Cutting Edge

This is a series for young adults who find conventional fiction irrelevant or too hard to read. The series takes an honest and hard-hitting approach to subject matter that many teens will identify with, such as self-abuse, family breakdown, suicide, and sexuality. At 25,000 to 35,000 words, the books are shorter than your average novel, but still look like a trade paperback. The clear, carefully chosen font is slightly larger than normal, and paragraphs are broken with a space.
