From a star football player standing up for a tormented student to a ruthless bully who tests the faith of a religious girl, a compelling and dramatic collection of stories embodies the teen "outsider" experience and features contributions from such authors as M. E. Kerr, Grahan Salisbury, and Angela Johnson.
I'm writing this because I'm aghast at some of the other reviews of "On the Fringe." It's a bad book because of its length? Not necessarily. Most of its stories are shorter than the average New Yorker fiction piece, and there's no need to read them all to enjoy the book. Short story collections don't have to be read straight through like a chapter book.
Another complaint: It shouldn't have examples of how kids humiliate other kids lest it give them ideas on how to be mean? Well, guess what? Kids don't need a book to teach them meanness. They pick it up from peers and TV quite nicely, and also from their families and society at large. Just look at the current news, whether international, national or local.
This book is a good start for a discussion about school violence, such as Columbine. The authors get inside the heads of their teenage protagonists nicely and for the most part, the dialogue and actions come across as authentic, not forced. A brief bio follows each story, explaining why the author chose the subject he or she did.
Standouts in my opinion were "Standing on the Roof Naked" by Francess Lantz, "A Letter from the Fringe" by Joan Bauer, and "Through a Window" by Angela Johnson. The last is unique to the book because it focuses on a character who might be classified as a bystander, not a victim or bully.
A wonderful collection of short stories about kids who are "outsiders" which can facilitate some great discussions both in the home and in the classroom. The stories are written by well-known YA authors and many readers, both old and young, will easily relate to the universal situation of those in the "in-group" versus those "on the fringe."
Great story
Perfect condition
great ant
print is tiny and the book is very small as well.
This is an xmas gift for my 14 year old niece. Haven't read it, but seems like a good book for her to realize she's not alone in some of her teen difficulties.
the book is great i had to read it for young adult literature and i enjoyed it. great book for intermediate and high school students
I used selections from this collection as read-alouds for my 8th grade language arts class (I end class most days with a read-aloud, while students keep a response journal). Because of the subject matter, these stories definitely engage the students and keep their attention. Do they all "get" the message? No, but I guarantee that when you look around the room and see the eyes of those two or three students who are themselves on the fringe, you will know it was worth it.
