Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Caggie Caulfield's life changed forever the night her little sister died. How could Caggie be expected to ever return to normal after Hayley's death? But time presses on, and she is now starting a new school year at Kensington Prep. Life amongst Manhattan's posh elite seems emptier than normal as she drifts apart from her BFF Claire and is forced to see ex-boyfriend Trevor in class. No one knows what it's like—or what really happened on the rooftop last spring. When Caggie meets Astor, she feels like she can escape her family, her friends, and herself whenever she spends time with him. If Caggie could just drift through life, maybe she'd never really have to feel anything again or ever tell the truth about what she's really done. Serle explores grief and depression while paying homage toThe Catcher in the Rye (Holden Caulfield is the protagonist's grandfather). The teen is closed to everyone in her life but slowly opens up about what really happened and how she actually feels. The pacing crawls at times, and Caggie is not as compelling as her grandfather when it comes to relatability. Still, the emotional focus and Salinger references may be enough to grab attention. A possible recommendation for fans of Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why (Penguin, 2007) and other books that tackle suicide and depression.—Emily Moore, Camden County Library System, NJ


"A beautiful and surprising story about loss, friendship, and, ultimately, learning to fly."--Leila Sales, author of This Song Will Save Your Life

""The Edge of Falling" is a painful, lovely book . . . Like her heroine, Serle is a clear-eyed observer, and she depicts the inner life of a bruised city girl with intelligence, warmth and, best of all, real compassion."--Gabrielle Zevin "author of Elsewhere and Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac "
