"No one gets something for nothing. We all should know better." Teenagers at Wisconsin's Nottawa High School are drawn deeper into a social networking site that promises to grant their every need...regardless of the consequences. Soon the site turns sinister, with simple pranks escalating to malicious crimes. The body count rises.
In this chilling YA thriller, the author of the best-selling Testing trilogy examines not only the dark side of social media but the dark side of human nature.

Isn't this the fear we all have today? Look how easy the California killer found it to convince his weak minded friend.
While I really got into the story, every once in a while I found myself getting annoyed by the pedantic tone of the book. Social media are dangerous and teenagers do not know what they really need, the message seems to be. Leaving out that message would have made for a much better read (and may have gotten readers thinking instead of just rolling their eyes at the abundance of references to 'the dangerous world wide web'). However, I liked the set-up of the book and still found Need a good read.
