If reading as a warning story I recommend parents read this first before giving to your child. It's a great guide for adults how to help their children avoid becoming vulnerable emotionally. You don't need the lock down on children's internet usage. You need to listen and talk your children. Give them the support and love they need so they don't need to go looking for it somewhere else.
I can see her getting more and more obsessed with Luke and being by her computer. It is so hard to watch her giving up things in real life, friends and grades, all because she is addicted to Luke, to feeling special, to being his girl. I so wished that the story could have gone differently... That she didn't isolate herself from her best friend since 2nd grade Faith, or cute and flirty while very nerdy Billy. She just didn't realize what was in front of her.
Speaking of Faith and Billy. I loved the secondary characters in this book. Their depth and kindness and sincerity. Faith is not perfect.. she doesn't realize that Abby feels left behind when they all of the sudden don't have classes together, and Abby feels replaced by a new friend, Grace and the drama club that Faith joins. But Faith loves Abby, and is and has been there for her. And Billy is so sweet, nerdy and funny. I LOVE characters like him. He isn't broody, or super hot, he is a normal sweet guy who sees the good in Abby, that she is pretty and funny, and smart but he has been too shy until it was too late and she was wrapped up in Luke.
I did not want to put this book down, and I kept rooting for Abby to open her eyes, and wishing that I could pad the ground for her for her inevitable fall into danger.
I also really appreciated the other pov and what it brought to the book. It really showed how others saw Abby and how it effected them.
Bottom Line: Powerful book where I was sympathetic to the main character.
Abby isn't the most of inspiring characters - she's quite shy and negative about herself, and lacks the confidence of her best friend, Faith, that high school will be the best years of their lives. And when she starts talking to a guy in a teen chat room about music, her problems at school and with her best friend, she immediately feels a connection to him. But those characteristics are exactly what makes this story so realistic - a confident, popular girl just wouldn't have felt right.
Abby's sister Lily is the exact opposite - snarky, opinionated and popular, their relationship really sets up the family dynamic, and without a doubt Lily was my favourite supporting character. One character I really didn't like was Faith's boyfriend, Ted. I found him to be quite unkind considering that Abby had been Faith's very best friend for years, and honestly if I was Faith I would have told him to piss off.
Want to Go Private? is split into three sections - Abby's perspective, the perspective of her family and friends after she goes missing, and the ending.
The first section really grabbed me, especially through the relationship development phase. As a reader I could see some very disturbing actions from Luke's side, but as Abby was completely wrapped up in their little world it was like watching a car crash.
The second part told from multiple perspectives is where I lost a little interest - and not because I didn't want to know their stories, which I think were as equally important, but because there's very little insight into what is actually happening with Abby. On the other hand, I can understand what the author was trying to do in writing the story this way, as this book is already quite explicit and adding that perspective would have made for an incredibly disturbing read.
The ending is sweet but I was left wanting a little bit more as not every loose end is tied up, and it also at times seemed a little fairy-tale-ish but the overall message is incredibly well presented.
I can imagine that some readers would find this book unrealistic in a way. After all, in this day and age, what teenage girl would start chatting with a stranger in his late twenties and agree to meet him to piss her parents off? But that also made it far more realistic, because the psychology behind it was so convincing.
