Hell School: Fresh Meat tells the story of Sam, a freshman at a new school who has a secret admirer…except it’s anything but romantic. Starting off with creepy notes and slowly sliding into an uncomfortable confrontation, Sam’s admirer is nothing short of a stalker.
I felt the characters in this book were very well-fleshed out but it bothered me the way that Sam’s friends didn’t seem to care that the notes upset her. While she did have some support, in the form of Wes (one of her friend’s brother), it made the story seem more real and unsettling to show how isolated a person going through this kind of situation can feel. I can’t wait to see what else Sam has in store for her in the next installment of the series.
Heidi does a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life and their interactions were very real. My favorite character was probably Mike. What an awesome friend! The emotions as the letters started coming seemed believable, too. At first it was kind of weird and she wondered who it could be, but as the letters got creepier and creepier she realized this was very wrong. Since the stalker had done nothing to harm her, nothing could be done by the school. She just had to tolerate it.
This story seems to be setting things up for the rest of the story in future installments of the series. I do think this is a great series to get youth to understand how stalking can start off in very innocent ways and build into something frightening. I look forward to seeing how Sam handles everything in her sophomore year.

For anyone that has been in a new situation, can relate with this book. The feelings of being an outsider goes a long way of segregating a person from the herd. Appearing weak or an outsider is an open invitation to predators. I think there are many people that have had these feelings of separation.
I think that is why this story will resonate with many people. Some people will not like it because it hits too close to home. That is their feelings, I can’t disregard them, but for some they will love this book. I recommend you check it out.
The story is easy to read and drags you in right away. The characters are believable and true to themselves.
Even though I knew it was a series, I didn't expect it to end so suddenly, but, of course, that just makes me want to read the next installment to see what happens with Sam and her stalker and the boy she likes even though she knows she shouldn't.
I won a copy of this book through an author giveaway.
