he explored ways to make young people into life long readers. In that vein, he would have loved " Edgeland" . Edgeland is filled with drama and suspense, philosophical religious questions and explorations of friendship and loyalty. Today, one might even say it reminds us that, "fake news" challenges us across time and place. And like many good reads it can span beyond the young reader, as a nearly 70 year old, I could not put it down. Bravo, Jake and Peter.
