This novel is a twisting turning adventure full of angst, love, curiosity, and suspense. Each and every page pulls the reader deeper and deeper into the minds and worlds of Debra Chapoton's characters. Having read both editions, the paperback and the Kindle edition, I was very pleased with the differences. The Kindle edition is the original story, the manuscript, and the paperback is the final revised edition. Both versions were equally enjoyable yet strikingly different. I would recommend this book to any person, older child and young adult alike who simply likes to read for the sake of reading. I am very happy with my purchase and cannot wait to see what else is created from the mind of this talented author.

Edge of Escape is fast-paced psychological thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Debra Chapoton does a wonderful job of moving back and forth between the past and present lives of the characters so the reader gets an idea of what motivates each of them. Without bogging down the story line, Debra describes each setting enough you can picture yourself at each location. Readers will find themselves cheering or jeering as the situations unfold. One of the best things about this book, in my opinion, is the fact that all of the main characters (heroes and villains) are high school students. It offers a glimpse of what teenagers can do when faced with dire situations. I highly recommend this book to both adults and teens. - Sheila Rae Myers, Author.

Format: Paperback
Edge of Escape will keep you on the edge of your seat. You won't be able to decide whether to boo Edward, or root for him. As the mother of teen daughters myself, I so wanted to see Rebecca escape; at the same time I had so much compassion for Edward that I almost wanted him to win her over. Debra Chapoton has done a fantastic job in getting into the mindset of this disturbed young man, and taking the reader along for the ride.

The story jumps around, from the present, to various points in the past, even a little bit into the future. Instead of distracting the reader from what is currently happening, it completely works by adding layers of richness to the story, answering questions about how Edward came to be and how all of the main characters tie together. Edward's mother will make you want to cry for him, as will his consuming guilt and painful shyness. It isn't easy making the villain so completely sympathetic and evil all at once, yet Debra Chapoton does just that.

Warning: Once you begin this book, you won't be able to put it down, so plan on settling in for the long haul. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who likes a good, thrilling, nail-biting, well-written, addictive story that will make you question what you think you know is right and wrong.

Review:
Edge of Escape is a dark novel that will keep you turning the pages.
I had a mixed feeling about Eddie. I couldn't help but feel bad for him. At the same time , there were times when he creeped me out.

The plot moves at a fast pace with something happening in very chapter. I wanted Rebecca to escape , at the same time I wanted her to understand Eddie's feelings.

The story's transition between the past and the present is smooth and adds to make the story more compelling. The ending is heart-breaking.
Edge of Escape is a well-written thriller with a fantastic plot. Its totally worth a read.

Overall:
Intriguing and well-written
