Walk the Edge
By Katie McGarry
Review by Logan B.
1. What is this book about? (who are the characters? When and where does it take place?)
This book is about two people named Razor and Breanna who are the exact opposite of each other and come from different worlds. As I read further, I found that their lives clashed together at a slow but sure pace.
Razor is from a motorcycle club called Reign of Terror that is feared by citizens of Snowflake, Kentucky. Breanna comes from a big family and gets good grades in school. In the end, I saw that Razor and Breanna had more similarities than differences in their lives.
2. Did you enjoy reading the book? If so, what did you like about it. If not, what didn’t you like about it?
I did enjoy the book. Besides liking the ending and how the events unfolded, I liked the part where Razor takes a bullet for one of his Terror brothers and gains their trust by doing so. I also like how with this book, the scenes in my head were clear.
3. What was your favorite part or your favorite character? Why did you like that part or character?
The main character Razor was my favorite because I relate to him because I have a similar life, to an extent, like him. How he said so little, but so much in few words is a trait I own too.
4. Did you relate to the story or any character? How did you relate?
Besides Razor, another character I related to was Breanna’s sister, Clara. Feeling like an outsider to her family and she can’t control her mind or brain is what I feel like sometimes.
5. Would you recommend this book to someone else? Why would you tell them they should or should not read it?
Yes, I would recommend this book because it’s a rollercoaster ride of emotions and is a good romantic book all in all. It reminds me of how Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook etc.) writes his books.
6. What was your favorite quote and why did you like that quote?
My favorite quote was not directly said but it was directly thought by Razor.
“Mom’s bridge- I lost my way. The bridge I’m standing on- I had spiritually jumped. The bridge where I tackled Kyle- I saved myself.”
I like this quote, especially because it shows the character’s experience with bridges and gets the reader to view his pain and success from his point of view.
