More Than A Feeling

When a medical mystery leaves Kim the only living person without the sense of touch or pain, she learns to live in a world she can’t physically feel. Kim forms a special friendship with University of Chicago scientist Peggy Mason, who vows to find out what caused the condition and understand all things Kim. Their investigation together takes them everywhere from high-tech medical research labs to foreign countries.
And something we all share may be the very reason Kim not only survived – but thrived.
