An intense page turner...

Diana Urban's debut is a real page turner. I haven't read a book that fast in years - I couldn't put it down. I wasn't too far off in guessing who locked the teens in the room. That said, the novel tackles a lot of the stereotypes about high school, from drugs, bullies, manipulations, and suicide. The teens trapped in the back room of a restaurant are flawed, not the type of people you'd root for, but it is interesting to see how their stories intertwine. As expected, being in a locked room facing death brings out the worst in the teens and has tragic consequences. I'm still processing that ending though... There is quite a bit of f-bombs and other language present. The are discussions and innuendos regarding sex. Teen drinking and the dealing of drugs are present. There is also a character who struggles with the suicide of her older sister. The violence in the book is not graphic. High school students and older should be okay reading this book.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
