    • Abstract:
      Summary: "It's the morning of Maisie's tenth birthday, and she can't wait to open her presents. Maisie is not a typical kid. What she wants most for her birthday are the things she needs to build her own nuclear reactor. But she wakes to an empty house, and outside the front door is nothing but an unsettling, all-consuming blackness--a shifted reality. Even for super-smart Maisie, these puzzling circumstances seem out of her control... or are they?"--Page [2] of cover.

Booklist Reviews 2019 April #1

It's the morning of Maisie Day's tenth birthday; the sun is bright (or is it even shining?), and she is excited. Maybe now her parents will allow her to go to the store alone. But the house is eerily quiet, and her family nowhere in sight. As Maisie opens the patio doors, a strange blackness creeps into her house. With the blackness comes nothingness. Maisie, extremely bright in chemistry, physics, and math, no longer attends school. She is already working on a bachelor's degree in science with a tutor, academically putting her far beyond her jealous 15-year-old sister, who is struggling with her A-levels for university. However, Maisie doesn't have any friends her age, unlike her popular sister. In a creepy blend of reality, concepts of an infinite universe, and black holes, Edge's mystery alternates chapters—one in real time, one not—always interspersing facts and theories about infinite time and space into each. What's real, and what's not? Even with appended science notes, this mystery will leave readers pondering Maisie's ultimate fate and what lies beyond this world. Grades 4-8.
