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. (Goodreads)
After the death of Daniel, a childhood friend and newfound crush, Claire is struggling to find a way to cope and to move on with her life. On her 16th birthday, Claire falls into the lake and while drowning, see’s the face of her beloved Daniel. Now they are connected, and she is able to see him anytime. But what does this mean for Claire? Is she crazy, or is she on the fringe?
The characters in the story were all really likeable. Actually, likeable is probably not the word I’m looking for. I liked them, but I felt so many different emotions for them as well. Everything that Claire and Daniel went through left me with a mix of emotions. I was feeling happy and sad, breathless and shocked, and so much more. I really love having that happen when I’m reading a good story. I found myself to be fascinated by these characters, and the secondary characters as well; I just couldn’t get enough of them.
This book has it all, including action and suspense, romance and drama. The storyline was well done, in my opinion, and definitely kept me guessing as to what would happen next. The pacing was excellent as well. I was so hooked; I finished this book in just a few hours time. I also loved that the author wrote the book in different points of view between Daniel and Claire, it was great seeing both of their points of view.
Overall, I really, really enjoyed this book. I’m not much one that rereads books often, but I already want to read this again. I read it on my Nook, but I am definitely going to be adding a finished copy to my collection, and soon!
