This is a slight book, weighing in at only 140-odd pages. That felt about right, but what didn't feel right was the simplistic level of writing. The author has written about a sophisticated and highly complex subject in a somewhat dumbed down manner. At times, I felt a little patronised; I'm sure teenagers (who I presume are the book's target demographic)would do as well. If not by the sentence structure than by the stereotypical characters.
Yet the story is compelling and made all the more frightening by the fact this really happened. It reminded me of The Demon Headmaster by Gillian Cross, to some extent - except when I reread that children's book recently, I didn't feel quite so talked down to.
