I really enjoyed this mystery - psychological thriller. The blurb above pretty much tells you everything about the book except the ending. I pretty much gave up trying to write a review about the actual story since all of the minor details end up pointing to the ending and I would hate to give that away. If you are a careful reader, you can pretty much figure out "who did it" before the end of the book since there are several clues nicely placed through out the story. This one is geared towards older teens since there is alcohol/drug use, sexual situations and language.

I'll get the bad out of the way first. In retrospect, I think that I would have enjoyed this novel a little more if I wouldn't have guessed the plot within the first 75 pages of reading. Sometimes, when I do that, everything that leads up to the "big reveal" seems oh so very obvious. I also felt as though Cara was channeling her inner Bella Swan with her constantly convenient clumsiness. By that I mean she was too clumsy, but only when it seemed convenient in the story for her to be clumsy.

With that being said, let's move onto the things that I did like. The cover is absolutely stunning and I am in love with it. And looking past the obviousness for me, there were some very good plot twists and more darkness to the novel than I thought there would be. Zoe was a crazy character and I found myself spooked by her on more than one occasion. Clumsiness aside, I was also very sympathetic of Cara - even up to the bitter end. However, my absolute favorite character by far was Ethan ... and that boy went through entirely too much in this novel!

Elizabeth Woods is an amazing writer and I cannot give enough praise for how well-written and detailed this book is. She does an incredible job at fleshing out all of her characters, down to Cara's mom's cat - who I found to be a lot like my own spoiled fat cat. Like I said, I enjoyed this read ... I just guessed the plot too soon and it kind of spoiled it for me. This, however, is no cut toward the author - who's work I will follow because she's such a talented writer.

    Just...Wow(:

    I was reading the book thinking I had the mystery down packed and all of a sudden this twist comes out of no where which made me throw my book on the ground yelling "What The Heck!!". My friends was wondering if something was wrong and of course it was! I let one of them read it and she was sucked into the book. Once I saw her finsh it she threw it on the ground as well! The book should be a movie!

    I'm glad I bought it! (might be a spoiler)

    I really enjoyed the whole plot and every charater...something happening each chapter made it even better! The ending made me mad, but I loved the book anyway! Buy it---it's worth it!

    The big question: is Cara really crazy or is Zoe actually real!!!???

    Great Read!

    Well... choker was a great book.... one of my favorites to read! It was not that suspenseful because i guessed the outcome but it still kept me on the edge of my seat not knowing what was around the corner. The character development and plot was great... i really felt like i was there!I recommended this book to all my friends. It was a chilling mystery and i really do hope that there is a sequel! I would like to know what happens to Zoe and Cara, and i really hope that Cara proves that Zoe is real or she is really real! I recomend this book! I WANNA SEQUEL! HAHA!

    A great read

    Everyone has their limits. Some people can take more than others. But what happens when you push someone to the limit that even they don't recognize? What happens when you can't separate your mind anymore? What's real? Who's real? What if you can't even see what you are doing?


    Cara has been picked on immensely by her peers. Never have they left her alone. It is always something or someone making fun of her. After choking incident at lunch time instead of consoling her they ridicule her, making a joke of her choking. Cara is repressed and alone. Only to find peace in her best friend Zoe, who she finds one day in her room. Cara hides Zoe from her parents because they abused her. All the while Cara school mates, the ones that makes fun of her start to disappear. They find them, dead.


    O.M.G. This book was the bomb. It totally messed with my head and left me reeling. I mean seriously, I can't get over it. It was just so, awesome. Let me tell you, if you want a good, intensifying book read this. I have never read anything like it and was blown away. My mind is still messed up from reading it. There is a big secret, once figured out towards the end that left me gasping. Believe, you won't be disappointed.


    Throughout the book we see everything in Cara's point of view. This book was just great in the mystery area. It left things hanging so you kept reading but it never gave to much away. It left you turning page after page just wanting to know whats happening. Zoe was a friend who pressured Cara to change herself. And her love for Cara is one that I'd call obsessive.


    Seriously read this book. It is a good psychological thriller that will leave you wanting more. This book will make such an awesome movie! I can only hope that one day it will be one. So seriously, if you want a book that will really mess with your head, read it!!
