What draws me to a book and keeps me going are the moments that stop me in my tracks. Much like in real life when something grabs my attention and jolts me from the stories playing in my head, something understood better with the senses than the mind. Further out Than You Thought offers up a generous dose of such moments. Gwen, the protagonist takes us on an inner journey as she navigates a life unraveling under the glare of a city on fire. Lyrical, intense and sensual this book delivers on all levels. I looked forward to reading this book every night, I looked forward to the moments when I would put it down, take a deep breath and let my mind linger over a startling line of prose.

This was a new genre for me, not something I would have picked off the shelf in the bookstore but was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the story and how wonderfully written it was. I didn't know exactly where this story was going and it just pulled me along on the journey that the main character was going on. Carter writes scenes that are rich, visual, and full of feeling. In one word...impressive.

Ms Carter's first novel is a beautifully written expose of three young adults during a vulnerable and pivotal time in their lives.  It was a page turner for me, I couldn't get enough. Her exquisite use of language flowed effortlessly throughout the story. I highly recommend this heart wrenching, beautiful, funny and sensuous story seen through a young women's eyes. It has it all!
