Product description

Product Description

'Gripping, devastating and terrifying. The scariest thing is that everything that happens in Risk is all too possible.' Rebecca James, bestselling author of Beautiful Malice

Taylor and Sierra have been best friends for their whole lives. But Taylor's fed up. Why does Sierra always get what - and who - she wants? From kissing Taylor's crush to stealing the guy they both met online for herself, Sierra doesn't seem to notice when she hurts her friends.

So when Sierra says Jacob Jones is the one and asks her friends to cover for her while she goes to meet him for the first time, Taylor rolls her eyes.

But Sierra doesn't come back when she said she would.

One day. Two days. Three . . .

What if Taylor's worrying for nothing? What if Sierra's just being Sierra, forgetting about everyone else to spend time with her new guy?

When Taylor finally tells Sierra's mum that her daughter is missing, Taylor and her friends are thrown into a dark world they never even knew existed.

Can Taylor find Sierra's abductor in time? Or should she be looking for a killer?

When a former police officer and paramedic writes a novel inspired by true stories of online predators and love gone wrong, you know you're getting the real deal.

This would have to be the best book I have read all year, which if you follow my blog you would probably see that this is out of character for me. Risk is a hauntingly beautiful, scary and harrowing. Risk is the story of Sierra and Taylor, best friends forever even their mothers are best friends.

Sierra and Taylor are messing around on chat rooms which we all end up doing in teenage years at one time or another, when Sierra meets a guy that she really likes, she gives this guy Taylor’s email address and goes home.

Taylor starts getting emails from this guy Jacob and they chat on line for hours with Taylor falling head over heals with him. The next time at school Taylor is about to tell Sierra her news when Sierra gets in first, she has fallen in love with Jacob herself and has organised to meet him on Friday for a quick date in the city. Embarrassed and upset Taylor refuses to go with her but still covers for her with their parents.

Sierra is never seen again. Taylor starts a website called Risk to teach other people the dangers of the Internet, hoping that it never happens again.

Risk is all about the dangers of the Internet particular for those who don’t understand how easy it is for you to be untraceable. It is scary how easy Sierra and Taylor fall for this guys grooming techniques and it is explained in the book without taking away for the story how he does it.

You will need tissues for this book, not only do Sierra’s friends have to deal with her murder they we also get a front seat view on how they deal with their guilt and grief in dealing with their own issues from the murder.

I could not recommend this book enough, especially for teens who think this could never happen to them. In the age of Internet, sexting and chat rooms. You never know who you are going to meet.

Risk, by debut author Fleur Ferris, is a book that my 14 year old daughter devoured, and then I picked it up and did the same thing. I cannot impress enough, how absolutely frightening and real the theme of this Young Adult book is. In a way it might be a little counterproductive calling this YA though, as I know many people out there have hang ups or issues about this genre. This is a must read, and no pre-conceived notions should interfere with getting your hands on this book.

Cyber safety is a big issue in my household, as it is all around this world, as I have two teenage girls, and a pre teen boy.. I also have just attended an extremely worthwhile session on this exact topic at one of my girls’ high schools – I was horrified at what can happen. What does happen! So when I realised this book is written by an ex policewoman and paramedic nonetheless, it fell into place. Fleur Ferris knows her stuff.

The way in which our youth are drawn into this online world, when their real life world is full of angst and insecurities, it seems quite understandable at times that young people would feel safe meeting a person in real life whom they’ve met online. These predators buoy up those in need of attention, shower them with interest, and provide that much sought after feeling of being desired. Of course, it’s not only young people that engage in this behaviour, but this story focuses on the issue of 16 year old high school student in suburban Melbourne, Australia.

The writing was impressive, it really did flow like nothing else, and there was no sign at all that this was Fluer’s first book.

Risk by Fleur Ferris is a young adult novel about a teenage girl that decides to meet up with a guy that she had only chatted to online, and after meeting with him she disappears. It’s a story about the dangers of the internet and how, young people in particular, are easy targets for online predators, but in addition to that, it’s also a story about grief. This quote really hit me: Something black is inside me, lurking just out of reach. I can’t quite grasp it, but it’s there, heavy, filling every crevice as I move. (Page 100.) I’m pretty certain that if I wasn’t already crying by this time, I was very close to it.

Ferris was able to capture reality and bring it to life on the page so successfully that at the beginning of the story I was cringing at the way Taylor and Sierra spoke and acted as well as the way that their feelings changed so quickly from one minute to the next. I was cringing because that was me when I was a teenager. I would gush and jump up and down and squeal and get excited over any boy that simply looked my way. As much as I’d like to think that as a teenager I spoke like the characters from a John Green novel (note: I’m a big fan of John Green’s books!), the truth is that I spoke and thought just like the characters in Risk.

I thought that the interaction between Sierra’s mum, Rachel, and Taylor was really well done because parents are human too, and their ways of grieving and their reactions to tragic events aren’t perfect or always what we expect. It would have been easy for Ferris to portray Rachel as forgiving and understanding in her grief, as I think that is the way that most of us would like to be in such situations, but it would have been much less honest.
