Cam room strangers
Unfortunately, the plotting is sloppy, and the teens' slangy but annoyingly didactic online chats don't read like normal IM conversations.
Watcher55 is a weird, even scary, character, who eventually leads the teens into trouble (most notably when Lorri sneaks out of the house, goes to a party, and is slipped drugs).The characters are intriguing and well-drawn, as they reveal themselves through a series of on-line-style chats.Further, the careful plotting keeps the story moving along -- providing some shocking surprises along the way.At the same time, spiritually we all are invaded by "strangers" who want to do us harm.Promoting online safety as well as safety in God's arms, this is short eye-opening read! I wonder often who my kids are talking to online, even though we have warned them about talking to strangers.John Green Copyright © American Library Association.
