    One thought on “Like Nobody's Watching”

    1. Smoothly written tale of high school bullying and vigilantism gone wrong, with a cyber/hacker twist. Ritchies does a good job crafting a believable cast of teenage characters and the escalating nature and unforeseen consequences of their efforts to help fellow students when they hack into the high school' new surveillance system. LIKE NOBODY'S WATCHING has characters that are easy to empathise with, a plot that has you wondering what will happen, and brings the suburban Wellington setting to lif [...]

    2. An interesting and thought provoking story about bullying and the problems with cyber surveillance in a school setting. Not too lengthy, I think many students will enjoy it.

    3. Beware surveillance society. #3wordbookreviewWill definitely be buying more copies of this for school.Short book, that moves along at a cracking pace, and is set in New Zealand. Explores the ethics of surveillance, whether it is for the greater good and what happens if it gets into the wrong hands. It also explores themes of friendship, secrets, bullying, and the use of social media. Would squeak in as a NCEA Level 1 text, though the main characters are in Year 10.

    4. For a debut, this YA novel is a treat! A great spin on the YA generation and privacy. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

    5. Any adult who comes into regular contact with high school students enters a world where there is an obvious disconnect. Despite our own histories, and empathies, it is almost impossible to know the current teenage mind, ethos or culture if you have left that state behind by virtue of the natural attrition of growing up. It’s for this reason that writing young adult fiction is so terribly difficult to do. So when a book comes along that gets it right, on all levels, it is truly worth celebratin [...]

    6. This book just didn't do it for me. The story line sounded promising, but it just felt like not much really happened. I didn't really connect with any of the characters - I don't think we were allowed inside their heads far enough to really feel what they were feeling. Getting teen voices right is obviously very difficult if you're not one yourself, and I just felt like this author didn't really nail it. Good to highlight the issue of cyberbullying and always good to have books set in New Zealan [...]

    7. I found this an excellent teen-read. It has a bit of teen-romance but it's more about friendships. The main focus is bullying, and what happens when kids with computer hacking skills set themselves up as vigilantes. The book is set in New Zealand, but is fitting for anywhere in the world.

    8. A challenging and thought-provoking YA story by a fresh new New Zealand voice. Recommended for secondary school libraries - many teens will identify with the themes of bullying and hacking.

    9. Surveillance video footage bullies captured your only trying to help when does it become too much? things can backfire on your good intentions.

    10. This novel reminds me of my third year work as part of my Bachelor of Arts degree back in the 1990s, with regard to Panopticonism. Jeremy Bentham was a social theorist and philosopher in the late 18th century who designed a 'Panopticon prison' idea. It was a round circular building where all the inmates had cells around the outside and there was a single room or tower on the inside through which a single watchman could observe all the inmates. The thing was, the inmates could never tell who was [...]

    11. A really great, fast paced novel. The characters were relatable and the story really drew me in. If you're looking for a new YA novel you should give this one a shot, definitely a must read this summer! #Helen
