What People are Saying About Edge of Yesterday

  • Payes has an engaging heroine in Charley. She's confident, hardworking, and curious; though she worries about homework, friends, and boys, she also is consumed with finding answers to serious questions like who we are and why we're here. Charley's friends are well-drawn and believable too.

    Kirkus Reviews
  • Charley Morton, a contemporary middle school girl, models the attributes of curiosity, self-confidence, moxie, and vulnerability, all wrapped into one credible science loving eighth grader. She is not to be missed!

    Janice Koch Ph.D., Professor Emerita Science Education, Hofstra University
  • The Edge of Yesterday is an incredible portal in providing youth a unique window into the past to experience multiple disciplines of STEM and STEAM (arts and design integration) through the lens of history.
