This was a gripping story.  It is not my usual reading but I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I had to get to the end to find out how (and if) Dorianna survives.  There were a few twists as well as a lot of teenage angst to keep the story moving.  I felt for Dorianna as she tried to belong and took a path that proved to be rather destructive.  Her struggle between good and evil showed how strong her inner being was as well as her acceptance of the rest of her life.  I loved the ending.  Thank you for a great read.

I absolutely loved this fresh and fun to read version of Oscar Wilde's novel, "The Picture of Dorian Gray." The transference of the "portrait" to the medium of video uploads and the theme of pursuit of power and popularity via cyberspace gives the story even more relevance. We can all relate. We observe on a daily basis of how some users of social media present masks of perfection in order to garner narcissistic supply. To whatever extent we may feel empty or vulnerable, like teen outcast and would-be internet sensation Dorianna, we will be tempted to do so. That we can empathize with her predicament makes her an interesting heroine/antiheroine and adds to the delicious awfulness. No spoilers here, but this I'll say: Stine, once again, creates well-developed characters and a wonderfully engaging, suspenseful and well-written story. I highly recommend this book for adults as well as teens
