Sherry Cracker gets normal / D.J. Connell. - London : Blue Door, 2011. - 262 pages ; 24 cm.

Meet Sherry Cracker: loner, obsessive note-taker and lover of tartan trousers. She works for thrifty, straight-talking Mr. Chin who runs a business buying used gold from dentists. One Friday afternoon, Mr. Chin informs Sherry that she's abnormal. He then uncharacteristically gives her GBP100 and a weekend in which to 'crack the normality nut'. But something is going on in the town where unemployment is high and the streets bristle with CCTV cameras. The corrupt council has cut budgets and the library has been closed. Mysterious graffiti is appearing everywhere. People are disgruntled and restless. Sherry is joined on her quest by a runaway known as the 'Little Bastard' and Jocelyn de Foiegras, gentleman alcoholic, and his Chihuahua, Herb Alpert. Through their friendship she learns that she's looking for normality in all the wrong places and uncovers a plot which threatens her future with Mr Chin.
