The Edge of Nowhere

Elizabeth George, author of seventeen books about Inspector Thomas Lynley, has written a new book for Young Adults.

The Edge of Nowhere takes place on Whidbey Islands (Washington state) as a Becca King tries to establish a new life after running from the whispers that told her that her step-father had murdered his business partner. She comes into contact with kind and cruel classmates and adults, experiences homelessness and helps solve the mystery of athlete Derric's fall in a local forest park. I loved the setting of this book and the subtle level of ESP Becca lives with. There will HAVE to be a sequel if not a trilogy because there is much left unanswered at the end (torture!!)
Find this and other titles for teens and adventurous adults in the Young Adult section at the north end of the main floor (where the Hunger Games series is shelved). ~Ginny
