What would you do if a guy called and told you that he had killed a girl? What if he also told you where he was and why he did? Andy, the main character, had hung up from the phone with a suspicion that he really killed someone. His dad is a teacher at the near by college. When he had called the police they said that they would take care of it. He figured that the police would have found if he had really killed her. Andy then calls the police and is told that there were no killings and that he probably was a prank caller. He waited a few days and started to get bothered by the fact no one believes him. He then tries to research who this guy was and how he got the number. The weird thing was they had changed numbers 3 days before the call. Andy then finds out that there is a girl with the name the killer had said.
I bet your asking if this is really a good book to read, right? Yea, this is probably one of the most interesting stories I have ever read. I am into exciting books where you can't actually predict what happens. This is defiantly a page-turner. The first five pages will make you want to keep on reading. I am a hard person to get my attention because I lose interest fast. It was not that hard to concentrate on the main focus of the story. I think that I made a connect to the main character because he sticks to what he believes in like I do. He knows that nobody will believe so he takes matters into his own hands. I mostly enjoy this genre of books because mysteries are unreliable stories. I enjoyed how AVI wrote the book because of the whole topic of the story.Read more ›
I think this book is amazing and very energetic. It keeps you guessing all through the book. I was speechless by the end of the book. You start to feel what the characters are feeling scared, excited,and clueless about who the prankster is. You wont want to put it down. When the book ends you will want more. This was the best book ever.
