Faye Martin never expected her husband to abandon her and her three children...or that she’d have to struggle every day to make ends meet. So when her four-year-old daughter is discovered through a YouTube video and offered a starring role on a television series, it seems like her prayers have been answered. But when the reality of their new life settles in, Faye realizes that fame and fortune don’t come without a price. And in a world where everyone is an actor and every move is scrutinized by millions, it’s impossible to know who to trust, and Faye finds herself utterly alone in her struggle to save her family.
Emotionally riveting and insightful, NO ORDINARY LIFE is an unforgettable novel about the preciousness of childhood and the difficult choices a mother needs to make in order to protect this fragile time in her children’s lives.

There are so many things I'd love to talk about that I wish I had read this with the rest of my real life book club. I'd say more, but I'd be delving into spoiler territory. I'll seriously consider this one when its my turn to pick a book.
I seriously love this author's books and wish she could publish one a week!
Wow, just wow! There are books that grab you from the first sentence.
The story line was fast paced and never boring - it kept me flipping pages even when my lunch hour was over! Gasp!
Anyone who wants to know how Hollywood really works should read this novel. Even if that’s not a burning desire for you, it’s a great story with lots of twists and turns, and heartwarming moments. I loved it and I hope you will too!
I enjoyed this emotionally charged and beautifully written novel about the glamour of Hollywood and how it can be an insidiously dangerous place for the vulnerable. A poignant tale of survival, hope, determination and the strength of a mother's love.
Thank You to Suzanne Redfearn for writing a story that will have you staying up way past your bedtime just to find out what happens with Faye and her family!!
Another brilliant novel by Suzanne Redfearn that I would recommend to all.
I'm...I'm grappling for words here. I obviously have no idea what "my type" of book is because I didn't think this was something I'd normally pick up and I COULD NOT put down this novel.
