Predator

I finished this one a long time ago and just realized that I haven't reviewed it yet.  I love Terri Blackstock.  I have read a couple of her series and always love the characters.
In Predator, Krista Carmichael's sister is killed by an online predator.  She confronts Ryan Adkins, the originator of the social network, GrapeVyne--where it seems the killer found her sister.  Krista decides she is going to bait the killer using the same site.  The predator takes the bait while Ryan and Krista work together to catch him and keep other young girls safer online.
This book made me think about how easy the internet makes things for predators.  Kids post pictures.  They post where they are and with who on a minute by minute basis.  Predators can get weekly or daily schedules and make easy prey of the naive or lonely.  It is actually pretty scary!
I love it when novels spark deeper thought.  I enjoyed this book.  It was fast paced with good characters and an interesting suspenseful plot.

  1. Hi! I'm a brand new follower and I liked your review of this book. I too read this book when it first came out and really liked it. It made me think twice about what I'm posting. People share way to much these days and the predators use it. Anyway I write book reviews too among other things and would love for you to check out my blog. :) www.candysfavorites.blogspot.com
