Hold Tight - Harlan Coben

Tuesday, October 13, 2009
 Tia and Mike Baye never imagined they’d become the type of overprotective parents who spy on their kids. But their sixteen-year-old son Adam has been unusually distant lately, and after the suicide of his classmate Spencer Hill—the latest in a string of issues at school—they can’t help but worry. They install a sophisticated spy program on Adam’s computer, and within days are jolted by a message from an unknown correspondent addressed to their son: “Just stay quiet and all safe.”

Meanwhile, browsing through an online memorial for Spencer put together by his classmates, Betsy Hill is struck by a photo that appears to have been taken on the night of her son’s death . . . and he wasn’t alone. She thinks it is Adam Baye standing just outside the camera’s range; but when Adam goes missing, it soon becomes clear that something deep and sinister has infected their community. For Tia and Mike Baye, the question they must answer is this: When it comes to your kids, is it possible to know too much?

All I can say about this book is wow. Coben certainly knows how to draw you in from the first chapter! This book has so many different elements that it's hard to even describe it in a review. There was a boy that committed suicide and his best friend Adam becomes withdrawn and strange. So his parents install a spy program on his computer and find out some serious things and he ends up missing. Meanwhile there is a crazy man on the loose murdering women. I promise that most of it is related, hah. I really loved it and finished it in two days. I seriously couldn't put it down. I've added his other novels to my list of must reads!
