Riassunto: Frustrated by his life of near-poverty and the unreliability of his divorced, drunken father, thirteen-year-old Scott throws himself into a science project raising clams to restock the bay of his Maine village.
From School Library Journal:
Gr 5-8--To escape the realities of his near poverty and his abusive, drunken, drug-smuggling father, 13-year-old Scott Easton throws himself into a 4-H science project raising clams to restock the bay of his coastal Maine village. Mead does a fine job of conveying the boy's anger, frustration, and confusion. Indeed, his love of leaning into the wind while poised on a cliff becomes a metaphor for his precarious life and the balancing act it requires. When Scott realizes that his mother gets money from her estranged husband by allowing him to abuse her, the boy's rage results in spying on his father's illegal activities. Walking the Edge is not only a coming-of-age story. Inspired by a group of highly committed students who helped start the Beals Island Clam Hatchery 10 years ago, the novel is also a great science lesson in the ecology of the bay. Scott's amazement at the delicate and relentless process of life will be shared by readers. Mead has balanced a common image of Maine by presenting a picture of the rural poverty that is not conveyed by the cover of L.L. Bean catalogs.
