When Jake wakes up, he expects the day to be just like every other day, ordinary. So when Jake heads to school for one of his last days of college, little does he know that his whole life is about to be turned upside down.
When his best friend (and crush) Olivia asks him to help her get out of a dangerous situation, he is determined to help her and finally share the feelings he has been hiding. But he doesn't realize the danger she is in. After being chased by dangerous people, almost being blown up, and being face to face with the barrel of a gun, he is realizing it might not be so easy to share how he feels.
With the help of his friends, can Jake help save Olivia and finally make his feelings known? Or are they in over their heads? What Jake does know is that his life will never be ordinary again.

Anything But Ordinary is a good read with lots of action, likeable characters and a romantic sub-plot. A week before graduation, Jake still hasn't confessed his feelings to his three-year long infatuation, Olivia. When he discovers she is in big trouble with a drug gang, he plunges head-on into the action to save her.
The action is fast-paced and KodyThomas keeps the readers on their toes with explosions, guns and gang killings. There are minor proofreading slips but the story is structurally sound. Certainly a good choice for the young adult readers.

This was totally good. I loved it so much I couldn't put it down. I ended up reading it almost to the end before time caught up with me. But I've finally finished reading it. And I applaud you on writing such a wonderful story. Not even the few grammar errors was enough for me to stop reading.
