Waiting on Wednesday (74)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.

On the Fringe
by Courtney King Walker

Release Date:
October 19, 2011

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.

Wow this sounds crazy good. The whole drowning 'on the fringe' thing is so interesting, mysterious, and haunting. Seeing someone familiar underwater though would make me scream for air. The idea alone sends shivers up my spine!
