It is by far one of my favorite books, but not Avi's best, but that is hard to compete to. This book is very addicting, a great thriller. Extremely hard to put down. It's about this young kid named Andy, he just moved in with his dad after his mother died. He got a phone call from this guy named Zeke one night. Zeke said he just killed someone. Nobody belives Andy, and he has no proof. But he is bound and determined to prove it is true, looking all over for help, and trying to find his own proof. It's not the most realistic book, but still is a book that keeps you on the end of chair, and on your tips of your toes. The cover or title didn't catch my eye. I wasn't going to read it until one day my reading teacher read a section to it to me. I continued it on my own, and I am glad. Must read great book. I highly recommend it to you.

Maybe I'm extremely weird, but it's been nine years since I bought this book, and I still read it just for fun every once in a while. The characters are great, as well as the plot. What may be this novel's most endearing quality is that it not only shows suspense, but it also accurately portrays the volatile relationship between a father and a teenage son. That's rare in a young adult book. And I'm so tired of reading thrillers about wimpy girls who can't take care of themselves, but this book didn't have that. This book had no trouble keeping my attention.

AVI

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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The author tries to create a world where every adult and person of authority acts irrationaly; even the father of the protangonist does not believe his him, though the author tries to portray the son and his father as having a close relationship and responsibility to care for each other. We are given no proof as why none of the adults even listen to him. Does he have a record with the police concerning crank-calls? The answer is no. So why aren't the police in this book doing there job? The answer is the author never throughly thought this story through. This story play upon the paranoia of a teenager as being the outsider, the outcast, standing alone in the world, and trying to be a hero in the end. The funny thing about this book is the author tries to create a reality based world and fails miserably.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The phone rang three times before Andy picked up. "I killedsomeone." That was the first thing said in this amazing wonderful book. It captures you in a mind bending story of a young high school student who is tangled in a murder. He tries to tell his friends and family but no one will pay any attention. He finally decides to investigate himself. That gets him into more than he bargand for.
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.

It all begins when Andy, the son of a local college teacher in their hometown, receives a nerve-racking call. "I just killed some one." Andy cannot believe the story he is told; a psychotic man named Zeke and the girl he just murdered. Andy and his best friend, Paul, contact the police. No help there; they just laughed at them. Andy later finds out that Nina Klemmer is still living! Was it all a joke? Or is Nina Klemmer really in trouble? And if so, can Andy figure out who Zeke is and stop it from happening? I thought Wolf Rider was a very good book. I loved all the unexpected events, and could not put it down. It was really exciting and shocking. I really enjoyed it and I think you will, too.
