One positive thing to note, however, is that this book does talk about ethics and morality in regards to racy photos being spread in the internet plus its repercussions. I liked how it didn't come off as preachy - "don't do this" sort of thing. Although some parents in this novel were sort of like this and they had been predictable minor characters. Then again, I also didn't think that any questions regarding controversial issues in this book were properly addressed. This book dealt with a pretty complex issue so different responses from different characters were to be expected. I actually wasn't sure what to rate this but I did saw the plot twist coming from afar.
I have no excuses for this. Nothing in this book is okay. Apr 26, Marci Curtis rated it it was amazing. This is an addictive psychologic thriller that keeps you guessing till the very last page.

Sharp, unpredictable, and masterfully written, EASY PREY is absolutely brimming with multifaceted, interesting characters that you will love and hate in turns. Jun 27, Catherine Bukowski rated it really liked it. Following the story of these three teenagers from different time points leading to a huge scandal had me hooked. The ending threw me for a loop and I can honestly say I didn't see it coming. Gotta love a good twist. Overall this was such an entertaining read but also a very stressful one because I almost feel attached to the characters and I found myself worrying for them.
Thanks to Amulet Books for the free copy in exchange for my honest review. Leaked photos are a big issue in recent years. However, when it takes place in a high school and the owner of the photos is a teacher, that causes alarm. When only three students have access to these photos before they go viral, they have to figure out which one of them did it. We have three very different characters that could be to Thanks to Amulet Books for the free copy in exchange for my honest review.
We have three very different characters that could be to blame. The quiet overachiever, the star athlete, and the rebellious girl. All with their own secrets and potential motives. I think Lo did a fantastic job giving all of these characters their own voice and they were all well-developed. She also sets the scene so well — back in those hallways of high school! The readers get to dive into the topics surrounding privacy and sexting — which are very real hot button issues people are facing today. Invasion of privacy and then culpability are the more controversial parts of the story.
I will say that I was not expecting that ending! I really liked the direction that it went. I think Lo approached these topics very well and created an incredibly realistic story for us. I will be keeping my eyes peeled for more from Lo in the future! Jul 27, Michelle rated it it was amazing.

This is such an amazing story how tge author makes it look like such a simple story and then rips the rug out from under you in those last couple pages. Watching the end play out totally changes your perspective and definitely changed how I looked at these characters. A big moral question asked here is who is responsible when someone's privacy is broken? Why is the blame put on women so often when guys lash out? What's considered crossing the line? I got to end of the line and dropped my jaw in shock, but unsure of some of the answers to these questions.
It's a great sign when a book makes you question your perspective and reconsider your outlook. Nov 10, Jessica Lyn rated it liked it. It started off great, but it fell short towards the end.

Oct 14, Barbara rated it really liked it Shelves: Although I saw the ending in this well-plotted YA novel coming, it took me several pages before my suspicions were raised.
I loved how the book could have been torn from the pages of current events as it tackles nude photos, sexting, blaming, friendship, family dynamics, and privacy, all issues that are preoccupying many of us. And honestly, I could see just about any of the events described in this book actually happening. Moving back and worth in time, the story revolves around three friends-- Although I saw the ending in this well-plotted YA novel coming, it took me several pages before my suspicions were raised. Moving back and worth in time, the story revolves around three friends--Matthew Mouse Maguire, tech-savvy straight A student who barely rates a glance from his classmates, Drew Wilson, basketball player and best friend of the team star, and Jenna Bradley, whose nude photos posted online drew scorn and ridicule from her classmates and prompted a break-up with her boyfriend, Troy.
As the book opens, the three are meeting to discuss how nude photos of their law teacher, Miss Bailey, ended up posted online. Since they are the only ones who had access to those photos, one of them had to be the one to release them. But all three deny having done so. Flash backward to the events that led to this moment, and the author leads readers on a merry chase across the pages and through some of the more unsavory parts of high school life. She is careful to throw a few red herrings in the mix, casting suspicion on everyone even while driving the point relentlessly home that revenge is, indeed, sweet, no matter how long it is in coming.
If the poor teacher or anyone else is part of that collateral damage, then too bad. This book will certainly make readers think and definitely convince them to hold onto their own phones and computers, never letting them out of their sight.

I devoured it, thrilled not just from the story but from the results. Trust me, you don't want to miss this one. Sep 22, Nicole Sweeney rated it it was amazing. Review originally posted on The Bibliophile Chronicles. The story follows three students who are accused of leaking racy photos of a teacher on Twitter. The three students are completely different — the geeky brainiac who is whizz with computers, the popular athlete and the good girl turned rebel after her own racy photos were leaked online.

See a Problem?
It was an excellent twist and I definitely raced through this intense book because I was dying to know how it was going to end. I really liked the characters. The story was told in alternating points of view with each of the three students and it was fascinating to see things play out from different perspectives — it definitely added to the mystery surrounding which one was guilty.
The characters are much more than their stereotypes of the geek, jock and rebel girl and I loved that as the book continued you learned more and more about them. They are definitely morally grey characters and nothing is what it seems in this story. The book also really delves into the issues of leaked photos and privacy on the internet — something that really needs to be discussed more in books. Easy Prey is absolutely a five star read for me. Jul 11, Haley Shaffer rated it really liked it Shelves: As a teacher, this was a cringe-worthy read.
Who released the photos? Was it Jenna-who was involved in her own sexting scandal just a year before? How about Drew, the charming athlete known for collecting photos of scantily clad females. Or was it Mouse? Each character was equally flawed and likable. Jul 18, Elizabeth rated it it was amazing Shelves: Oh this book made me so mad but I loved it. Three alternating viewpoints on the consequences of posting indecent photos of girls on the internet.
I was a huge fan of Mouse and despised Jenna since the very beginning.

Things I Did Enjoy: This book sucked me in, probably because I am really into the cyber world and how it's changing our world. I loved the point of views, details, and real world application. It did a pretty good job at keeping me on my toes.
There were two things that I disliked about this book. I thought the timeline was kind of jumpy- throwing me back and fourth. Which I am usually o Thank you netgalley for the free advanced copy in exchange for my honest review! Which I am usually okay with except when its with multiple characters.
The second thing that drove me nuts was the amount of foul language and severity. I know teens use it, but I don't think it should be encouraged. I enjoyed my Netgalley copy. It sucked me in from the begining and the mystery kept me going until the the last page. I didn't see the ending coming until the last chapter.
I felt like it was clever! I love that Easy Prey drives home the point of a victim - not the culprit.
I think teens should read books like this to see the reality of what their internet actions can do. Its a crazy world out there and this book tackled one of the newest and toughest topics out there. Definitely worth the read! Confused by her atypical reaction, he doesn't kill her, but instead takes her along as he continues on his killing spree. Meanwhile, the authorities debate whether she's a victim or a willing participant. When I was just becoming a teenager, this movie came out on TV. I saw the previews and wanted to watch it but wasn't able to be home.
I would watch it from time to time. I just amazed me how brazing this guy is and what he did to his victims. I really felt so bad for them and couldn't comprehend someone doing this. When you see Shawnee Smith in her early and young years playing Tina Marie, you really feel a connection to her. My heart went out for the real Tina. Shawnee really makes this movie and drives it right through your heart. Kudos to Shawnee for bringing this role to life in such a way we felt like we were there. I only wish I still had this video. I lost it around I kept it all these years and loved it so much.
I wish I could get it again. If you ever get the chance to watch this movie, please do so. You will feel so lucky to have such an insight into this scenario. I only wish it didn't have to happen.
