Reviews

Media Reviews

"[An] addictive read with a poignant message about the price of popularity." - Publishers Weekly

". The book tries to be both creepy and insightful, but ends up being trite and pieced together. Nevertheless-purchase it. It is not great literature, but it will be greatly popular. " - VOYA

"There are magical elements in this novel, and plenty of creepy touches. Both take away from the book's realism, but add deliciously to its suspense. The language and situations are provocative, but teens will gobble the story up." - School Library Journal

"No feel-good ending here: Myracle's self-involved, callous, and cruel high-schoolers are the worst of the breed. Darkly comic, well realized and upsetting." - Kirkus Reviews.

This book is... well interesting to a point. You could learn so much more if there was a little more description to it. Yes you could learn from it just to be yourself and whatever you do it will come back and get you.

It's most likely a middle school type of book, yea high school maybe.
