Ana on the Edge
Sheila Averbuch's review
May 17, 2020
Debut novelist AJ Sass has carved out a piece of his soul to write Ana on the Edge, and I'm urging you to run, not walk, to pre-order this incredibly moving book. Ana is a highly accomplished, award-winning figure skater growing up in the heavily gendered world of the sport but doesn't identify as a boy or girl. Ana learns what non-binary means in the course of the story, which is a super believable tale of coming out to her friends, family, coach and fellow athletes. I kept highlighting passages and flat out wept when Ana and mom have The Talk. Do yourself a favor and walk a mile in the shoes... skates...of a non-binary 12-year old: you need this one on your bookshelf.
