All in all, not a bad young adult novel by Diane Hoh, who is better known in the genre of teen horror/suspense books. Lucy St. Cloud is a teenage girl who seems to have it all -- friends, family, athletic boyfriend -- until a car accident leaves her in need of serious rehabilitation. Fighting to regain her ability to walk, she begins spending time online and ends up in a situation nearly as scary as the car accident. The cautionary tale against online predators rings a little cliche today, but the book was written in 1998, when such warnings were justified for teens of all ages, and once the author moves away from melodramatic description, the story moves quickly.
I remember reading this book when I was in middle school. It's well written and brings in a lot of today's technologies. I haven't read it in a long while but it stuck with me all these years. Great for a teen read or even adult!
