Wrong Number by Rachelle J. Christensen is a thrilling suspense novel. I was lucky enough to get a copy from her to read a few weeks back. Even though it's geared for adults, my thirteen-year-old son took it and keeps talking about it. I wouldn't have guessed he would get into it, but he really has.
And he doesn't get into a lot of books. That alone should tell you how great of a read this is.
The story starts right up with a murder mystery and keeps you turning the pages. With a little romance tucked in there, the balance of suspense and love works very well. I'm one of those people where if the entire book is scarier than spit, I have a hard time reading it. This one had the tension without turning me off.
And, I don't mind if my thirteen-year-old does get into it. It's not too graphic or mushy.
It's smart too. I love that in the end, there's a logical reason for things; one that is a level beyond the obvious.
I tried not to give you any spoilers. Now you can hop on over to a bookstore and check it out.
