Hold Tight (Harlan Coben)

I am really digging this author. I listened to this book, but think I need to switch to reading his other books, except maybe the sports agent / mystery series, which sounds like it might be lighter reading.

Anyway, this book really revolves around the creepy interconnections between people in suburbia, along with the difficulties of parenting a teenager today. Key questions revolved around privacy (and the right to it, or lack thereof). Though I liked the way it was presented at most points, I do think Coben was a little heavy handed... readers aren't totally stupid, they don't need the characters to actually say out loud what the message of the book was. 

In any event, it was a good listen. Overall, I'd give it a B.
