In this award-winning book the victim of a cyber-prank gone viral, Autumn, was forced to transfer schools–not exactly what she wanted to do as a sophomore. But what choice did she have when all her personal information was posted all over the web?
Determined to make the best of her situation, Autumn decides to reinvent herself as the outgoing, popular, not-at-all-shy girl she’d always wanted to be.
But even the best plans go awry and Autumn fails to change the old habits that had given her that shy girl reputation in the first place. So when she learns that her best friend, Sophie Rose, is transferring to her new school she’s relieved, until Sophie starts keeping her distance.
Autumn finds herself adrift without the support of her best friend. But when tragedy shakes her world she stops feeling sad. Now she’s angry–and she’s determined to put a stop to this cyber-torture and bullying of herself and the people she loves in this powerful and poignant novel.
“Gray Zone is an amazing read, and once you start reading it is easy to see. Not only does it shine a much needed light on cyber-bullying, but it is also a well written and entertaining book with relatable characters and a story that will keep you turning the pages. This is definitely a book I will read again, and it is a book I feel everyone should read at least once.” by Renee
“I believe this book should be on the shelves in schools. There are not many books that involve cyber bullying or contain a memorable story like “Gray Zone” does. I think it’s time a book about this topic needs to be added to the book list that teenagers need to read and discuss. Absolutely loved it!!” by Cayce Hrivnak
