This book reminded me of past events & really got into the minds of both main characters. I recommend it to older teens (9th graders & up.) I didn't believe the ending tho of the prey having been so aggressive. To me it didn't fit the character all along. But I agree these kind of things happen.

I commented on another book called Something Happened that it reminded me a lot of this book. However, I think this one is done better then the other mentioned.

rather disturbing story but one that needs to be told. not for the faint of heart. every teacher, teenager, school board member and parent should read this.
