[Book Review] What Doesn't Kill Her by Carla Norton
Andrea reviews WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER by Carla Norton, (Minotaur Books, 2015)
Still emotionally drained and haunted by her years held captive in Daryl Wayne Flint’s basement, Reeve LeClaire is trying to get away from her persona of “Edgy Reggie.” She has moved away from Washington State to attend Berkeley University in San Francisco. She has made friends with a group of bicyclists, does well in her college classes, and is able to sleep at night knowing Flint is locked up.
Until the fateful day, he isn’t. After careful deliberation and planning with people on the outside, Flint kills the prison barber and manages to escape. Reeve and former FBI agent Milo Bender are obviously the most agitated about Flint. Knowing Flint will attempt to strike again during the upcoming week of Halloween, the two must act quickly.
Ms. Norton takes her readers on another roller coaster ride as she alternates between Reeve and Flint’s points of view. If you as a reader are ready to sacrifice sleep because you want to see what happens next, this is more than likely what you want to read next!
