It started with a bad decision and ended with an obsession.

Seventeen-year-old best friends Beckett Smith and Chloe Baker can’t shake their reputations after taking risqué photos at a college party. The pictures are distributed to the North Lake High School student body sending the best friends to the bottom rung of the social ladder right before senior year. When Beckett and Chloe return to school, they find themselves ill prepared for the harassment and bullying that follows.

Beckett has an easier time being reaccepted than Chloe. And she’ll do anything to be part of her old clique and to get a second chance at a relationship with her ex-boyfriend, star running back Kale Fenton. But Beckett’s attempts at a normal senior year are at odds with Chloe’s increasingly anti-social behavior. As Chloe’s life spirals out of control she becomes obsessed with the Aurora Bridge in Seattle, also known as Suicide Bridge, a place known for the jumpers. And after everyone’s abandoned Chloe, Beckett is the one person who can prevent Chloe from making the jump.

GIRL OVER THE EDGE is a novel about best friends, damaged relationships, and the help that sometimes comes from unexpected places.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

A must read for teenage girls, and an impressive first novel from Amy L. Kinzer. I’m looking forward to more from this writer.

I just loved this book. I couldn’t put this book down and when I had to, I kept wondering what would happen next. I would recommend this book.

*******

Girl Over the Edge is a good story on peer pressure, bullying and how two friends try to overcome it all before they graduate. But what happens along the way may prove to be too much for one of them. Kinzer did a fabulous job and I look forward to more books by her.

*******

I bought this book on my Kindle after reading the “sample”, and I was kept intrigued from the first page to the last. It’s not your ordinary story about teenage life, but the struggle of making ONE wrong choice, and it forever changing your life.

*******

A book that makes you think about YOUR actions and those around you. I think it should be a staple in Freshman HS reading courses. I will be sharing parts of it wtih the students I teach.
