Have you ever had a big problem? These kids have big problems. Sam's mom was just diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Sam feels helpless and overwhelmed. Oliver's grandmother died two months ago. She was his best friend and the only person who understood his anxiety. Margaret is a dancer with an eating disorder. Her dad left when she was a baby-it still hurts. Joel sees strange things he can't explain. Some people think he has a mental illness but he's not convinced. Sam, Oliver, Margaret, and Joel just want to feel loved and accepted. They just want to feel Normal. But the more time passes, the more their problems are ruining their lives. Will they always feel this lonely and confused?
