Publisher's Summary

From the author of We Are the Ants and The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley comes the heartbreaking story of a boy who believes the universe is slowly shrinking as things he remembers are being erased from others' memories.

Tommy and Ozzie have been best friends since the second grade, and boyfriends since eighth. They spent countless days dreaming of escaping their small town - and then Tommy vanished.

More accurately, he ceased to exist, erased from the minds and memories of everyone who knew him. Everyone except Ozzie.

Ozzie doesn't know how to navigate life without Tommy, and soon he suspects that something else is going on: that the universe is shrinking.

When Ozzie is paired up with new student Calvin on a physics project, he begins to wonder if Calvin could somehow be involved. But the more time they spend together, the harder it is for him to deny the feelings developing between them, even if he still loves Tommy.

But Ozzie knows there isn't much time left to find Tommy - that once the door closes, it can't be opened again. And he's determined to keep it open as long as it takes to get his boyfriend back.

Wow. Quirky little book that kept me guessing

I hate cookie cutter books and this is sure not one of them. A unique tale... Sort of a coming of age story of Ozzie in his senior year. I was captivated by his life, his loves, and his friends. And what the heck happened to Tommy? I sure wanted to find out. Great story, superb narrating.

hear me out

I give 5 stars to books that are amazing with great endings. 4 stars to books that are good with a decent ending. I'm giving this book 3 stars cause it was a good book but with a very unsatisfying ending that left more to he desired and raised more questions than answered. I do recommend reading/listening to this book as it is an interesting read.

Depressing

At the Edge of the Universe is a well written book but I found it depressing.
