Who R U Really?...Preview

About the book:
Thea’s overprotective parents are driving her insane. They invade her privacy, ask too many questions, and restrict her online time so severely that Thea feels she has no life at all. When she discovers a new role-playing game online, Thea breaks the rules by staying up late to play. She’s living a double life: on one hand, the obedient daughter; on the other, a girl slipping deeper into darkness. In the world of the game, Thea falls under the spell of Kit, an older boy whose smarts and savvy can’t defeat his loneliness and near-suicidal despair. As Kit draws soft-hearted Thea into his drama, she creates a full plate of cover stories for her parents and then even her friends.

Soon, Thea is all alone in the dark world with Kit, who worries her more and more, but also seems to be the only person who really “gets” her. Is he frightening, the way he seems sometimes, or only terribly sad? Should Thea fear Kit, or pity him? And now, Kit wants to come out of the screen and bring Thea into his real-life world. As much as she suspects that this is wrong, Thea is powerless to resist Kit’s allure, and hurtles toward the same dark fate her parents feared most. Ripped from a real-life story of Internet stalking, Who R U Really? will excite you and scare you, as Thea’s life spins out of control.

I don't do cover reveals or previews very often, but I make an exception today for Who R U Really?  Margo is a friend of mine and I had the opportunity to read an early draft of her novel and I am thrilled to announce that it will be published in September.  I haven't yet read the final version, and as soon as I do, you will see that review here.

For a chance to win an advance copy, head over to Margo's website.  She's giving away two!

You can learn more about Margo Kelly here.  You can pre-order your copy here.
