"Maddie and Ivan are both likeable, well-developed characters with a strong sense of self and purpose. Their lifelong platonic friendship, devoid of stereotypical sexual tension, is refreshing, and the intergenerational family dynamics are recognizable and realistic. The conflicting forces of tension and devotion in the teenagers' relationships with their dads is palpable...At the Edge of the World will have readers reflecting upon their own parent-child relationships, obligations, and expectations with renewed perspective."--Quill & Quire
