Publisher's Summary

A missing teenage boy. Three friends who know what happened. A secret they swear never to tell. Until the secret comes back to haunt them...30 years later.

Jack, Matt, Cassie, and Lisa are four friends growing up on “The Edge”, a cul-de-sac in the 80s. The alpha male, the lucky one, the goody-two shoes, and the glamorous hottie that all the boys want. 

On the outside, they seem to have it all. Yet inside, the teens are shattered in pieces. It is their unbreakable friendship with each other that prevents them from falling apart. Until the one night when tragedy is set forth into motion by their actions, leaving one of the four dead and missing. 

The remaining three swear to never speak of that night again...or to each other. They go their separate ways, hoping to bury their mistakes and the past.

Thirty years later, one of the friends gets an ominous message. Someone is digging into their past and threatening to expose their secret. Who is it and what do they really want? Is their secret the only thing that isn’t safe, or are their lives in danger, too?

Great suspenseful mystery that will shock you

This was such a good suspenseful mystery. It starts with a group of friend who lived together on a street they called The Edge. They are all different but are friends since they are neighbors. One summer night their lives changed drastically. They all held onto a secret and went their separate ways. But they were forever connected. But now they are called back together as adults because someone else knows their secret. The story goes through their lives then and now. We slowly learn about them and the author gives us clues onto to what happened. When the truth of it all was revealed I was blown away. I was totally fooled on what I thought the truth was! I couldn't put this book down. I was listening every chance I had. I needed to know what happened and what was going to happen. This narrator did a great job. His voice really added the suspense to this story. I can't suggest this enough to mystery and suspense fans. Really anyone who loves a good story that is full of surprises will enjoy this story. It's a must read/listen! I definitely will be checking out more from this author.

Ok for young adults

Nothing exciting, thrilling or literarily noteworthy. Except for language and sexual content, 13 y/o " might" find it a 3 star.

Great listen

I really enjoyed this book. The story kept me guessing and I felt for what the kids went through. It is so true that our lives don't turn out the way we think it will when we are in high school. Enjoyed the narrator as well.

What a twist!!!

The book started out slow but did speed up. Narrator did an excellent job and the storyline is great! I won’t give it away but I will say this, pay very close attention or else you’ll miss the obvious!! I will definitely be listening to this book again!

Great Story

This book was given to me for free at my request and I am providing this review voluntarily.

Narrator has a good voice for sure & did only a few miss pronouncing of words most likely due to edits in the book. I think his voice would be better fit for scifi, true crime, history or detective genres. I for sure would purchase another genre with this narrator.

The story is really good. I love the characters development, making it easy to understand each of them & their relationship with one another. How all their lives were effected by the thing that happened to them as children. (No spoilers here). Their different lives and dysfunctional family lives too. I myself could relate to Casey & Jack a lot!
The ending was perfect as well, fitting for sure. I normally figure out things before it's even told, but this story has some twists, don't be so sure!!

I DO recommend this book. If you want a story with a twist, love, forgiveness, & past that changes their future, but it's NOT what you think. (Wink wink)

This was a good book .it was well thought out and the characters were believable, the narrator was ok but could’ve been more expressive, apart from that I thought it was a really good read .

Never tell anyone.

Four teenagers, three of them friends since childhood before a glamorous 13 years old girl from New York joined the group, spent most of their free time together.for two or so years before tragedy struck and one died. The surviving boy and two girls make a pact never to speak of that day to anyone, not even each other. Each go separate ways until, thirty years later, one of them suddenly receives a message that shows someone else knew the secret they'd been hiding. But who? And why had this person only now revealed the knowledge, and what did this person intend?

Whilst the story initially promised a tantalizing mystery, it was written in a bland prose form both colorless and irritating in construction, alternating short chapters between present day happenings and the events leading up to the incident in 1989. A profile of each of the four youngstsrs is given, enough to make all four appear fairly unpleasant without really giving character to any. The final revelation of what happened was long drawn out and tedious, proving ultimately unsatisfying and with too many loose ends left despite an epilogue. The narration, however, was good, lifting the book itself to some extent. Chris Koprowski has a pleasant voice, well modulated, with some definition in separate voices for different protagonists but occasional words were mispronounced and there was a tendency not to leave even a brief gap between chapters which was slightly confusing.

I received this book, Friends from the Edge, at my request as a complimentary download from Audiobook Unleashed. My thanks to the rights holder for making it freely available to all at the click of a button. Sadly, however, and despite an intriguing beginning, the time spent on it was wasted, a promise never fulfilled.
