Praise

“For beginner sci-fi readers or any child interested in aliens and space flight.” —
School Library Journal

“Nimbly intertwines science, math, and fiction. Fiction entertainingly edges out science . . . in a fantastical finale. —Publishers Weekly

“Jamie’s first-person narrative will draw readers into the story and surprise them with twists along the way as its space-age realism bends toward science fiction.” —Booklist

“Thrilling, smart and surprisingly poignant . . . will leave young readers with a hunger to know more about the universe and our planet’s place in it.” —BookPage

“Edge balances the eerie and the emotional to offer accessible science fiction even when the science itself is inexplicable.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Packed with astrophysics, emotion and invention on a galactic scale, this is science fiction at its most moving and exciting.” —The Guardian (UK)

“Edge has found the equation that solves the problem of how to write a fun, intellectually challenging novel with an emotional center.” —The Times (UK)
