Kids like this book more than adults. I think maybe "safe" thrillers for middle schoolers don't work so well for more sophisticated readers, so this book doesn't thrill me. Cary Amberson’s father is running for Governor of Texas, and for the first time, Cary is exposed to the lies and insults of a dirty political campaign. Just at a time when she needs him most, her boyfriend suddenly seems unsupportive. And suddenly she is aware that she is somehow involved in something more sinister than just politics because she gets threatening phone calls, and feels that she is being stalked. As she tries to find out what is going on, she becomes more isolated and gets herself into more and more danger.
