Carly never meant to become a stalker. She just wanted to find out who Brian started dating after he dumped her. But a little harmless online research turns into a quick glance, and that turns into an afternoon of watching. Soon Carly is putting all of her energy into following Brian’s new girlfriend — all of the sadness she feels about her mom’s recent breakup, all of the anger she feels over being pushed aside by her dad while he prepares for his new wife’s new baby. When Carly’s stalking is discovered in the worst possible way by the worst possible person, she is forced to acknowledge her problem and the underlying issues that led to it.
Let me start by saying, that I was excited for Stalker Girl, since I heard about it. I knew that I would either love this book or I would hate it. Luckily I wasn't disappointed and could actually relate to Carly. I mean I have been curious about what an ex-boyfriend was up to and glanced at their facebook once or twice, but I have never went as far Carly did. Carly was vunerable, because she though that she loved Brian. Sadly he didn't feel the same way. I also love that Graham flashed back to Carly and Brian's relationships, and told you how it happened. The plot was exciting and kept on surprising me. Also, it is one of the most original books that I have read in a while. It is not often that you read about a book that is based on stalking. Also, Graham surprised me with this book. I have never read any other of her books, but I plan to. Stalker Girl is about first love and how quickly it can be twisted by jealousy and fear. I recommend this book to fans of contempary fiction.


  1. Awesome review! :) Sounds like a great book!

  2. Great review! Really sounds like a good read. I've always wondered if girls actually do stuff like that. I've always wanted to but have been afraid I'll be found out. I'm not gutsy! Lol


  3. I've read so many great things about this book, but I honestly didn't like it much. It's one of the few books that I didn't like so much that I didn't review it, but I'm glad to hear that I'm in the minority with this one.


Thanks for visiting. Every comment creates a smile.
