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.

Synopsis

On the Edge by Nigel Hinton

When Dillon's dad turns up unannounced to take him and his brother on a trip, Dillon isn't sure what to do - Mum's at work and they haven't seen Dad in months. Dillon's little brother Robbie is ecstatic to see his father and desperate to go. But something's not right. Why won't Dad let them use their phones? And why are their faces plastered all over the news? What exactly does Dad want with them? A dark, gritty drama.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 14+
