    5. I'm a big fan of this author and had high expectations for Crumple Zone. Needless to say, I wasn't disappointed. Lara is such a likeable heroine struggling to find out what she wants from life and from a partner. I love how brave and realistically she's portrayed. Idiotically, Lara dumps true love to take a trip overseas, alone, to where she barely speaks the language. This created a great means to show character growth, as well as a roller coaster ride to include a truly disturbing villain, bef [...]

    7. I just finished reading Crumple Zone. Parzefall is an adept writer, and she draws us through the gamut of human emotion without pausing to let us breathe. Her young, modern heroine is very human, yearning to be a strong, independent woman, yet drawn by the very human urge to mate and the longing to love and be loved. The book sometimes made me laugh, occasionally made me angry, often made me smile, and in the end almost brought me to tears. What more can one ask of a book?Karen Mabry Rice,Author [...]


    8. I have read and loved Edith Parzefall's other works, so couldn't wait to get my hands on _Crumple Zone_. My impatience was warranted, because I loved every word of it. Lara gave me quite a ride in her rented X-Trail while she struggled to rediscover herself after losing her job. I also got to journey with trucker Enrique, who struggled with a feeling that something was wrong but couldn't quite place it. Their parallel journeys gave me a glimpse of beautiful Chile and insight into the human psych [...]


    9. I have read only two of her books but I've become a fan. This novel takes us on a trip to Chile with an American who has recently lost her job. The book takes on her journey and also on one with a Chilean truck driver. Their lives become intertwined and I love the message the book tries to make. It had me checking the internet to find out the interesting places that are mentioned in this novel.
