Written in simple language with deep insight, this book reads like something by Ken Keesey. Tom Brown is a somewhat introspective computer nerd who starts to question his reality when his life takes one unlikely turn after another. This is the story of how an entirely sane guy applies perfect logic to arrive at a mad solution. And when he takes the most final and drastic of actions, not only can you can understand how he got there, somehow it makes perfect sense.

Karen Jones grew up in rural Indiana on a small family farm. Her father worked construction all his life and her mother was a writer. The last born in a family of seven, Karen wore too many hand-me-downs and heard “grown-up” conversations long before she should have.
