EASY PREY, by Catherine Lo, Amulet Books, Abrams

39018329

Only three students had access to a teacher’s racy photos before they went viral. There’s Mouse, a brainy overachiever so desperate to escape his father and go to MIT that he would do almost anything, legal or not. Then there’s Drew, the star athlete who can get any girl’s number—and private photos—with his charm but has a history of passing those photos around. And finally there’s Jenna, a good girl turned rebel after her own shocking photos made the rounds at school last year, who is still waiting for justice. All three deny leaking the photos, but someone has to take the fall. This edgy whodunit tackles hot-button issues of sexting and gossip and will have readers tearing through the pages to reach the final reveal.

MY THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

I’m not especially fond of the cover design and actually like the cover of another edition that I saw on Goodreads.com.

Anyway… this author is truly a master writer fully capable of creating characters you will love/hate simultaneously. What I love about this particular thriller is that Lo keeps you guessing right up to the end.

Her pacing is perfect and keeps you engaged in the story and all her characters are perfectly flawed and multi-layered.  The content matter is right up to date with current events and she faces these issues head-on by adding complexity and unexpected twists and turns at the right moments.

I will be reading more of Catherine Lo’s work.

I gave this book:

5-star
