I thought the book was amzing, i felt like i was Alica Ruffino. the way she explained the small detials of every character and how they felt. was just out standing. There was some strong languge used but overall it was a perfect book to read for someone like me who loves to dance and also loves action, suspence, thrilleres. I loved the contrast between the characters no to were alike. the way she made (Ali) a powerless, weak girl who was afried of the bitch in her dance class, used the power of fear and her skills of dance to overcome the staking of the retired police officer Mr. Ryan. If i had to give this a ratting of 1 through 5, 5 being the best. It would a defnet 5. Carol M. Tanzman played this book out very well and intresting. I think this would be suitable for the ages of 13 to 20.

This is what I would decribe as a "soupy" book. The plotline goes in and out, up and down. At some points you love the book but at others it just doesn't keep your attention. It's good, but it flows quitely (like liquid) so it has a "soupy" feel. I don't know, but I think most people who have read it would agree.

I picked it up because I love to dance (like our heroine.) I was hoping that I would haer more about her love of dance. Even a whole page about nothing but her love of dance. Unfortunately for me, it wasn't really about dancing. It was about Internet stalking with a basis of dancing.

None of the characters really excited me but I didn't mind them which might have been another reason why I didn't like the book a whole lot. I can read books that don't have a constant flow of plotline but I need the character's to be compeltely lovable. While these charcters did have character, they didn't have any lovable traits. They were jsut there and frankly we didn't get much insight on them. Even Jacy, who relaly should have had more than he did.

Basically, this book would appeal to people who enjoy a book about Internet stalking or any stalking in general. I would reccommend it to those people but I don't think I'd show it proudly to anyone else. I give it a three.
