I’ll begin with Lucy. She is definitely first on the list. You can’t believe how it feels to be in the cafeteria and turn around and there she is staring at me like I’m some disgusting bug or vermin. Does she really think I WANT to be this way? I hate you, Lucy. I really hate you. You are my #1 pick. I wish you were dead.
The day after anonymous blogger Str-S-d wishes the popular girl would die, Lucy vanishes. The students of Soundview High are scared and worried. Especially frightened and wracked with guilt is Madison Archer, Lucy’s friend and the last person to see her the night she disappeared.
As days pass with no sign of the missing girl, even the attention of Tyler, an attractive new student, is not enough to distract Madison from her growing sense of foreboding. When two more popular students disappear after their names are mentioned on Str-S-d’s blog, the residents of Soundview panic.
Meanwhile, Madison receives anonymous notes warning that she could be next. Desperate to solve the mystery before anyone else disappears, Madison turns to Tyler, but can she trust him when it becomes clear that he knows more than he’s sharing?
The clock is ticking. Madison must uncover the truth behind the mysterious disappearances . . . before her name appears in Str-S-d’s blog.
Aria recommended this book to me, and I'm glad that she did. I found this book very enjoyable and I simply could not put it down!
At first I was a bit judgmental because this book reminded me so much of Pretty Little Liars (strangely, everything does). I thought that it would be tacky and lame and that Aria was just sugar-coating the book for me. I should have known better than to doubt Aria's taste in books; we very similar things.
First of all not only was the plot intoxicating but the characters were amazing. They were all well thought out and fit into the plot nicely. Each character brought something to the story. I absolutely loved the main character and could relate to her on so many levels. She was nice but not fake. In every school there's that one popular girl who's friendly with everyone not matter their 'social status'. Madison was that girl.
I loved all of the characters but what made me love the book the most was the mystery. Aria had already told me who it was but I'd forgotten so I still got the thrill of the mystery. I pathetically, felt very smart when I figured out waaaay beforehand, who the blogger was.
If you're looking for something to read, then definitely pick this up!
