Never a trendy writer, [Julia Cunningham] has chosen, probably by pure coincidence, a currently fashionable subject—an abandoned, abused boy. But her essential theme is far more profound, and it subtly pervades the brief, pointed story [of Come to the Edge]….

Disciplined, metaphorical writing adds its own rewards to a tense, mature, and thought-provoking story. (p. 449)
