Talk about an original story—this is a debut novel unlike any other. What does it mean to be normal? This is the story of two odd children who grew up and fell in love, the way they fit and the way they fell apart, how he became an astronaut lost in space, and she became the perfect wife whose "perfect" wasn't real. We literally travel between the infinite boundaries of outer space and the confines of the human heart. I was taken not just by the uniqueness of this story’s creative plot, but by the deeper themes it revealed—and the surprising reach we each travel in order to be understood.
