Review" Phantom by Laura deLuca

Book Description

 March 29, 2012
The “Phantom” was a musical phenomenon that Rebecca had always found enchanting. She had no idea that her life was about to mirror the play that was her obsession. When her high school drama club chooses “Phantom” as their annual production, Rebecca finds herself in the middle of an unlikely love triangle and the target of a sadistic stalker who uses the lines from the play as their calling card.

Rebecca lands the lead role of Christine, the opera diva, and like her character, she is torn between her two co-stars—Tom the surfer and basketball star who plays the lovable hero, and Justyn, the strangely appealing Goth who is more than realistic in the role of the tortured artist.

Almost immediately after casting, strange things start to happen both on and off the stage. Curtains fall. Mirrors are shattered. People are hurt in true phantom style. They all seem like accidents until Rebecca receives notes and phone calls that hint at something more sinister. Is Justyn bringing to life the twisted character of the phantom? Or in real life are the roles of the hero and the villain reversed? Rebecca doesn’t know who to trust, but she knows she’s running out of time as she gets closer and closer to opening night. Only when the mask is stripped away, will the twenty first century phantom finally be revealed. 

                                     My Review:

Like Rebecca in the story, I too am a huge Phantom fan. I caught myself a few times singing the song lines, instead of reading.

Back to the book, Wow just wow, I loved it, I like the characters some a bit more then others. I like how the Phantom story and Laura's story entwine  it is amazing, there is so much happening in this book it will blow your mind. 

I was very surprised with the ending never would have guessed it was this person that cost all accidents and even murders. GREAT book, I bet Phantom fans from all over the world will love it and any other too!

Well done Laura, well done!
