there are those who are keeping things from her. They want her to remain in the dark about who and what she truly is. Everything inside of herself rebels at the thought, and she'll do all she can to gain her freedom by any means necessary.
As the secrets surrounding her existence surface, Honor soon realizes that there's a lot her mother never told her. Part of her knows that she did so in the hopes of protecting her from what's out there, while another part of her resents the fact that she's been kept in the dark about so much. Forced to confront who and what she really is, she soon begins to understand that not everything is what it seems. If she's to survive what's headed her way, she'll need to play the sordid game game she's been thrust into against her will. The question is, will she come out of it on top when the time comes?
Ordinary is a great to start to the Anything But series. We find ourselves immersed in Honor's world. A world where she's cocooned in a comfortable bubble, one that's soon shattered in the blink of an eye. She ends up dealing with a lot of adversity throughout the book, and slowly grows an even thicker skin to the one she already has. There are quite a few twists and turns I never saw coming. One in particular made me go, "WOW!" And no, I won't mention which one. You'll have to read the book if you'd like to find out what I mean. Trust me, though, it's worth it. Definitely looking forward to book two!

This book got me hook, line and sinker on the first page. As an adult, I've never read a YA book but OMG this book was great. The characters were all interesting and the words flowed seamlessly together. Lindy made Honor, Christian and Ryder seem like normal teenagers if you could look past the whole UD/UDK thing. I was amazed at the level of writing for this first book in the Anything But Series. I'm super excited and anxious for Unremarkable to come out. I'd also like to say that as an avid reader, I gobble books up but I took my time reading this because I didn't want to miss anything. Lindy, this is a really great book for people of all ages. You have a lot to live up to!!!!
