The Edge of Normal book review

I have just finished reading Carla Norton's The Edge of Normal. Carla Norton is a bestselling true crime author (Perfect Victim: The True Story of the Girl in the Box), and now she has released her debut mystery novel,The Edge of Normal. Already receiving critical raves and coveted “page-turner” status from Oprah.com, Carla’s novel is aSilence of the Lambs for a Gone Girl era, and it’s inspired by real-life kidnapping cases such as Jaycee Dugard and Elizabeth Smart.

This book will have you hooked from the first pages. It has a slow build that unveils layer after layer of the story with each chapter. It is a story of taking personal fear and turning into passionate heroism. 

About The Edge of Normal: Reeve LeClaire looks like a typical 22-year-old girl, but she is anything but normal. Ten years ago, she was kidnapped and held captive for four years. After a lucky escape, she’s been rebuilding her life, thanks in large part to her therapist Dr. Ezra Lerner. When he asks Reeve to help mentor another girl rescued from a similar ordeal, the two bond very quickly. But the more Tilly confides in her, Reeve realizes she may not simply need to support this young survivor, but that she may be the only one who can protect her from a cunning predator who is still out there, watching her every move.
