Description

Travis and his best friends Ryan and Jasper live for the thrill of watching their horses race. When a thief starts hacking off the tails of Standardbred horses stabled at Blackdown Park, suddenly the track isn't such a great place to hang out. Things get even more unpleasant when a troubled girl comes between Travis and his friends. Travis has to make some tough choices, but how can he stand by his friends when he no longer trusts them?

Editorial Reviews

"One of the finest. This novel gets off to a quick start and doesn't stop, exploring a number of complex issues along the way."

— Resource Links

"A flawless teenage tale. There is no black, no white; just, as is the case in life, only shades of confusing and complicated grey wound around hearts and hormones…Tate offers hope and sadness, not as a solution but as reality."

— The Globe and Mail

"As the tension mounts in the story, [Tate]...captures the excitement and uncertainty that can come along with dating someone new and unknown, and she mixes in vivid descriptions of scenes that involve a fight, a kiss, and a race...Razor's Edge reads like a real life mystery...Highly recommended."

— CM Magazine

"The story is realistic and will appeal to reluctant readers."

— Tacoma School District #10
