Very captivating and well-written book, but I didn't enjoy reading it. It was so realistic, and reading it legitimately scared me at some points. Even after finishing it, I still feel haunted about events that happened in the book. I'm not saying that it isn't a good book, just be prepared for a very dark read.

I think every young girl should read this book! So accurate about online predators. If you think it can't happen to you, or your daughter......think again!
Very informative!

Wow. This was so not what I expected from the beginning of the book. I was automatically captured at the first chapter by the way the author wrote it. It definitely took a different turn than expected when she meets Luke online. Though there were some inappropriate parts, they weren't too descriptive and it only described it slightly to make a point of the whole novel. A very interesting read.

Most amazing book I have ever read. This author is very talented. She even re-tweeted me on twitter. I finished the book in one day. I just couldn't put it down!

Pretty good book. It is one of the first accurate books I have read about online relationships and online predators and stuff.

Er... There were a lot of parts I skipped for specific reasons... But other than that the book was great. I silently cheered when Abby finally got rid or overpowered... I can't find the right word, but anyways, when she finally got over (still doesn't sound right) her stage fright. And not only that, but she was talking about a big topic for her. It was amazing to see that, true, fictional, but that she could get over it with the help of awesome family and friends. I read it in a few hours... It was that good. I sort of got sucked into it...

Sexual Content: Has some nudity, but not a whole lot. It is OK if your mature, though if not, don't say I didn't warn you.
