SUMMARY: This sequel to Fake ID finds 16-year-old Chastity and her mother hoping to make normal lives for themselves in San Francisco. They are still pursued by a powerful, menacing figure from the past who is determined to reclaim a tape recording that proves him guilty of murder. Chass is a talented singer who dreams of having her own band. She witnesses, and is implicated in, the drive-by shooting of a famous young musician. Soon she is drawn into the dark underworld of a secret society that might have something to do with the crime. Teens with an interest in music will especially enjoy this suspenseful, action-packed thriller. (from the School Library Journal review)

OPINION: I enjoyed Fake ID, and was eagerly awaiting this sequel to find out what happens to Chass. This book was not quite as believable as the first one, but the story is fast-paced and very mysterious. And I loved the band Chass put together, especially the bass player. (She has a killer attitude and drives like a maniac!) The activities of the creepy secret club in this book seem worse than any frat initiation, and the mind games they play are outrageous. You will be kept guessing until the very end, and entertained by pages of car chases, narrow escapes, and dangerous situations along the way. If page-turning thrillers are your genre, this is a book for you. But read Fake ID first, if you haven't already!
