#BookReview: The Chaos of Now by Erin Jade Lange

About the Book:

Is it real if it happens online?

Life at Eli’s high school hasn’t been the same since his classmate Jordan committed suicide after being tirelessly bullied. 

Schools now have access to students’ online activities and students have less privacy than ever. Eli just wants to graduate—so he can get out of town, get away from his father’s embarrassingly young fiancée, and get himself a prestigious coding job. 

But Eli’s hacking skills get him roped into a vigilante website that—while subverting the school’s cybersnoops— seeks justice for Jordan and everyone else being bullied. 

Suddenly Eli finds himself in way over his head as his keystrokes start to have devastating consequences in the real world . . . This timely story from the author of Butter is a thrilling tale about the power of the internet, the young people who wield it, and the fine lines between bully and victim, justice and vengeance.

My Review: This book has a ton of  bullying, suicide, and cyber and more but the story itself lacked the depth that I like in my books.  This one just didn't work well for me at all and it was a chore just getting past 100 pages.  I kind of wish that I would have DNFed this one but I wanted to know how it all turned out and I hating looking at the ending.
