A novel about two teenage misfits who spectacularly collide one fateful summer, and the art they make that changes their lives forever. Sixteen-year-old Frankie Budge, aspiring writer, indifferent student, offbeat loner, is determined to make it through yet another sad summer in Coalfield, Tennessee, when she meets Zeke, a talented artist who has just moved into his grandmother's unhappy house and who is as lonely and awkward as Frankie is. Romantic and creative sparks begin to fly, and when the two jointly make an unsigned poster, shot through with an enigmatic phrase, it becomes unforgettable to anyone who sees it. The edge is a shantytown filled with gold seekers. We are fugitives, and the law is skinny with hunger for us. The posters begin appearing everywhere, and people wonder who is behind them. Satanists, kidnappers, the rumors won't stop, and soon the mystery has dangerous repercussions that spread far beyond the town. The art that brought Frankie and Zeke together now threatens to tear them apart. Twenty years later, Frances Eleanor Budge, famous author, mom to a wonderful daughter, wife to a loving husband, gets a call that threatens to upend everything: a journalist named Mazzy Brower is writing a story about the Coalfield Panic of 1996. Might Frances know something about that? And will what she knows destroy the life she's so carefully built?… (més)

It kept me interested, but didn’t shake my world. ( )

I enjoyed Nothing to See Here and warm fuzzies I got from it. I think this book lacked that emotional connection for me. I did like the story line and how one moment in time can be a lifetime of memories. I noticed other reviews mentioned an authors note at the beginning. Was this only in the audiobook? I went back and looked for it, to no avail. I think if I had read that it might have set a better tone for the book. ( )

Audiobook

A great audio! A-short, intense, and strange book but really enjoyable. A fever dream of a teenage summer and the repercussions of it revisited 20 years later. ( )

"I think maybe art is supposed to make your family uncomfortable," he offered.
"Are you guys boyfriend and girlfriend?" Andrew interrupted, pointing the tip of his slice of pizza at Zeke in a way that only my brothers could make look threatening.
"We're friends," I finally said. "We're FRIENDS."
"Good friends," Zeke offered, and I nodded to him like, Yeah, duh, but also like, Shut up, my brothers will try to ruin me.
"Well, I for one think it's great that Frankie has found such a good friend for the summer."
"Frankie has no friends," Brian told Zeke, like maybe he was stupid and didn't understand how weird I was.
The edge is a shantytown filled with gold seekers. We are fugitives, and the law is skinny with hunger for us.
He took the map out of his backpack and searched until he found the geographic location of this abandoned house and made a star with his pen. He held it open and we looked at the stars on the map. Even though Coalfield seemed like the dinkiest place on earth, when we counted the stars, all the open space that was still unmarked, I felt a little overwhelmed. I felt like maybe I wouldn't be able to sleep until the whole map was a single constellation.
