It is a Maggie O'Dell novel. The story is about five college students that go to the Mall of America the day after Thanksgiving. The day the retail world calls Black Friday. Sounds normal right? Wrong! These students are called cutaways by someone known as the Project Manager. This man talked three students into carrying a red backpack into the mall with "jamming devices" inside. They were told that these devices would screw up the store and mall computers. Being the busiest shopping day of the year, it would cause mass confusion. Little did the students know but they were being turned into suicide bombers.
One student named Dixon brought two friends along.He wound up being called from the mall by his Grandfather because his Grandmother had to have heart surgery. Thinking nothing of it he handed his backpack over to his friend Rebecca.
After Dixon left, Rebecca had to go to the bathroom. Their other friend Patrick waited for her in the food court. The other two students with the backpacks were walking seperately through the mall as instructed. Rebecca went to the bathroom but forget to get the backpack off the hook on the stall door when she left.
When she got back to the food court, she told Patrick she would be right back and left to retrieve it. As she approached the bathroom it happened. A huge explosion! The Project Manager had used his remote and detonated two of the bombs. The third would not go off for some reason.
Chaos...confusion...death...body parts was everywhere.
I have to stop so I do not give away who is involved and what happens next. Read the book! It was a fast reading page turner. It will make you really think about how vulnerable we really are.
This book was riveting and a great thriller, The Black Friday concept is what caught my attention. I would never have thought about when I go out to a mall the day after Thanksgiving, that there would be a bomb at a place I would be shopping. This book will make you think about that, with the way the world is today.
All in all I really enjoyed this book, but the ending fell a little flat. If you are a Kava fan and a fan of Maggie ODell then you will enjoy this book. I hope that this story will continue in another book to help tie up some loose ends!
