If I could just get past the fact that the person who made the three teens do these acts of bullying DIDN'T actually know the kids, I probably would have liked the book a lot more but I can't. The motivation of Morgan Rouleau just didn't ring true for me - it required too big a leap of faith to get me to believe that she would a) bully three randomly selected strangers just to get back at three people who were mean to her at a theatre camp AND b) that she would have the computer skills to pull it off. It just didn't work for me and because of that I felt kind of cheated when the book came to an end. ( )

"I know your secret." In Cold Calls, Eric, Fatima, and Shelly all start getting calls from someone with a computer altered voice that blackmails each of them into bullying a particular student in each of their schools. The final event is to be dumping macaroni and cheese onto the head of each student during lunch on a particular Thursday. After running across each other in a weekend antibullying class, the three decide to find out who is making them ruin their lives and why.
This is a very good mystery, giving the reader insight into the personalities of each character, while sharing why each is being blackmailed. However, the characters are difficult to like because of what has happened in their pasts and how they each handled their situations. ( )

I enjoyed reading this YA story and am thinking it would fit best in the preteen to younger members of the YA community. Older readers would consider it lame. The other category of readers that might be attracted to this book would be the reluctant or non-reader crowd. They might be drawn to the subject matter, keeping secrets and being bullied by peers, and since it is a quick read, the length would not be a stumbling block. If your child is participating in a summer reading project, this, again, might be a good choice: fast read, contemporary theme, phones, texting, computers, selfies, pranks, kids making bad choices, struggle with religious training, family dysfunction, teenage love troubles. My thanks to Goodreads and the author for a complimentary copy of this book. ( )

FIRST LINES: The phone rang and he answered it. Later, when it looked like it was over, he'd think back on that moment & what he could have done different.

COMMENTS: Three high school students that attend different schools and don't know each other get threatening calls. Each one is told "I know your secret" and if you don't do what I tell you…your secret will be disclosed. They follow-through and carry-out what they have been told which is bullying someone they haven't had any former interaction w/.

These 3 recognize something, that they are really not the typical bully & come together & discover they each have been contacted by the same altered voice phone calls. This is a rapid read and keeps you turning the pages to find out how they will find out who is behind the calls and why. ( )
