Winifred and Bernie have been friends for four years. They are the kind of people who never want to be ordinary, always going above and beyond what is expected. One day, Bernie's mom dies, and his whole life now means nothing. Winifred has high expectations, and if Bernie doesn't fit in with them, then oh well. She leaves for college over in California, and Bernie realizes he must get her back, He leaves for California immediately.


Anything but Ordinary was a delightful book with many surprises. It was unconventional in parts, but it did show emotion throughout the whole book. The plot wasn't the best. It didn't always make sense, but it made sense in the end. Hobbs' characters were extraordinary. They were multi- faceted and did things actual teenagers would do. The beginning and middle of the book were pretty slow, but it picked up as it went along. The way the viewpoint of the book switched around was confusing. It went from person to person and you didn't always realize the viewpoint changed.
