The Edgeworld is the name given to the world that the Edge Chronicles is set in. Most of the world was taken up by the Deepwoods, a vast and wild forest. To the north and south of the Deepwoods were the Edgelands, empty and desolate lands said to be inhabited by spirits. West of the Deepwoods were the Thorn Forests, the Nightwoods, and Riverrise.

Sitting up straight, she looked over the low wall of rocks behind which they were resting and at the remnants of the imperial army. A few hundred Ennoian soldiers and guards. A handful of Consecrated, amongst them Khoussan and Dalitha. The other fifty or so kragh had risen to their feet. They moved to the edge of the island, a wall of broad shoulders, green flesh, heavy weapons and bestial ferocity. Just one of those kragh was a match for three trained men; she’d seen them keep fighting the evening before, long after a man would have fallen to blood loss and wounds.

I don't give out five stars easily, but Phil Callaway earned every bit of it with this big-hearted story. Callaway hits the nail on the head in his descriptions of small town life, the changing evangelical church of the seventies, and the growing pains of a junior-high-age boy. The story moves effortlessly back and forth between the lighthearted and the serious. At the end, we see a moving picture of God's grace and what it means for us. Everyone will be able to identify with something in this story, and many may find that their outlook on life has been changed by reading it.

I loved this book, but am not as great with words as others. Here's a rather well-balanced review I read on the internet from a reviewer by the name of Phil Wade
Terry Anderson, the twelve-year-old narrator of this book, lives in a comical family, which, if they weren't fictional, would go toward proving that comedy comes out of pain. His mother deteriorates slowly from an incurable disease. His father makes little money as a mechanic. His oldest brother smokes, perpetually trying to quit and feeling cold shoulders from their legalistic church.
None of that works to build Terry's ego, but neither do his own decisions. So when Terry discovers a jackpot which could turn his hard, North Dakota winter into one long Christmas, he does what any pre-teen might do. He fills his pockets with candy and lies about the money. Of course, the longer he delays his confession, the more trouble risks.
Speaker and Author Phil Callaway is a humor-monger, who has written non-fiction on laughter and Christian living. Thus, this book is funny. Not Wodehouse funny, but light-hearted, warm, and occasionally funny enough to laugh out loud. The back cover boasts of colorful characters, and they do raise their heads here and there, but more interesting than Mayberry-style locals are the fine, upstanding hypocrites who attend Anderson's church. Callaway doesn't refrain from briefly describing a few people whose spiteful whispers surprised me in their indifference to the pain of fellow believers who were in the room though out of earshot.
Some heavy-handed application does sneak in. The town is named Grace because the story is about grace. There's even a little story to the town's naming-pioneers, Indians, and a miracle, you know. But Growing Up is an enjoyable book which should find a good audience. Callaway says he is working on a sequel.

I don't often read fiction, though I teach writing and lit. And I have only read a handful of "Christian novels" over the past decade. This one attracted me because of its wonderfully-illustrated cover and fascinating story line. How does a boy who is raised in a quaint little evangelical church deal with a huge temptation, ongoing mischief and misdeads without losing his mind, his conscience, and his faith. The answer comes through one of the best stories I have ever read. One that is filled with fall-down funny characters and a dozen or two nice plot twists. I'm ashamed to say that rarely do you find this level of writing in Christian literature, let alone Christian fiction. It is slightly reminiscent of Jan Karon's novels, though far more humorous. The author is to be commended for carefully crafting each sentence and paragraph to draw the story onward. My only complaint is that it wasn't a little longer (285 pages wasn't quite enough). I plan on recommending this to my college literature class. In fact, we will begin studying it shortly.

I agree with Ellen Vaugh (who co-wrote many of Chuck Colson's bestsellers) "Reading Phil Callaway's writing is one of life's pure pleasures." Young Terry Anderson lives in the small town of Grace (the location seems to be somewhere around Montana). He asks honest questions, like "If God wants me happy, why do I have to sit through church?" When Terry stumbles onto a startling secret that promises to right all wrongs, his life suddenly comes to a crossroads. Inspired by the godly example of an older brother and impassioned by his secret admiration for the prettiest girl in town, Terry knows the right thing to do. He just can't bring himself to do it. I found this the most fun read I've had in a long time. Its characters are colorful, and the mysterious illness that awaits Terry is called Huntington's (a disease I'm just beginning to learn about). The way forgiveness and hope are presented left me smiling. I've read the book three times and I've only had it a week. Callaway has scored a major hit!
