This thriller possesses all the right ingredients to build a formidable young adult novel . The main protagonists are teens and their complex relationships between themselves and the adult world, their extreme sensitivity , instability, their radically different backgrounds : a lethal combination which can only lead to tragedy.
Even if this book is not on the young adult shelf I highly recommend it to them , if they start it they will not be able to put it down : the prose flows easily, the dialogues are intense ,the suspense lasts until the very end .
