What a great book!
Secrets of My Suburban Life was a fantastic read! It was an on-the-edge-of-your-seat book all the way until the last page! I would suggest this book for girls between the ages 13-17. It also had a very good life-lesson that you'll find out in the end! Overall? *****! (5 stars)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

THIS BOOK IS SOMETHING
Ren is somebody you may think you cant relate to but in reality you can... There are definite twists and turns in this book. Even though you may think you know whats going on you will soon find out the truth behind everything... Some evidence you may think can incriminate some while it actually incriminate another... When you get this book I would recommend clearing your schedule for a day you want to read this entire book because either a.)you wont want to put it down or b.) you will be kind if lost reading.Was this review helpful?

Just imagine living with the knowledge that J. K. Rowling, of Harry Potter fame, is responsible for your mother's death. That's the way Lauren "Ren" sees things. Her mother, a successful author in her own right, was researching for her latest book when the unthinkable happened - she was crushed by a pallet-load of Harry Potter books. <BR/><BR/>After the unfortunate accident, Ren's father decides they should leave New York City and head to the suburbs of Connecticut. Upon arriving at their new home, Ren finds herself attending an exclusive private school called Waylord. She isn't exactly welcomed with open arms. Finding friends just adds to the complications of adjusting to her mother's sudden death. <BR/><BR/>Perhaps it is her recent loss, along with an overactive imagination, that leads Ren into an unexpected situation. When she mistakenly picks up a classmate's notebook resembling her own, she learns that stuck-up, annoying Farrin is communicating in a chat room known as Sex World. The mysterious stranger appears to be an older man, and Farrin may be planning a meeting with him. The more Ren learns about this dangerous communication, the more she begins to suspect the mystery man could be someone she knows; that's when her own plan begins to take shape. <BR/><BR/>Even after revealing significant facts, author Lauren Baratz-Logsted keeps the suspense flowing in Ren's story. Teens will enjoy the twists and turns as Ren tries to get comfortable in her new surroundings, develop new friendships, and discover the identity of the mysterious FDA. In her "Author's Note," Baratz-Logsted references an interesting website with statistics showing how quickly and easily online predators can access information about potential victims. Teens are warned to be careful and to be safe.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
