Cyber bullying. Eli Bennett isn’t into cyber bullying, but he is into hacking, just to show he can get into sites – he scared himself once when he released information which resulted in a shooting. Luckily no one was hurt, but since then, he’s been careful, removing, as much as possible any trace of his electronic footprint.

When Jordan Bishop died as a result of bullying, both cyber and ‘live’, their school cracked down on the use of computer programs which began to inhibit their general use – which has wide reaching repercussions. This is a tale of system failure, jealousy, shame, and cowardice…its a story of a young man trying to control a monster he has developed before its too late.

This is another brilliant story from Erin Lange – all Erin’s books are punchy – with a tale to tell – a reflection on life and how people behave towards one another, when the proverbial chips are down…

Another brilliant one – particularly for those computer people out there, of which I am not one!

The cover – is that of the proof, so I’m not sure if this will reflect the actual one the book will have…

I don’t know why, but it isn’t often that I enjoy American authors. I keep reading Erin Lange, however, so there must be something in her writing. This is very American, both in its use of English and story line.

It is the story of four teenagers whose lives become entangled initially through no fault of their own. It’s about burgeoning friendships, families, heroin, guns, corrupt police and a violin.goffriller-violin-f-hole-corner-sam-hymas

It is about a chase against all odds and finally about what is important.

Each character is the product of their history – each behaving the way they do as a result of what has happened to them before, and you slowly learn about them as the story becomes more involved and knotted…

I read it with intervals of work and sleep over two days or so – another Erin Lange (Butter and / Dead Ends). Another for you to enjoy too.
