An awesome story with memorable characters. The unbelievable story unfolds with believable beauty ... you will believe a man can glimmer and fly. I love the contemporary dialogue and the pop-culture references. Zoe and her friends are courageous and funny. Very credible caving description.
I could not put this book down. When I started it, I was expecting a murder mystery, not expecting to meet a supernatural entity. The book was completely engrossing, and the smallest details turned out to be foreshadows by the end. An entire world (or underworld) opened up as the pages turned. Zoe, her brother, Jonah and their mom become caught up in something much larger than the state of Montana where the book is set. I cannot praise this story too highly. It would make an incredible movie!
I like to start off by saying that I enjoyed it the ride. It's hard to describe how I feel about it, So typical but also new at the same time i'm not sure if that makes sense. But I must certainly like the book.
I began reading this book with no expectations or ideas and yet it quickly consumed me. I quickly became utterly intrigued and could only hope that it wouldn’t dissipate into disappointment. It didn’t. Somehow this has become one of my favorite books that I’ve read this year. I honestly have no words to accurately describe why I love this book, I just…do. Just…something about the overall feel of this book embraced me. My eyes remained trained on the page and even when they weren’t my brain whirred with the story. It was weird, fascinating, hopeful, dismal, dramatic, stubborn, impossible, familiar, addicting, unfair…
Full of grief and love, of sin and mercy, THE EDGE OF EVERYTHING tears apart the wall between worlds and unfurls a most remarkable love story.

The Edge of Everything is a gripping, exciting, can't-put-down book, one that had my attention from the first page. Zoe used to be a normal teenage girl, at least until her father died in a caving accident. This one event turned her world upside down and inside out and taught Zoe how to deal with loss, a family that's on the verge of falling apart, and love. The Edge of Everything was hilariously sarcastic, and at times tear-jerkingly romantic (especially after we meet X, a soul-claiming bounty hunter from the Lowlands). It's a story about sacrifice, and love, and perseverance. Readers will fall in love with Zoe and X as they fight to stay together, even when two worlds are trying to tear them apart. Sophie, 8th grade
