Oracle of dating allison van diepen
It’s fast-paced and will keep you on the edge of your seat.
(Haha, punny.) It gives you a swoony romance but it also gives you real life and meaning.
She did this because the media only named the deceased as ‘a homeless man’ so she took it upon herself to correct them, to make everyone recognize that it wasn’t just a homeless man, but a man who had family and hopes and dreams.
Maddie also has this amazing spirit that’s so easy to relate to. One kind of downside to On the Edge is that it has a slight hint of insta-love, which is usually a big pet peeve of mine. I didn’t even really mind it that much because the relationship was just so intriguing. I was worried that it might read a little cheesy when it came to the gangs but it didn’t.
There are amazing things that he and his gang do to counteract the drugs, violence, and human trafficking.
In this way, I really loved that not only did we get a sneak peek into a lifestyle we may never experience, but Allison did a fantastic job of giving us as much detail as possible in scenery and character profiles to paint us a large-scale picture. For me it was one of those guilty pleasure Alex reads, wherein it’s not something that I’d normally pick up but I happen to and end up reading it all in one sitting.
If she hadn't, she wouldn't have seen two members of the Reyes gang attacking a homeless man.
Now, as the only witness, she knows there’s a target on her back.
She has to worry about them at school, at work, even at home.
The novel showcases a gritty, realistic voice and earth–shattering romance that will intrigue readers of Simone Elkeles and Paul Griffin and captivate fans of Allison van Diepen's other novels.
Back in September(ish) 2014 when I still did Waiting on Wednesday posts on the almost weekly, I did a Waiting on Wednesday post on On the Edge.
She works to find out who he is and when she does she learns what Lobo stands for and why he stands for it, after getting dragged back into another larger scale fight.
Another strong point of On the Edge is its diversity inclusion.
I talked about how I liked the kind of person that Maddie was but Allison also did a very good job of giving us a feeling of who Lobo is.
