Goodreads: A chance encounter with a celebrity, an impromptu video, and a shiny new espresso machine. It all added up to a juicy tale for 24-year-old Rachael Allen to share with friends. but when her best friend posts the video online, bizarre threats, home break-ins, and deadly gift from an obsessed fan follow close behind.
Kritters Thoughts: We hear the stories in the news about a celebrity having a stalker and we hear about the outlandish things they do and we hear about them going to court and getting restraining orders, but I have yet to read a book that took an inside look at how the celebrity feels and how the stalker justifies their actions.
Told through the eyes of the stalker and a girl who is linked with the celebrity, this was haunting to say the least. It was interesting to read what the stalker was doing and then to read her explain to a therapist her inner thoughts - I loved it. I am glad the author used her as a narrator, it made the book so full and I thought she wrote the stalker character so well.
I am so glad I read this one. To see the crazy of celebrity culture (I am not pointing fingers, I love me some People), but to see how people take celebrities and make idols out of them is very scary and a very serious issue. I loved this one and hope that Densie Webb is working on something else!
Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
