    One thought on “No Ordinary Life”

    1. No Ordinary Life is Suzanne Redfearn's second novel. I read her first book Hush Little Baby a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. So I was very excited to read her newest novel! This was such a great book. I had high hopes and they were surpassed. After Faye Martin's husband, Sean leaves on a road trip and doesn't come back, Faye quickly realizes it's up to her to support herself and her three children. She makes the decision to move her family in with her mother to try to get them back o [...]

Then she (Molly) gets a GAP commercial and America wants more of this cute little girl.Molly then is up for a part in the number one TV show "The Foster Family."She gets the part and the family is ch [...]

    3. This was an unexpectedly good book. I say this because I didn't know quite what to expect, child superstar, a novel on a kind of similar life to child stars in Hollywood. We have Faye, a mom to three beautiful children one of them being little Molly her 4 year old daughter.Faye finds herself bringing up her children on her own as her husband ran off.

    4. “Do not yearn to be popular; be exquisite. Do not desire to be famous; be loved. Do not take pride in being expected; be palpable, unmistakable.”----C. JoyBell C.Suzanne Redfearn, an American author, pens a heart-wrenching family story, No Ordinary Life that deals with the life of a woman with three young children, left abandoned by her husband, who is finding it difficult to make the ends of daily life meet with no constant flow of finance. But one day, luck shines upon her family when her [...]

    5. 3.5 stars No Ordinary Life is an interesting look at what happens in the lives of a young separated mother and her children when one of them becomes an unexpected child star sensation. Faye is down on her luck, her husband is a trucker who has fled to another woman five months earlier and her middle child, Tom, has anxiety disorder which causes him to become mute anywhere except home. With Social Services on her tail, she relocates to live with her mom in LA. Molly, the four year old, a charming [...]

    6. I seriously love this author's books and wish she could publish one a week! Her first novel, HUSH LITTLE BABY, was fantastic, and this advanced copy (comes out Feb. 2016) didn't disappoint me - another great book by Suzanne. It really made me think about actor's lives, esp. child actors, and the peaks and pain of being famous. She did a lot of research and it paid off. Great read!

    7. Fay Martin's husband leaves to go on a road trip but does not return and abandons Fay and her three children,one who is autistic. Fay is struggling with a low paid job, trying to keep the bills paid and her children fed. Soon things are so tough that Fay moves in with her mother in Los Angeles. Fay's daughter Molly does an online ad and after this success Hollywood comes calling. Fay thinks this is her way out but soon learns that this is a hard and brutal industry, not all glamour and bright li [...]

    8. A special thank you to Grand Central and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Suzanne Redfearn returns following the compelling Hush Little Baby, with her latest, NO ORDINARY LIFE---a riveting domestic suspense of one single mother’s desperate struggle for survival; a twisted disturbing obsessive fan, and the ultimate cost of fame and fortune. Torn between their lives before and after stardom. The trials and tribulations; greed, damage, regret, guilt - surviving the Hollywood [...]

    9. When I was younger, all I ever wanted to be was an actress on tv. As I got older I still wanted it, but it just wasn't my personality to be center of attention. So instead, I daydreamed about it and created a whole fictional world just for me. Well, none of my daydreaming could ever have come close to what working in the entertainment business is truly like. It's not as glamorous as one may think; its long, at times boring, and privacy is a word that has no meaning. What we, as normal everyday l [...]

    10. I must have had No Ordinary Life sitting on my Kindle a while, but it was brought back to my attention when the books publicist emailed asking if I was planning to review, I then made it my immediate priority, because it sounded amazing and I'd remembered all over again why I had requested it in the first place.No Ordinary Life is SUCH an on-point novel. Kids acting, and kids becoming superstars, is something always in the news. You see adults who used to be child stars messing up their lives le [...]

    11. Neither I or any of my family has ever worked in the entertainment industry, so much of what was in this book was new to me. I had assumed that world to be cutthroat, but never did I imagine how rabid it is! But it was a fascinating world to a person like me and I admit to devouring every page! First, the story. Needless to say, I was hooked! It's a rags to riches Hollywood story about a child who, through a YouTube video, becomes an overnight sensation. This child, Molly along with the rest of [...]

    12. More like 1.5Faye was ditzy and wishy washy and just a simpering idiot 85% of the time. I don't know how many times she said "My kids are first" and then turned around and damn near threw them under the bus for one stupid reason or another. Still, this would have been rated a star higher if it wasn't for the oh-so-fucking annoying way Redfearn wrote Molly's dialog. "She had an adorable lisp" would give us the picture, not inserting an unnecessary W into every other word the girl spoke.

    13. Another 5 star read from Suzanne Redfearn. Very fortunate to have received an advance copy. No Ordinary Life is different from her first novel, Hush Little Baby, but will again have you turning the pages.

