Perfect for reading while traveling, M. E. Kerr’s collection of short stories, Edge, includes 15 unique stories that provide new perspectives, express deep emotions, and are a new kind of creative. This collection contains stories about every aspect of growing up. Everything from letting go of your past and forgiving people, to coming out and being yourself. Some of the stories in this collection were interesting and gave me new perspectives. But others, not so much.
I enjoyed stories such as “The Sweet Perfume of Goodbye” and “Do You Want My Opinion?” They turned what we consider normal in this world to something seen as odd. For example, in “Do You Want My Opinion?” intimacy is considered normal and voicing your opinion is considered odd. Although I really enjoyed these stories, the others didn’t appeal to me as much. They were a little conventional and uniform.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and would reccommend it to teen readers.
