Publisher's Summary

Best friends Taylor and Sierra meet a hot guy in a chat room online. Both fall for Jacob's charms, but as usual, the more outgoing and vivacious Sierra overshadows Taylor and wins his attention.

Taylor's devastated - Sierra already kissed Callum, Taylor's secret crush, over the summer holidays. Life's not fair, especially when Sierra's around.

Moving quickly, Sierra sets up a date with Jacob on Friday after school. She asks Taylor and their friends to cover for her. Even though she's upset, Taylor is still Sierra's best friend and agrees to help.

But Sierra abuses the favour and calls to say she's going to spend the night with her date. She doesn't come home all weekend, doesn't answer her phone and nobody's heard from her. Taylor is torn. She doesn't want to betray Sierra by telling her parents but at the same time she's concerned for her welfare.

Finally, Callum convinces her to tell. The police are called and their worst fears are confirmed when Sierra's body is found miles from Melbourne a week later. Devastated, Taylor becomes obsessed with finding Sierra's killer. As clues emerge, Taylor races against time to try to save the predator's next victim.

What the Critics Say

"Gripping, devastating and terrifying. The scariest thing is that everything that happens in Risk is all too possible." (Rebecca James, best-selling author of Beautiful Malice)

    "Brilliant"

    An emotional roller coaster brilliantly weaved together. Highly recommend for not only young adults but anyone with young people in their lives.

    Story
    "Risk - Sensational listening!!"

    My View:
    Sensational! This is a book that all families should share with their teenage children.

    This book is so good if…if I had the money I would buy the films right to this book and make a feature film! Listening to this book I had a film playing on the big screen in my head. 

    The settings - wonderfully urban Australian (but this book translates so well to any city or town) , the accents, the dialogue – perfect, accessible and real. The characterisations – so credible you would think the author is writing about her own experience or that of her own family. The narrative – tense and adrenaline raising.

    I honestly believe this book has the potential to positively influence the decisions young people may make whilst simultaneously educating the adults around them. Cyber predators are a real threat – listen closely to this story, the message is clear without being condescending. The narrative is powerful, the moral dilemmas are real and contemporary, and the complicated dynamics of relationships are exposed. A great read!

    Schools should take this book on board, I would've loved reading it in high school, instead of the pointless books we did read! It could of taught me a lesson or two. Performance was amazing!

    Story
    "Wow! A must for all young people & their parents."

    I couldn't stop listening even though it is an emotional roller coaster story. As a parent an eye opener and 'what ifs', also the important topics one should discuss with your kids. A gripping & well written story. definitely worth the download. I shall also get my kids to listen.

    Story
    "A must listen!"

    This book captivated me in a matter of minutes, it stole my attention from the very beginning! I bought it for listening to the commute to work, but I went home from work that evening and listening to 17 chapters through. From having personally experienced a loved one being murdered I understand the grief of Taylor in this book and survivor guilt. It's something that the author has captured perfectly, this was comforting to hear.

    If you have young girls in your life maybe from 10 upwards I'd recommend making them listen or even read the book. It really highlights the dangers of online chatting with strangers. I will be passing it onto all the young girls in my life.. at 22 it reminds me of being in school when I had friends meeting randomers they met online in real life and sends chills to just how bad it could have gone.

    Really worth the purchase 10/10!!
