The strength of this young adult book lies in the pacing and character development. None of the people and none of their stories are predictable and you relate in some fashion to each of them--even the bad guy.

I would recommend this for teens (both male and female), for parents, and for teachers. There's a lot to pay attention to in J.E. MacLeod's book.

I too very much enjoyed this book -- I think Zach is not only a very sympathetic MC, but the supporting characters are real (and I love how we get a good look at each of them, so we have greater understanding of why they act as they do) -- I'd recommend it to any teen (and their parents, hehe).

How sweet are you two ladies!!!

I'm still waiting to get my hands on SLIDING ON THE EDGE, but have heard nothing but good things about it. And I am a FAN of Robin's books. Expect to see her on the shelves someday!!!!
