Laurel Osterkamp is a captivating author. She digs deep and nails it. The self-doubt and self-analysis of the main character made my head spin. All this agony eventually led to self-discovery and forgiveness. The people closest to you can and do hurt you the deepest. A little bit of psychic itching always helps.
My first comment: OMG, I'm so hungry! The food...I want some of that food! My second: wow, some strong, open-minded women. I like that. The Contact Project: very, very interesting. Reading about it actually made me shiver. "Too Near The Edge", is a great read but it could have been longer.
