It’s summer vacation, the beach is calling, and 17-year-old over-achiever Alex has unexpectedly found the girl he wants to hang out with. But she turns out to be annoyingly serious about the stupid friend zone thing, and if he wants to spend time with Jill he will have to take a step into her world – one he is not at all sure he wants to be a part of. Years later, when a devastating diagnosis leads him back to that beach, he finds that Jill is there for him in a way no one else can be.
“With a combination of light heartedness and weightiness, this book depicts the joys and complexities of living in relationship—with each other and with God. Alex on the Edge not only provides an engaging, enjoyable story set in South Africa and Lesotho—it will also leave you contemplating what is really important in life.” Kate Motaung, author of A Place to Land“I wish this book had been published 10 years ago, I can’t remember when last I laughed so much. Kate has covered a wide range of human emotions without the narrative ever feeling forced.” Amazon reviewer“The author seamlessly weaves the joys and challenges of living as a modern day Christian through the story without getting preachy.” Amazon reviewer“A refreshing, gracious story that is such a pleasure to read. Highly recommended for any teen or young adult, parent, or older adult who is young at heart.” Amazon UK reviewer
