The first review for ON THE EDGE has just come in and I'm glad to say it's a really good one - and made even better because it's from Julia Eccleshare who is probably the most distinguished  children's book reviewer in the UK. It is on the Lovereading4kids site -

Interest Age Teen, Reading Age 8+ Brilliantly told, this is a deeply moving story and scarily credible contemporary story. Dillon and Robbie’s dad has been banned from contacting them so, when he rings up out of the blue and say he’s on his way over to pick them up, Dillon is immediately suspicious. But Robbie is keen to go and Dad says Mum’s agreed to the plan. But Dad is out of control and soon Dillon and Robbie find themselves in the middle of a very dangerous situation. Nigel Hinton captures the love and fear the two boys feel for their dangerous Dad in this thrilling adventure.
