About the Book: Twittercide: the killing of one human being by another while the victim is in the act of tweeting.
Call me crazy, but I figured writing for the "Herbert Hoover High Homepage" would be a pretty sweet gig. Pad the resume for college applications, get a first look at the gossip column, spend some time ogling the paper's brooding bad-boy editor, Chase Erikson. But on my first big story, things went . . . a little south. What should have been a normal interview with Sydney Sanders turned into me discovering the homecoming queen-hopeful dead in her pool. Electrocuted while Tweeting. Now, in addition to developing a reputation as HHH's resident body finder, I'm stuck trying to prove that Sydney's death wasn't suicide.
I'm starting to long for the days when my biggest worry was whether the cafeteria was serving pizza sticks or Tuesday Tacos. . . .
My Thoughts: This book is the follow up to Deadly Cool (which I reviewed yesterday.) I love books like this... where each book in the series has the same characters and what not but each story is different. The killer in Deadly Cool was found and now we have a whole new murder mystery on our hands. (Sidenote... the fatality rate at this school is not promising! Transfer and transfer NOW!)
The things I loved in Deadly Cool hold true for Social Suicide. It's fun and quirky and Hartley is awesome. What I really noticed in this one was how much I loved Sam and Chase, two of the supporting characters. They are so great and add so much to Hartley's story. I also enjoy the chemistry between Hartley and Chase :)
A delightful and quirky read that is great for summer! Don't miss this series!
