Not So Nor­mal Nor­bert

The Borneo Post - Good English - - Short Story Section - By James Pat­ter­son

Nor­bert Rid­dle lives in the United State of Earth, where nor­mal means fol­low­ing the rules, never stand­ing out, and be­ing ex­actly the same as ev­ery­one else, down to the plain grey jump­suits he wears ev­ery­day. He’s been nor­mal his whole life-un­til a mo­ment of tem­po­rary hi­lar­ity when he does a funny im­pres­sion of their dic­ta­tor, Loving Leader...and gets caught !

Now, Nor­bert’s been ar­rested and ban­ished to planet Zorquat 3 in the Orion Ne­bula, where kids who defy the rules roam free in the Astronuts camp. Nor­bert has been taught his whole life that dif­fer­ent is wrong, but ev­ery­one at Astronuts is crazy, cre­ative, and in­sane !
