The Edge of Normal by Carla Norton

**Warning subject matter may not appeal to everyone**

And honestly it did not appeal to me. I am a champion for strong women that overcome trauma. But the age of Reeve at the time of her abuse was not something I cared to read about. The mind of the abuser was a place I would rather not have spent my time. I understand many find this type of book appealing so I will not be giving out a star rating as my dislike has nothing to do with the writing style or flow of the story. Rather a personal dislike of subject matter.

However many of our visitors to this site may find it a good read. So if you are inclined check it out!

From the cover………
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.
