I really enjoyed this book. It was an interesting and unusual mix of psychological thriller and dark fantasy, and it was more than suspenseful enough to keep me reading. The format, which consisted of captioned video footage, newspaper clippings, and excerpts from the main character’s diary, was cleverly done in that it told the whole story without the need for much added explanation. Though pretty open-ended, the conclusion answered the story’s important questions in a way that made sense; something a lot of thrillers struggle to do. I would recommend this book for kids age 14 and up, as there is violence and some sexual themes.
