Gr 7 Up—The new social-networking site for students at Nottawa High School is by invitation only and includes some added benefits. Teens can tell the website a "need," and they will be given a task. When the task is completed, their need is met. The tasks seem trivial—until they are not. As the pranks turn into crimes and people begin to die, will anyone step up and question who is pulling the strings behind this website? Laura Knight Keating and Therese Plummer's characterizations provide deeper insight into the thoughts of the victims and the perpetrators. Listeners who pick up this audiobook because they loved Charbonneau's "The Testing" trilogy will not be disappointed with this tale of social media gone wrong.
VERDICT A strong addition to a middle school, high school, or public library collection. ["A taut mystery sure to elicit discussion": SLJ 10/15 review of the HMH book.]
