The Takedown

by

It would have been funny, if it just wasn’t.

Kyla Cheng doesn’t expect you to like her. For the record, she doesn’t need you to. On track to be valedictorian, she’s president of her community club and a debate team champ, plus the yummy Mackenzie Rodriguez has firmly attached himself to her hip. She and her three high-powered best friends don’t just own their senior year at their exclusive Park Slope, Brooklyn high school, they practically define the hated species Popular. Kyla’s even managed to make it through high school completely unscathed.

Until someone takes issue with this arrangement.

A week before college applications are due, a video of Kyla “doing it” with her crush-worthy English teacher is uploaded to her school’s website. It instantly goes viral, but here’s the thing: it’s not Kyla in the video. With time running out, Kyla delves into a world of hackers, haters and creepy stalkers in an attempt to do the impossible—take something off the internet—all while dealing with the fallout from her own karmic footprint.

    A quick but compelling read -- reminded me of a futuristic Pretty Little Liars with a sharp, witty feel. The main characters were all pretty unlikeable mean girls, which is a risk, but I think the boo...

    The Takedown is electric and sharp, a layered look at the firewalls we place around our image, both on and off social media. Wang’s storytelling is as stylish as the future she portrays. If smart, s...
