Claire is struggling to overcome the murder of her childhood friend and secret crush, Daniel. Everyone else seems to be moving on with their lives, but she's still trying to cope. The fact that she finds herself alone and drowning on her 16th birthday isn't helping.
Neither is thinking she sees Daniel's face in murky water as she mysteriously resurfaces. But something happened during those four and a half minutes that will make her realize it was not just her imagination.
As Claire and Daniel try to grasp a possible reconnection, other grudge-holding beings have plans of their own. Now, the two of them have to decide if their fleeting relationship is worth the possibility of Claire being trapped on the fringe forever.
Beautifully told, On the Fringe intertwines fresh ideas about devotion, revenge, and the consequences that come with life and death.
On the Fringe by Courtney King Walker is aptly named and you’ll soon find out why. Ms. Walker gave me a mesmerizing look at first love and the devotion that can come with it even beyond the grave. I enjoyed another ‘ghost’ book! Surprise, surprise! I guess I can wipe that off my ‘I don’t read’ list now as this is the fifth book involving ghosts that I have truly enjoyed.
