When twelve-year-old Ana-Marie Jin, the reigning the U.S. Juvenile Champion in figure skating, learns that they'll be portraying a princess in their new skating program, they're less than thrilled, to say the least. Ana's just not a frilly -- dress kind of girl, after all! Nevertheless, Ana's determined not to let anything derail the dream of achieving another national title-not after all these years of hard work and Mom's many sacrifices.

But when Ana meets Hayden, a transgender boy new to the rink, Ana's thoughts about gender identity throw her for a loop she wasn't expecting. And when Hayden mistakes Ana for a boy, Ana decides not to correct him, and soon settles into a comfortable, boyish identity whenever he's around. But as their friendship develops, Ana soon realizes that it's not easy to juggle two different identities on one slippery sheet of ice. And with a major competition approaching, Ana must decide whether the truth is worth risking everything they've trained for.

Ana on the Edge is a contemporary #ownvoices novel that offers a behind-the-scenes look into the world of competitive figure skating, while also giving readers a nonbinary protagonist to root and cheer for along the way.

“A wonderful novel about self-understanding, and lots of ice-skating too”

Ana loves ice skating, but over time has become more and more uncomfortable with how highly gendered it is. Girls vs boys, and Ana is on the girls side. And neither feels quite right. But when a name-badge mix up... More
