This was as good a read as The Traz and I can't wait for the third book.
Once again, Eileen Shuh is writing a lesson and an intense drama in one. Her characters are well-formed on both sides of the law. This is an important book that I think parents and teens should read. I suggest you to read "The Traz" as well, whether before or after doesn't matter, this book is the outcome of the events in the first book.
As one might expect in a court case involving both gang members and undercover police living in the dark world of the gangs, there are very graphic descriptions of the biker crimes; there is coarse language. Katrina must face what she has blocked in her mind, and testify in court.
Emotions run high in this book. Is Katrina really the innocent babe caught up in life with the criminal element? Or is her past on the streets going to trip up her testimony and let the bikers go free? Can she learn from these experiences? This book has so much to say, we all should listen. Rebellion, terror, drugs, murder, loss, lies and broken promises, all are there. I commend Eileen Shuh in writing on such difficult subjects in such a true and meaningful way.

In "Fatal Error" we meet Katrina as a 13 year old who has been rescued by the police from the gang and is now trying to save herself from the misguided being led by the uninformed. As Katrina sinks further into despair and mistrust, those who are supposed to be protecting her fail miserably to both understand and nurture the young genius. Motivated by the desire to justify their actions and protect themselves from responsibility they begin to see the child as the matrix of the problem instead of recognizing their own complicity in all that has occurred.
As Katrina ages and begins to mature she must face all the horror that has befallen her, take responsibility for her own actions and begin the painful journey to adulthood. Trapped between her fear of gang retribution and police prosecution Katrina must be her own advocate. With slow and hesitant steps forward Katrina tries to navigate a world that treats her as a responsible adult while she is still struggling to find her way through her adolescent years.
Katrina is one of the most compelling and haunting characters I have had the pleasure to meet between the covers of a book. She is not easily forgotten and will be with me for some time to come. This is a novel I am pleased to recommend to those who desire both a good story and characters who come alive.

With enough detail, background and emotion, it feels like you're reading a book by a well established author and, although I still recommend reading The Traz: Book 1 of the BackTracker Series, it's not crucial to have read the first installment to understand the depth of this book.
Span over several years, Eileen Schuh was able to make time seamless throughout by brilliantly entwining the characters and their lives through dialogue. Definitely a dialogue driven plot but with so much compassion for each character and story telling, the plot drove itself and the setting could have been anywhere.
Fatal Error: BackTracker series - Book 2 (Volume 2) is a perfect read for teenagers through to adult and is something any boy would be proud to read as it had gore, tension and gang discussions without being something parents wouldn't approve of.
Thanks for reading,

I actually gravitated more to the adult characters than Katrina. They seemed more prominent anyways and their struggles to deal with "raising" her and the consequences of their poor judgement were really interesting to me as a parent. I'd recommend the book to other parents. I think it will speak to them.
