Pretty Twisted by Gina Blaxill

When Jonathan's girlfriend Freya moves to London to study music, he feels left out, and jealous that she's living the life that he wants for himself. He misses her too, and jumps at the chance to visit her when he can. Things don't go to plan though, and after a big row, Freya decides enough is enough and sends Jonathan away.

When he doesn't hear from Freya for a few days, Jonathan assumes that she's ignoring him. It's only when he discovers she has missed work and hasn't been in contact with any of her friends or family, does he realise she's gone missing. Knowing that there has been a recent spate of murders in the area, Jonathan sets out to find out what's happened to Freya. With the help of Ros, a young girl he meets in an internet chat room, he traces Freya's last known movements and makes a shocking discovery. Will Jonathan and Ros find Freya, or is it already too late?

Pretty Twisted is a great crime thriller for age 14 plus. Gina Blaxill has managed to create a plot full of tension, and characters that you can really believe in. Well worth a read.
