I'm not typically a reader who will pick up a novel about gang violence, but the comparison to Simone Elkeles made me linger over this one until I decided to give it a chance. Luckily, my gamble paid off and On The Edge joins my other 2014 favorites.
Maddie Diaz has lived in Miami all of her life; she knows about the violence and gangs that lurk within her city, but they have never directly touched her life. One fateful night will turn Maddie's world upside down and thrust her smack in the middle of Miami's dangerous underground.
