The Lovereading4Kids comment

A powerful and uncompromising psychological thriller that's not for the faint-hearted. When seventeen-year-old Callie Carson is found standing over the body of her best friend holding the knife that killed her, everyone assumes she's guilty. Then someone takes a picture with their mobile phone, and in a matter of minutes the photo is plastered all over the Internet. This title is the first of three slick and sophisticated techno thrillers in the vein of James Patterson and Scholastic's Point Horror series.

Synopsis

Blood on My Hands by Todd Strasser

Wrongly accused of her best friend's murder, now seventeen year old Callie is on the run... As the circumstantial evidence piles up and the image of her holding the knife appears on more and more websites, Callie quickly realizes the only way to clear her name is to track down the real murderer. But what can one girl do against a ruthless killer willing to do almost anything to protect his, or her, identity?

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
