Lily needs someone to confide in more than ever before as a spate of apparent suicides rocks her school – and her group of mates.
Benedict, her new online friend, is there for her. Lily finds herself opening up to him, telling him things she wouldn’t tell anybody else.
But who is Benedict really…?
Web of Darkness is a thrilling story about internet safety and whether or not you know who you’re talking to online. Lily believes her new online friend who says he’s from New York is a model because of his pictures posted on Facebook, however Benedict proves how easy it is to fake his identity by pretending to be Charlotte for another of Lily’s friend who then is driven to commit ‘suicide’. All of the suicides are later shown to be cleverly disguised murders.
This is a cleverly put together plot line which seems confusing to begin with however once all of the jigsaw pieces begin to stitch together it comes together for the big reveal right at the end of the book. I couldn’t fault it!
