I give it - 5/5
My review - Wow oh wow. I am a huge fan of Sophie, I have been for years and I was so excited when I got a proof copy of her new book SweetFreak and actually, I got it yesterday and read it this morning in one sitting as I have with all of her other books. They are just so amazing and I am so happy to read a new book from her.
In this book we follow Carey. Her best friend Amelia is getting bullied online by the user SweetFreak. But, after it a death threat Amelia and her family get the police involved and for some reason, they are pointing their finger at Carey. Carey has nothing to do with it but, with everyone blaming her and more things happening to Amelia she starts to wonder who it actually is. Carey decides to figure out who SweetFreak is before it's too late and someone could get hurt. Carey is prepared to clear her name and prove to people it wasn't her even though they all believe it. Can she save her friendship?
I love this book. It has so many themes in it. Carey is so sweet and she is thrown into the middle of this and has no idea why someone is doing this to her. But, she also sees a different side of Amelia. One that isn't so nice. With new friends, can she figure it out and maybe find out the truth about other things as well along the way?
I really enjoyed reading about Carey and her life. She has a lot to deal with, family and friendship drama and of course with boys thrown into the mix everything is going a little weird for Carey.
This book has important themes of cyber bullying, toxic friendship and more. It isn't out till August but I think everyone needs to pre-order their copy now. It is a fast-paced read that will have you gripped and wanting to work out who SweetFreak is and also shows how some people can change and what people online can do.
