    I can remember reading this as a teenager, and really identifying with Melanie It took me years to hunt down a copy to own.What I loved most about the book is that although Melanie is your typical teenage girl, she s not your typical damsel in distress Her background and the events she has had to overcome really instilled a resilience inside her, preparing her for what was to come.Being Australian, I loved the references to our culture and brands The descriptive writing isn t overpowering, an I can remember reading this as a teenager, and really identifying with Melanie It took me years to hunt down a copy to own.What I loved most about the book is that although Melanie is your typical teenage girl, she s not your typical damsel in distress Her background and the events she has had to overcome really instilled a resilience inside her, preparing her for what was to come.Being Australian, I loved the references to our culture and brands The descriptive writing isn t overpowering, and the exciting storyline will appeal to teens and adults alike.It s a quick read, however it s paced nicely and the ending doesn t let you down We get to see the cogs ticking inside the antagonists head, and Melanie s internal dialogue keeps us on the edge of our seat.I ve always wondered why this book isn t as well known as it ought to be It s deeply disturbing, intense and a great example of a heroine who uses her brains to get herself through what is a thoroughly terrifying experience

    We read this in high school, I remember thinking, is this an appropriate book to give teens It s aimed at that age group but there s some pretty confronting themes for young adults It was a good read though, if disturbing.
