Get chills with The Edge of Nowhere
Becca King is a girl with many secrets. For one, she can hear peoples’ thoughts—she calls them “whispers.” One day, she hears one of her stepfathers’ whispers, which reveals to Becca that he’s plotting murder.
As soon as you can say “bye-bye, Facebook,” Becca finds herself abandoned on a remote island off the coast of Washington that’s filled with strangers, who all have their share of secrets, too.
One of these mysterious secret-keepers is Derric, a Ugandan orphan taken in by a local family, with whom Becca creates a close bond. They seem to be the only people who can help each other with their troubles. But while Becca awaits her mother’s return with news of a new home—one far away from her stepfather—Derric falls into a coma.
A police investigation ensues, but there is little hope of finding out who put him into the coma. Did the criminal attack Derric because of his secret? Will Becca be able to listen to the whispers and help solve the case?
