This is the story of Izzy, who's mum to 12-year-old Nick.
Nick has been bullied mercilessly in the past and a year ago he was attacked severely enough to put him in hospital.
He's doing okay at his new school and has made new friends, and Izzy allows Nick to go to a sleepover at his friend's house. The next day when she goes to collect Nick, Izzy is horrified to find he's missing.
I did really enjoy this book, and I read it quite quickly. The plot moves quickly, and kept me interested throughout.

A stunning second novel from the incredibly talented, Samantha King.

Taut and tense throughout, a terrifying premise and executed masterfully - beneath the surface is a very cleverly worked story of family tensions, where are children are safe and where they are not and the dangers that lurk behind the mobile screens.
