Neener from bunco got up on her soap box, rang her cow bell, and said that everyone, absolutely everyone, should sit down and read One Door Away From Heaven by Dean Koontz. That it's the kind of book, once you finish it, that makes you sit down on the couch and think "What am I going to do with the rest of my life?"
So of course, I read it. I really enjoyed it. It is more suspenseful than the books I usually choose. Which is good and bad for my poor little heart. Here's the part where I also tell you that I am kind of a weeny. A weeny in the "I only watch scary movies with the lights on" kind of way. I had to make sure that I didn't read this book too close to bedtime or it would keep my mind awake all night.
It is the story of a young, physically handicapped girl and her life with a mercy-killing stepfather. He is on a mission to prove that extraterrestials exist and get Leilani Klonk cured of her physical ailments. Except Leilani is pretty sure she is destined to wind up in a shallow grave in the woods along side her currently alien abducted brother.
