Críticas:

""The Winning Edge" creates suspense for young readers"

..."the scenes that detail the moment-to-moment execution of skating routines are nicely balanced with those that describe the social interactions. "The Winning Edge" is an extremely attractive and well-written addition to the notable Sports Stories series. Highly recommended." -- Deborah Dowson "Canadian Book Review Annual"

"Young readers will enjoy the story and the mild suspense, and her heroine Jennie comes to some mature conclusions about life without sounding like Goody Two-Shoes."--Susan Scott "Calgary Herald "

"This story clearly, almost painfully tells the story of a girl who is ostrasized by the 'popular group' in her junior high. Jennie's problem is the same as many students we see in our schools; she's just not cool enough. This part of the plot, even more than the sports story, rang true in the novel. The book is written by someone who knows a great deal about figure skating. Technical terms are used extensively. It made the story more believable."--Stephanie Olsen "Resource Links "

"Bossley does a good job of communicating the gritty reality behind the moments of glamour on the ice. She also shows the pressures that those with exceptional talent must face from even well-intentioned parents and coaches. Jennie is a sympathetic character, so unspoiled by her gifts that she is able to see the flaws in her parents' view of her future. Winning is never as important to Jennie as perfecting her skills, and she faces the loneliness of her talent without self-pity. This is a fine book."--Janet McNaughton "Quill & Quire "
