Editorial Reviews

The Edge of When is the title of the book. The book is a re-edited, re-formatted compilation of three books, previously published separately. It is now one novel in three parts. Age range: 10+. "... just the type of children's literature needed to facilitate discussion of the nuclear threat in classrooms and schools by teachers. We believe children will find the book not only captivating but also stimulating, informative, and encouraging." -Manitoba Educators for Social Responsibility (in reference to "It's Up to Us," the third book in the former series).
