These are the words written on Tessa Waye’s diary. The diary that ends up with Wick Tate. But Tessa’s just been found . . . dead.
Wick has the right computer-hacking skills for the job, but little interest in this perverse game of hide-and-seek. Until her sister Lily is the next target.
Then Griff, trailer-park boy next door and fellow hacker, shows up, intent on helping Wick. Is a happy ending possible with the threat of Wick’s deadbeat dad returning, the detective hunting him sniffing around Wick instead, and a killer taunting her at every step?
Foster child. Daughter of a felon. Loner hacker girl. Wick has a bad attitude and sarcasm to spare.
But she’s going to find this killer no matter what.
Because it just got personal.
My ThoughtsOh where to begin! Simply put I LOVED this book. I loved how the author Romily Bernard gave us such a strong female character. I enjoyed how Wick is a fine line between strong yet soft. It’s a hard thing to do without one being more dominate than the other.
I’m a huge fan of the whole teen hacking storyline. It’s something different and has plenty of action in it. This story was more than that though. It’s also a story of a young girl trying to hold her and sister together and trying to make a decent life after all the hardships she’s already experienced in her short life thus far. The things she has seen and been exposed to has made Wick the way she is, making it hard for her to trust anyone in her life again.
Wick is thrown into a sick and twisted game by someone who has made it clear they want Wick’s sister as their next victim. Never one to back down from anything Wick has made it her mission to save her sister, but is it Wick who will need to be saved?
An amazing fast paced adventure one you will not want to miss. While you might be able to figure out who’s the person behind everything, this story is so much more than that. There are so many twists and turns to this book that the whole aspect of the ‘who done it’ is merely a small piece of this amazing page turning puzzle. Romily Bernard’s writing will suck you in within minutes and will keep you captivated until the very end. She’s definitely one voice I can't wait to hear more of. Now I don’t know if this is a series or stand alone but let me just put it out there that I’m hoping there’s more to come!
