In a Nutshell: Super-readable cyberbully themed whodunit

“Friendship matters. Right? Being loyal. Being honest. Being there”. Of course, but how does it feel to be accused of betraying your best friend in the entire world? That’s exactly what happens to Carey, the likeable, girl-next-door lead in this tense teen pageturner.

The nightmare begins when Carey’s bestie, Amelia, is trolled by a Nattersnap app user who goes by the name of Sweetfreak. When the bullying escalates and Amelia receives a death threat, the police trace it back to Carey’s laptop, and her life unravels in an instant. While the pain of Carey’s ostracised existence is powerfully portrayed, she refuses to succumb to the sense of helplessness, and determines to discover Sweetfreak’s true identity. The many twists and turns of this highly readable, riveting whodunit will keep readers guessing to the final pages, and the novel’s of-the-moment relevance packs a powerful punch. ~ Joanne Owen
