After his mother dies and his father begins drinking again, Luke decides to leave New York City.  Though he’s just sixteen, he finds a job and friends in fantastic, otherworldly Moab, Utah—the last place his family was happy together.

Back in New York, eighteen-year-old Ava finally admits she has a drinking problem. But life doesn’t automatically get easier when she joins Alcoholics Anonymous.

When circumstances—or fate—bring Ava to Moab as well, she and Luke both must figure out how to heal their families and themselves.

    " Picked this up at a dollar store and was nicely surprised. Unique and with an entire cast of compelling characters. A great YA first novel. "

    " Great story. A young adult novel. Lots of AA language. Narration switches between two characters. Boy - left NY when dad started drinking again after mom killed in car accident. Ended up in Utah at youth hostel. Girl - left for school in NY and became alcoholic. 60 days sober. They connect - her parents run the youth hostel. Neat read. Recommended to Emily Hanson. "

    " I originally started Edges by listening to the audio book which I won through a blog contest. It was initially hard for me to engage but I think that was primarily due to the recording and the voices that read it. About 1/3 of the way through I picked up a written copy and was immediately hooked. The characters were fleshed out nicely and I loved the contrast between the adolescents and the adults as far as their perceptions and reactions to challenges that came while still keeping the all perspectives real and honest. And I have to say, while I've always been intrigued with New York I now have a new desire to visit Moab, Utah! "

    " Edges is a beautiful book. I inhaled it. Then I savored it. I am reading it for the third time since I got it for Christmas. I love how the narratives intertwine. Everyone is connected--thus everyone is important. The characters are too real at times, reminding me of friends in real life. Ava and Luke are just trying to figure out who they are and what they should become. Aren't we all? I love the bold discussion of addiction and recovery. The description isn't trite or too simple. Mostly I love that each character is trying to find a community, a family, a place in the world. Speaking of places--New York City and Moab are so richly described that the places become characters themselves. We all have an AA meeting and a Moonflower Motel in our lives. Places we go to engage with reality and to commune with identity. Critics have questions the use of mysticism in the book--don't be discouraged. The treatment is not heavy handed. It is beautiful--all embroidered into the rich tapestry of the narrative. Cinnamon Sprite and her lucid dreams are some of the richest and brightest parts of the book. Go read it. I loved it! "
