The cover doesn't do the book justice!
Janice is a Canadian author and I hope there's a sequel!!

It was interesting to read a book set in my hometown, and to recognize landmarks in the story . Many of those landmarks are gone now; amazing changes have occurred in both downtown Edmonton and the U of A campus over the 13 years since MacDonald wrote this.

Likewise, chat rooms have all but disappeared since then (though they are coming back), replaced by "social media". The younger reader might have to do a little research to find out what this stuff was all about.

The book itself was entertainin

The second book I read by Janice ... it was good - perhaps a little weird ... but then isn't that the internet and chat rooms ... weird. A different culture. Loved her detail .. love Randy Craig.
