"Edgewise is courageous, heartfelt and unforgettable." - Wally Lamb, two time Oprah Book Club author of She's Come Undone, I Know This Much Is True, The Hour I First Believed and We Are Water

Simone is a popular, but troubled white middle class teacher who cuts herself. She flees from the uneducated, severely depressed patients in her inner-city treatment program, but is forced to return because "Oakhell" is the only facility she can afford. There, she meets Satch, a working-class black woman who scoffs at Simone's denial and cheerful demeanor. In the weeks that follow, Simone and Satch are thrown together both inside and outside of the hospital. Their tumultuous friendship becomes crucial to both women's quests to uncover the truths that propel them toward self-destruction.

"Edgewise is a story of humanity and how strength can come from many sources, even those we supposedly hate." - Midwest Book Review
