Jay is determined to make his name by climbing a tough rock face known as "The Wall" -- solo. No partner, no ropes, no equipment. Little does Jay suspect that it's his own life that will one day hang in the balance.
In this exciting rock-climbing adventure, Kellerhals-Stewart looks at the desire to break barriers and the questionable role of the media in the dangerous pursuits of extreme sports.

"Extreme Edge, with short chapters and easy vocabulary, is an excellent choice for reluctant readers. The rock climbing is described in a clear and exciting manner which takes readers right up 'the Wall' alongside Jay and gets the adrenalin flowing. The novel would make an excellent addition to the young adult fiction section of any library."

- CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"...a thrilling experience from the first page to the last....Kellerhals-Stewart maintains a wonderful balance between character development and plot, achieving a brisk pace that does not sacrifice depth. ... With easy vocabulary and high energy, this book is a perfect addition to any reluctant reader's book list."
