Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in the west of Ireland, but the similarities end there. In School Connell is popular and well liked, while Marianne ia loner.
But when the two strike up a conversation, it's awkward but its electrifying and something life changing begins.
Normal People is a story of mutual fascination, friendship and love. It takes us from that first conversation to the years beyond, in the company of two vey different people who try to stay apart but find they can't.
