Teenagers in high school who are dealing with a full schedule, crushes and popular girls don’t tend to notice the eyes watching them from afar. Lindsey Morgan Brooks is no exception. Trying to be an adult at 15, and expected to be great by her lawyer parents’ standards, Lindsey Brooks has enough on her plate.
“Lindsey: Love and Intrigue” is a relatable book on many levels for teens: parents who expect success from their children in this ever-competitive world, watching an attractive crush ignore your existence and being stalked.
What’s not to relate to? Well, maybe the stalking, but we’ve all gotten a few creepy, anonymous text messages with cryptic meanings … right?
Fans of “Pretty Little Liars” and “The Lying Game” will certainly enjoy the tale of Lindsey and her chaotic life. After all, we all try to be a little too grown-up every now and then, and growing up means dealing with stalkers on our own terms.
