Goodreads:  In many ways, Reeve LeClaire looks like a typical twenty-two year old girl. She’s finally landed her own apartment, she waitresses to pay the bills, and she wishes she wasn’t so nervous around new people. She thinks of herself as agile, not skittish. As serious, not grim. But Reeve is anything but normal.

Ten years ago, she was kidnapped and held captive. After a lucky escape, she’s spent the last six years trying to rebuild her life, a recovery thanks in large part to her indispensable therapist Dr. Ezra Lerner. But when he asks her to help another girl rescued from a similar situation, Reeve realizes she may not simply need to mentor this young victim—she may be the only one who can protect her from a cunning predator who is still out there, watching every move.

From the author of the #1 non-fiction bestseller Perfect Victim: The True Story of the Girl in the Box comes a novel that draws you into a chilling and engrossing world. With powerfully gripping characters and an ending that is a masterpiece of deception, Carla Norton’s The Edge of Normal is a stunning debut thriller.

Ope’s Opinion:  When you read this book, do not forget to breath!  This book is so intense you will loose track of time.  

I would have thought being introduced to the antagonist so early in the story that it would take the suspense away.  It actually worked in the opposite way.  Seeing all the points of view made the story move very quickly.

I think this book needs to be made into a movie.  The writing was so detailed I could see each scene and character.

I would have given this book five stars if it had stopped about 30 pages earlier.

I am ready to read another book by Carla Norton.  She can keep me up late at night any time.

Rating:  Four Chairs – I like this book so much I know several friends to share it with.
