Wickedpedia by Chris Van Etten

"Wickedpedia is sharp as a well-honed knife. It's clever, modern, and yes, violent."- Amazon

Wickedpedia, by Chris Van Etten, was published June 24, 2014 by Point Horror, a division of Scholastic, Inc.

The internet has turned it's back on us. Quick go look at Wikipedia! Is there an entry for you? No? Ok, we're safe... for now.

When Winnie, Scott, Josh, Andrea, and Mr. Drick annoy Cole and Gavin, they have to get revenge. This revenge comes in one form. Wikipedia. With Gavin's help, Cole makes Wikipedia pages for the five including gruesome deaths. But when the predictions come true will he have the time to unmask the killer? Or will he meet the same fate as his enemies?

Van Etten creates an interesting twist to the average killer on the loose storyline. However, the writing could have been better. I guessed the killer early into the story causing the book to lose it's shock factor. Also, the characters were poorly developed. They lack diversity, personality, and depth.

I would recommend this book to anybody looking for a quick, easy read. This book is not the book to read if you are looking for a scary book. If you like R.L. Stine then read Wickedpedia by Chris Van Etten.

*I received Wickedpedia free from Scholastic, Inc via netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review. 
Just because I got it for free does not influence my opinions at all. Everything in this review is completely mine.
