I have a love/hate relationship with this book.... As a mother of a daughter this age, who has herself just gone off to post-secondary schooling, this book scares the hell out of me, and it pisses me off to no end. I couldn't stop reading it however, even though it stressed me out to go to the next paragraph, let alone the next chapter. I kept waiting for the 'bogeyman' to show himself (by this I mean the monster that every parent has nightmares about when it comes to their teenage daughters, in the form of Bruce, the old man who pretends to be 30 in the beginning). I don't know if I will ever read the rest of the books in this series, or if I will try and leave it in the past, because my mind has played out so many different scenarios as to the ultimate end of this whole situation and I'm not sure how I would take any of them. I've never wanted to strangle an author so badly, or ask her what she was thinking when writing a book, and still want to ask her where she is taking the story in the next book! Kayla Lowe is very good at getting the readers attention and holding it through every word she writes. She makes it very real through her descriptions of every little detail. You can picture the people, the places, and feel all the feelings. I would recommend this book, especially to 16/17 year old girls, to give them a reason to not get drawn into the world of internet chatting with strangers! I was given this book by the author and asked to write an unbiased review, which I think I have done here.
