This is a quick and engaging read, with plenty of specifics. The tension slowly rises as the story unfolds, and I really appreciated the effort that went into distinguishing each person involved as an individual. The photos enhance the story, and I think the layout is particularly effective. Highly recommend for teens or adults.
