The Edge of Normal by Carla Norton

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.

Another great thriller! This book is about Reeve who was kidnapped at age twelve and held captive for four years before she was rescued. Now at twenty-two years old, she is barely healing psychologically when she is asked to speak to another girl who was also recently rescued. As she offers moral support to the girl and her family, Reeve is drawn to the clues about the real identity of the kidnapper. 

The author did a great job of making the story flow perfectly with the surprises popping up right up to the end. It’s such a well written book that I am definitely going back and checking out the author’s other books.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
