Choker narrates the haunting life of a girl named Cara. Cara is tormented in school after an incident where she chokes on a piece of carrot. She misses her old friend, Zoe, who she left behind when Cara moved in fifth grade. Cara's dreams come true when she one day comes home and Zoe is sitting on her bed. Zoe tells Cara she has run away from home, and needs to hide out at Cara's for awhile. Cara quickly agrees, but begins to regret her decision when a girl who had teased Cara turns up dead. When another girl goes missing, Cara begins to wonder if Zoe is hiding something... This book was extremely well written, and I was surprised that this was the author's first novel. The book was bursting with detail, and every word was filled with meaning. The book does contain some animal abuse, but it is in service to the story. The best part about Choker is the twist at the end. The twist was totally unexpected, but also very believable. The one thing that disappointed me was that there is no sequel! The ending is very open, and I really want to know what happens next. I would recommend this book to anyone who is into the psychological thriller genre, or someone who is looking to dive into this category of books for the first time. This book is beautiful and chilling, and is one of the best books I have read. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would definitely give Choker a 5!

This was a good book with a twist. I enjoy books that are not predictable, and this is one of those.

For me this book is a mind blower. Finished the book on a friday night so by the time I finished it I was so creeped out but it had an pretty good plot. Very different from the usual stuff.

This book was good until the end. It was surprising, sure, but i was kinda like "seriously. is that it. i've wasted my hour on this book". Not a satisfying ending. Author could've done a better job.

I enjoyed this book, and will tell you that I didnt expect the ending. For this being the author's first book, I was impressed. An interesting read that makes you wonder the whole way through, "Who did it? Why?"

I'm usually not the type of person that reads, but the summary really hooked me into the book. And i loved it till the very end, of course the end of 5 hours. I couldn't put the book down. Full of suspense:) Recommend it to all Mystery/Thrill seeking readers!

what a great book! full of suspense. also there's a big surprise at the end, very unexpected :o

It was a GREAT book. It was mind-blowing, mysterious, and it keeps you wondering. The ending was the BEST part. It was so unexpected. I hope there's a sequel for this book to see what happens to Cara and Ethan!!!!!!!
