Publisher's Summary

Becca King is on the run. Her ability to hear “whispers” — the thoughts of others — has put her at risk from her stepfather, whose criminal activities she’s discovered. When she arrives on Whidbey Island, beautiful, wild, and a world apart, she embarks on a life very different from her old one, with new friends that include Seth, a kindhearted dropout turned gypsy jazz musician; Derric, a Ugandan boy adopted by a local family; Diana, with whom she shares psychic powers; and Debbie, who makes a habit of helping runaways. Blending strands of mystery and romance and a hint of the paranormal in a haunting setting, The Edge of Nowhere is the first in a cycle of books that will take Becca and her friends through their teenage years on the island.Elizabeth George, author of the bestselling crime novels about Inspector Lynley, brings her prodigious talents to her first book for young adults.

    Story
    "Good mystery set in the Pacific Northwest"

    I spent my summers as a kid on Whidbey Island. This book brought me back to the little artist colony island and had a good mystery to it.

    Story
    "A little too much teen angst for me"

    I decided to listen to this because I love George's Inspector Lynley series and a friend whose opinion I respect recommended it. Perhaps my expectations were too high, or I am just not suited to teenage angst, but I didn't enjoy this as much as I had hoped. I may listen to the followup books, but they won't be high on my list.

    Story
    "Very odd story…."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, one of the oddest books I have read. The story is full of characters doing and making the strangest things. I really hope most people would not behave this way but heck, what do I know????


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Maybe it would have helped if some issues were resolved??? Just my opinion.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    This is the least of its worries.
