Rome—city of style, culture, food, music, and romance. But is someone sinister stalking Janey Gordon during her Italian adventure?  Sixteen-year-old Janey is all alone in the world apart from her trio of best friends, until she discovers a mysterious letter that leads her to long-lost family, thousands of miles away in Italy. So she heads off on a Roman holiday with a suitcase full of glam outfits courtesy of her fashion-addict bestie, Ness, and a list of must-see locations from her film-buff buddy, Em. It should be a time of sun, food, shopping, and cute guys—but there's someone shadowing every step she takes. Who is the sinister "Fellini," tracking Janey Gordon through cyberspace, and why is he posting warnings to her MySpace page? Living the sweet life can be a dangerous thing.

From Booklist:

After she loses her mother to leukemia, 16-year-old Janey believes she has no family left—she and her mother were estranged from her English grandparents while they were still living. But when Janey receives an invite to come stay with her long-lost aunt and cousin in Italy, she jumps at the chance. She will be living la dolce vita, the sweet life. And it is sweet! Soon she is enjoying her life in a cosmopolitan city, trying new fashions, and finding herself caught in a love triangle between two Americans in Rome. However, the specter of an Internet stalker threatens her safety with every move, warning her of a fatal car crash, the same thing that killed her grandparents. Lim (Mercy, 2011) writes this flight of fancy with a maximum of frivolity but keeps the thriller element alive via terrifying web-chat brushes with Janey’s online stalker. This breezy romance will hit the spot for any reader in need of something sweet but tart. Grades 7-10. --Courtney Jones
