Wishful Wednesday featuring On The Edge by Allison Van Diepen

Wishful Wednesday was inspired by Waiting on Wednesday and Desperately Wanting Wednesday by Breaking the Spine and Parajunkee.

Wishful Wednesday is my own little version of "Waiting On Wednesday". Every week, I'll pick an upcoming book that I'm anticipating the release for and showcase it here on the blog. This week, that book is going to be On The Edge by the talented Allison Van Diepen. I haven't really read anything by Allison Van Diepen, but I've had a copy of Snitch and The Vampire Stalker for a while now and I just haven't had time to get around to reading them. I have heard some pretty good mixed things here and there about them, though. When I came across the synopsis for On The Edge on Goodreads, I knew instantly this was a book that I was going to want to read and badly. 

Murder, getting caught up in street gangs, and a lot of dark mysterious and dangerous mayhem. Who wouldn't want to sink their teeth into a suspenseful mystery thriller like this one.  I hope it's as good as it promises to be, because I'm definitely excited to read this one.

Expected Publication: September 16, 2014
Publisher: HarperCollins
Age Demographic: YA Mystery Romance
Pages: 304

From Allison van Diepen, author of Snitch and Street Pharm, comes a sexy, dangerous novel about a teen who witnesses a murder and gets caught up in the seedy world of Miami’s gangs.

Maddie Diaz never should have taken that shortcut through the park. If she hadn't, she wouldn't have seen two members of the Reyes gang attacking a homeless man. Now, as the only witness, she knows there’s a target on her back.

But when the Reyes jump her on the street, Maddie is protected by a second gang and their secretive leader, Lobo, who is determined to take down the Reyes himself. Lobo is mysterious and passionate, and Maddie begins to fall for him. But when they live this close to the edge, can their love survive?

On the Edge is a compelling story about fighting for what’s right and figuring out where you belong. The novel showcases a gritty, realistic voice and earth–shattering romance that will intrigue readers of Simone Elkeles and Paul Griffin and captivate fans of Allison van Diepen's other novels.
