Edge of Escape will keep you on the edge of your seat. You won't be able to decide whether to boo Edward, or root for him. As the mother of teen daughters myself, I so wanted to see Rebecca escape; at the same time I had so much compassion for Edward that I almost wanted him to win her over. Debra Chapoton has done a fantastic job in getting into the mindset of this disturbed young man, and taking the reader along for the ride. The story jumps around, from the present, to various points in the past, even a little bit into the future. Instead of distracting the reader from what is currently happening, it completely works by adding layers of richness to the story, answering questions about how Edward came to be and how all of the main characters tie together. Edward's mother will make you want to cry for him, as will his consuming guilt and painful shyness. It isn't easy making the villain so completely sympathetic and evil all at once, yet Debra Chapoton does just that. Warning: Once you begin this book, you won't be able to put it down, so plan on settling in for the long haul. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who likes a good, thrilling, nail-biting, well-written, addictive story that will make you question what you think you know is right and wrong.
