Excellent, thrilling book you can't put down!

Locked Inside is about a sixteen year old girl name Marnie. Her mother had died 5 years ago and her guardian is a man name Max. Marnie goes to this boarding school, she isn't studying as hard as she should be and ends up not doing well in school. She spends most of her time playing this game online with is guy identified as Elf. After her mother's death, Marnie hasn't really want anyone to get close to her, bascially like disconnecting herself from the world. She soons get kidnap by her teacher name Ms. Slaight where she also meets the guy name Elf in person. I don't want to disappoint anyone by telling the ending so read it to find out. This is an excellent book and I recommend people from ages 12 and up. I really like this book because the author is telling everyone a very important message. I can't wait to read The Killer's Cousin. I have read a lot reviews saying that it is an outstanding book even better than this one. Anyways this is a really REALLY superb book and I hope you read it, you won't be disappointed.


This was a fabulous book.I have read two Nancy Werlin books[Locked Inside and Black Mirror]and this is the best.Nancy Werlin,along with Lois Lowry,Joanna Campbell,Laren Brooke,and Laurie Halse Anderson,is one of my favorite authors.This book is sorta scary,and a little rough,so I don't reccomend it for young kids.But it is a fab book,and keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Werlin just keeps getting better

Nancy Werlin has surpassed her effort in "The Killers Cousin" with this gripping novel. The character of Marnie is both powerful and fragile - she is strong within her self, but she also feels the need to hide behind a false persona in the world of internet role playing games. The internet and the various activities you can get up to on the internet is a very hot topic. The way that the story twists towards the end is chilling - you are supposed to be able to trust the adults around you, not be afraid that they might be after you.I loved the way that Werlin managed to draw the two stories together by using a few of the same characters from "Killers Cousin". I had to read this book in one sitting because each chapter lead towards the gripping conclusion. Marnie is someone that leads you into her world and holds you there with a tight grip. This book is chillingly real because there are people out there who talk themselves into believing what they want to - even if there is no way that what they believe can be true.If you enjoyed the "Killers Cousin" then you can not miss this book because it reaches the same high level - and then some.

Always unexpected and gripping to the end.

Nancy Werlin's Locked Inside (0-385-32700-5, $15.95) is one of the most original tales to appear in some time: a wealthy but spoiled girl is sent to live in an oppressive boarding school after her mother's death, and tries to escape her surroundings via computer games. When she's kidnapped, it may be her ability to play which will make the difference between life and death. Always unexpected and gripping to the end.

A great read!

I couldn't put LOCKED INSIDE down! It's a great combination of suspense, romance and a mystery, too. If you liked THE KILLER's COUSIN, you're in for a treat. This one is even better!
