Review : Random by Tom Leveen

“Late at night Tori receives a random phone call. It’s a wrong number. But the caller seems to want to talk, so she stays on the line.

He asks for a single thing—one reason not to kill himself.
The request plunges her into confusion. Because if this random caller actually does what he plans, he’ll be the second person connected to Tori to take his own life. And the first just might land her in jail. After her Facebook page became Exhibit A in a tragic national news story about cyberbullying, Tori can’t help but suspect the caller is a fraud. But what if he’s not? Her words alone may hold the power of life or death.
With the clock ticking, Tori has little time to save a stranger—and maybe redeem herself—leading to a startling conclusion that changes everything… ”
  
I really enjoy this story. It was a quick and interesting book. I think the author did a great job by taking such an important topic and turn it into such an original story. It’s not my first book about cyberbullying and suicide, but i felt like this one was very different. Maybe it’s because we were place in the bully POV. The writer brings out some interesting questions about the whole bullying thing, made me think about the whole situation. Is everything all black and white or is there more to the story? I didn’t like Tori. She’s not a very nice person, and it was really, really, really, hard to care for her, but she was kind of interesting. I did wanted to see how she’d react next. The side characters were way more likeable. 

Overall, this book surprised me more than i ever expected. You really should read it!

Random : 4.5/5
