These are the words written on Tessa Waye’s diary. The diary that ends up with Wick Tate. But Tessa’s just been found . . . dead.
Wick has the right computer-hacking skills for the job, but little interest in this perverse game of hide-and-seek. Until her sister Lily is the next target.
Then Griff, trailer-park boy next door and fellow hacker, shows up, intent on helping Wick. Is a happy ending possible with the threat of Wick’s deadbeat dad returning, the detective hunting him sniffing around Wick instead, and a killer taunting her at every step?
Foster child. Daughter of a felon. Loner hacker girl. Wick has a bad attitude and sarcasm to spare.
But she’s going to find this killer no matter what.
Because it just got personal.

This book follows Wicket, a hacker. Her Dad had the same job and was caught so you can imagine how freaked out she must be; well... she's not. And that's what I love about this MC. She can be a bit difficult, but you know she's the hero when you're still rooting for her, in her uphills and downs. She's also got a mouth on her and I kind of love her for that.
As the story goes on, we find out a girl named Tessa has died. And on Wick's doorstep is her journal... with a stickynote that says "Find Me". Turns out Tessa's death was caused by someone, but I'm not going to elaborate about that. That big idea just turned this into a murder mystery of "whodunnit" even though, it wasn't a murderer... per se.
Romily keeps you guessing and that's what really makes this story stand out. She got me with the guilty person because I thought it was someone else. All her characters are pretty cool and have some kind of interest to them. The only thing I know that was a bit funky was the fact that sometimes, a little character was introduced but never talked about again after the particular scene.
I just know that I'm happy to be able to talk to such a great author. She's amazing at what she does and the amount of feels I got from this amazing book was just too much. Look out for this author on the NYT's Bestseller list because she'll make it there. She really will.
I graduated from Georgia State University with a Literature degree. Since then, I’ve worked as a riding instructor, cell phone salesgirl, personal assistant, groom, exercise rider, accounting assistant, and, during a very dark time, customer service rep.
So don’t let anyone tell you a BA degree will keep you unemployed.
