Miracle McCloy is the child of a talented dancer, who died in childbirth, and a brilliant, reclusive novelist. Raised by her grandmother Gigi, a psychic, Miracle becomes a dancer herself, and a loner who believes in mystical spirits and auras. Then her father disappears. When no one can give an explanation, or even a version of the truth, Miracle becomes obsessed with contacting him and bringing him back. As she loses herself in her quest, she loses her self— and, in a last, desperate attempt, sends her life up in flames. In the page-turning tradition of best-selling novels I Never Promised You a Rose Garden and The Bell Jar, Dancing on the Edge gives readers a story— and a heroine— they will never forget. "Nolan dives into the mind of an emotionally disturbed girl in an intense, exceptionally well-written novel

User Review  - Cas - Goodreads

This book was very depressing. It was difficult to read, like the author couldn't finish a thought before rambling on to the next one. I can't believe I read the entire book. Read full review