    14. Faye is now a single mother - the eldest is at the dangerous age of thinking she knows it all, her mother is old hat and that she is very much a woman of the world (very tricky stage that!), the boy is very sweet, family conscious but with a condition which prevents him talking when he is with outsiders - he is perfectly normal with family members, and then you get the littlest four year old, cute as a button and around whom the story revolves.Scouted out for a commercial and then going on to gr [...]

    15. This was an EXCELLENT book! I don't give out 5 stars very often but I couldn't put this book down! I started last night & read all thru the night!! Wish this author had more books. I read her previous book so this was a must & I was not disappointed. I was a little hesitant because it was about a child YouTube star but that quickly disapates (?) & I'm hooked from the very beginning!

    16. A good read that you can gobble up over a weekend. Look forward to reading more from this author.

    17. A very entertaining book on Hollywood life and the making of a child star. I was frustrated at times on the decisions the mother made concerning her children but I can only imagine what it must be like being in the limelight of fame. Disliked the ending but maybe one has to do whatever it takes to survive in the glamorous world of television entertainment in LA This is a rags to riches story with happiness and heartache, a mom who only wants the best for her children, and a missing husband who r [...]

    18. I will tell you that if you are looking for a book that you will fly though, this is your pick. And for me to say that about a book with about 400 pages is really something. I was engaged and hooked from page one because I really identified with Faye. She's got three children, her moron husband has seemingly picked up and left and doesn't seem like he's ever going to return. She works a dead end, low-paying job, she has a teenager being a teenager, a son who has "selective mutism" and she can't [...]

    19. "No Ordinary Life" is the story of Faye Martin and her children. When her youngest, Molly, is discovered one day right after they move to Los Angeles, the whole family's world is turned upside down. At first, Faye can't believe her fortune but she is faced with a slew of new problems that she could once only imagine. This is the story of one woman trying to hold her family together when their world is turned upside down. Hollywood glamour isn't always glamorous!The Hollywood life is definitely n [...]

    20. This story was an entertaining read while giving amazing insight into the world of Hollywood behind the glitz and glamour. It is the story of an ordinary woman whose child is swept up into superstardom, and what that kind of fame does to her family. As a parent, it gave me chills to think what it would be like to be on that runaway train. The author did a great job making you understand the dark trappings of celebrity, and I found myself carried along through the pages and utterly lost in the mo [...]

    21. What if this was you? What if your child was suddenly discovered as a star? How would you react? How would you allow things to go on and not be able to have a say? Wow. This book asks all that as it tells the story of what a mother does when her young child(ren) are discovered as young actors. Such a great story. Faye is my hero.

    22. No Ordinary Life by Suzanne Redfearn took hold of my heart and ran with it! I feel so lucky to have received an ARC of this gem. Suzanne's characters are unforgettable and come to life right off the pages. You know you have a great read when you are up reading a book until the middle of the night. I can't wait for her next one!

    23. Se já tinha gostado de O Fim do Silêncio, O Preço da Fama superou largamente as minhas expectativas. Capítulos curtos, cheios de "energia" e uma escrita bastante apelativa que, comparada com a de alguns policiais, é muito mais interessante. A temática é bastante pertinente uma vez que se debruça sobre a exposição mediática de crianças de tenra idade e respectivas consequências. Junte-se a isso um casal "separado" e a exploração do filão pelo progenitor ausente e temos uma obra qu [...]

    24. Thank You to Grand Central Publishing for providing me with an advanced copy of Suzanne Redfearn's novel, No Ordinary Life, in exchange for an honest review.

Every trial faced seemed plausible and added multilayers to the narrative.Characterization ruled this story. Faye, Molly, Chris along with the entire ensemble drove the narrative. A motley of personalities, motives, positions created an array of entertainment supporting the subject matter.I was conflicted over Faye. I felt for her si [...]

    27. Thank you to NetGalley and to the publisher for the ARC of this novel in exchange for my honest review.Growing up in Los Angeles, I had friends in the “business” but that was before the rise of the internet and social media, so what I knew then doesn’t seem to apply anymore.

    28. Wow, just wow! There are books that grab you from the first sentence:"Molly and I sit outside the principal's office, eyes staring at my hands in my lap like a defendant awaiting a verdict." (page 1, No Ordinary Life)From the first sentence in this book to the very end the words hold on the tight and keep the reader glued to the book!

    29. I received a review copyWow. This book was like a watching a train wreck. But I truly mean that in the best way, given that my Kindle was glued to my hand the entire time I was reading. Redfearn writes with the ability to suck readers in and keep them in a hold until we are at the end, and even then, the characters and their stories stay on the mind. There were unbelievable moments, touching moments, infuriating scenes and oh-my-word-i-don’t-think-I’m-breathing scenes. The celebrity world is [...]
