Risk


Title: Risk
Author: Fleur Ferris

Two friends meet a boy in a chat room online, Taylor is captivated by Jacob and can't believe they seem to have so much in common! Before she knows it though, her friend Sierra has arranged to meet this boy downtown the following day. Taylor is devastated that her best friend can do that to her. What follows is a tragic story. S
ierra wants Taylor to cover for her and say she is staying overnight at her place, as her Mum has effectively grounded her. Taylor agrees, but Sierra doesn't come home and is still missing 2 days later.
When Taylor finally tells Sierra’s mum that her daughter is missing, Taylor and her friends are thrown into a dark world they never even knew existed. The deep web, where predators are waiting for girls like Sierra.
This book should be compulsory reading by all young people who are out there chatting on the web - beware, all is not what it appears. Also the families of the two girls and the effect this situation has is so sad.
This book is a debut novel by an ex policewoman and had me captivated from the start. It is set in Melbourne so the landmarks will be familiar to all who read it. I encourage everyone to read this amazing book, and take on board the situation within, and think twice before befriending someone online who is not what you think they appear to be.
5 stars from me!

Atlas


Title: Atlas
Author: RuFuS

This C.D has 11 songs on it. The light/dark deluxe edition of Atlas has 2 discs on it. The second disk has the same songs but some of the songs are remixes.
The lead vocal in in RUFUS is: Tyrone Lindqvist. I would give the song called 'Take Me' a: 10/10.
The library doesn't have Atlas, but you can buy the C.D at JB- HIFI.
How good was it? Fantastic
