Release Date: June 4th 2019
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Thriller
PRIVATE NUMBER: Wouldn’t you look better without a cheater on your arm?
AMANDA: Who is this?
The daughter of small town social climbers, Amanda Kelly is deeply invested in her boyfriend, real estate heir Carter Shaw. He’s kind, ambitious, the town golden boy—but he’s far from perfect. Because behind Amanda’s back, Carter is also dating Rosalie.
PRIVATE NUMBER: I’m watching you, Sweetheart.
ROSALIE: Who IS this?
Rosalie Bell is fighting to remain true to herself and her girlfriend—while concealing her identity from her Christian fundamentalist parents. After years spent in and out of conversion “therapy,” her own safety is her top priority. But maintaining a fake, straight relationship is killing her from the inside.
When an anonymous texter ropes Amanda and Rosalie into a bid to take Carter down, the girls become collateral damage—and unlikely allies in a fight to unmask their stalker before Private uproots their lives.
PRIVATE NUMBER: You shouldn’t have ignored me. Now look what you made me do…

This was a thriller full of twists and plenty of secrets that will keep you reading until the very last page! This is written in a dual point of view. I didn’t mind this. The pacing was fast which I like in a thriller. There was definitely plenty of suspense and a creepy vibe with the text messages. I do want to warn people that this book does talk about serious topics. I think the author handles it well but I still like to give warnings.
And I’m not public Amanda, either: beautiful, sharp-tongued, admired feared. Queen of the senior class. For these seven minutes, I don’t have to be any of those girls. I can just be me.
You may be the prettiest girl in school but things are going to get real ugly if you don’t start listening to me.
I get under the covers without brushing my teeth, then stare up at the ceiling and follow the lines where the paint is cracked. Just one of the many home repairs we never got around to making. If I look at it one way, it’s a network, a road map. Endless paths. But when I look again, it’s just a broken web. My life on display, all the threads torn apart.
