Lindsey, Julie. Deceived. Merit Press, 2013.
Elle's father is always travelling for work, and they are always moving to a new town where Elle starts a new school. For her senior year, Elle's father sends her to a boarding school. Elle adjusts to life at her new school only to discover that someone is stalking her and has been stalking her for most of her life. When her stalker makes his move, will she be able to save herself?
This book was creepy and bizarre and quite similar to The Name of the Star. I enjoyed it, although the suspense was more intense in Star than in this book, and the girl's capture/escape was not as scary as I anticipated.
Recommended for: teens
Red Flags: intense scenes involving a serial killer stalking a girl; language; alcohol use
Overall Rating: 4/5 stars
