Environmental Risk Assessment: A Toxicological Approach
Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. Jul 16, Suzanne rated it it was amazing Shelves: owned , aussie-author , aww. Risk , by debut author Fleur Ferris , is a book that my 14 year old daughter devoured, and then I picked it up and did the same thing. I cannot impress enough, how absolutely frightening and real the theme of this Young Adult book is. In a way it might be a little counterproductive calling this YA though, as I know many people out there have hang ups or issues about this genre. This is a must read, and no pre-conceived notions should interfere with getting your hands on this book.
Cyber safety is Risk , by debut author Fleur Ferris , is a book that my 14 year old daughter devoured, and then I picked it up and did the same thing.
Cyber safety is a big issue in my household, as it is all around this world, as I have two teenage girls, and a pre teen boy.. What does happen! So when I realised this book is written by an ex policewoman and paramedic nonetheless, it fell into place. Fleur Ferris knows her stuff.
These predators buoy up those in need of attention, shower them with interest, and provide that much sought after feeling of being desired. It was devastatingly real, from teen emotions spiralling up and down, parental anxiety and family bereavement interwoven with endless points of terror, as we realise that gorgeous Sierra may not just be having a bit of fun meeting a hot guy that has shown her some online attention.

We are left speechless as her best friend Taylor inevitably has a role to play in this awful chain of events as they unfolded. Thank you to my friend Richard who quietly and thoughtfully encouraged me to read this book, I hope so many others out there will do the same and read this topical and important novel. Those who have contact with young people need to pick up this book and start the conversation.
I cried a lot last night as I finished this book. That never happens to me. Australian schools need to add this to their reading lists. I think big things might be instore for her. I for one cannot wait. View all 37 comments. Jun 01, Deanna rated it really liked it. I'm very interested in social media and the influence it has on society, especially the younger generation. Unfortunately, the only format available to me in Canada was audio.
It wasn't looking like it was going to be released in Canada anytime soon, so I went for it and purchased the audio and I'm glad I did. Taylor and Sierra have been best friends for years. However, Taylor is often f 4. However, Taylor is often frustrated as it seems like Sierra gets almost everything she wants. Sierra and Taylor have been spending time in chat rooms lately.
One day they start chatting with a new guy they meet online. His name is Jacob Jones. Sierra decides that she wants to meet Jacob irl in real life and begs Taylor to cover for her and to say she's with her. Taylor grudgingly agrees and the date is set. As the day gets closer, Sierra's excitement builds while Taylor starts to feel more and more annoyed. However, she still agrees to cover for Sierra. When Taylor first hears from Sierra on Friday evening, Sierra tells her everything is going great and she will contact her again later.
But she doesn't call Taylor later. She doesn't come back the next day either. Soon Taylor is terrified that something horrible has happened and decides to tell her mother. Soon Sierra's parents are involved and so are the police Where is Sierra? It's scary because these situations really happen. I remember being a teen, I felt invincible. Teenagers are extremely impulsive and that's just part of their nature. So we have our impulsive teenagers and social media where they can potentially make a split second decision to do something that can change their lives.
My daughter seems to handle social media fairly well but she's not perfect. There has been times where she's come to me and said "I'm so embarrassed that I posted this! Luckily nothing scary but still, I can see the how quick they are to make decisions both good and not so good. I've seen girls that post their cell numbers frequently on these public sites and it's terrifying because there are many online predators out there.
I know we can't live in a bubble or be scared all the time but we do have to be much more cautious about the information we are giving out online.

There are so many apps and chat things that makes it hard to keep up, but we can learn. We may say no Facebook, Snapchat, or Instagram but there are probably fifteen other ways that our children can talk to someone if they really want to.

Risk by Fleur Ferris
I would love to have read a physical copy of this novel but the audio-book was very good. The narrator was excellent and I had no problems keeping up. I thought this novel was very well written. Although it is a Young Adult novel, I still found it very interesting and informative. The plot was good, and it had some very important messages. I highly recommend this book, especially to those with children that use Social Media. I'm really looking forward to this authors next book. View all 65 comments.

Risk is a novel about a girl named Taylor, whose best friend, Sierra goes missing because she falls in love with a guy she met online.
Sierra was perfectly comfortable talking to this stranger online, shares personal details with him, and eventually meets up with him in person. Photos can be edited to look like somebody else, facts can be embellished or completely made up and the online persona can be completely different to the one in real life. Taylor spends most of Risk trying to come to terms with what happened to Sierra and strives to bring justice to the man behind the screen who took Sierra.
The characters were well-rounded and felt realistic and the teenagers in particular, spoke and behave very realistically too. I really enjoyed Taylor as a character, she was clearly battling depression in the aftermath of her friend going missing and yet she was still so full of determination and resolve. Taylor had a lot of self-esteem issues which admittedly, got a little annoying at times, however I still really loved her as a character and especially her relationship with her mother.
Sierra was a bit annoying. She was seriously so incredibly selfish and just unlikeable, yet you still mourn for her throughout the novel because Taylor is written so well.
