No Safety In Numbers is a novel of 263 pages in length. It appears to be the first book in a series, and I will personally be reading the next installment.
First off, the slogan on the front of the book is "150 Stores One bomb" and it is a big hint as to what happens in the book.
The novel goes by days (Monday, Tuesday etc.) for each of the seven days. There are 4 main characters. They are Marco, a teenage boy who is weak, Ryan, a tough jock, Shay, a Poetry fan who has recently moved to the area and Lexi, a technology wizz, who's mother is the Senator who has the mall under her order after the bomb threat.
On the back of the book, it has the following description:
It's just another Saturday in
a busy suburban mall.
But not for long.
This small description was what originally made me want to read it. At first, I thought based on the cover it had something to do with zombies, which, I can say, does not, but the novel did not by any means dissapoint me.
Dayna Lorentz is an author who I shall check up for future books to read. She truly made me enjoy this book. It combines teenage humour, complete with the regular teenage drams, including love, action, and prosperity.
The idea of being stuck in a mall is a good one, and not oftenly is it explored, but she has done a fantastic job in terms of the way she has presented it.
You will be on the edge of your feet reading this.
I rate this book an 9/10. I don't usually do scores this high, but trust me when I say it, this book is worth your read.
Thank You for reading.
