Summary

Bloomsbury presents Take Me with You by Tara Altebrando, read by Kate Handford.  

From the acclaimed author of The Leaving comes a new psychological thriller that challenges our trust in the electronic devices we keep close.  

Eden, Eli, Marwan and Ilanka barely know each other beyond having a class or two together. But when they are all summoned via messaging app to an empty classroom after school, they find a small cube sitting on a desk. Its sides light up with rules for them: do not tell anyone about the device. Never leave the device unattended. And then, take me with you...or else. 

At first they think it's some kind of prank or a social experiment orchestrated by the school administration. Still, they follow its instructions until the newly formed group starts to splinter. Nobody has time for these games - their lives are complicated enough. But the device seems increasingly invested in the private details of their lives. And disobeying its rules has scary - even life-threatening - consequences....  

This timely thriller probes our dependence on personal technology and challenges the notion that our devices are keeping us connected. The truth may very well be the opposite.

"[R]epeatedly surprising and genuinely chilling." (E. Lockhart, best-selling author of We Were Liars and Genuine Fraud)

"A blistering, plausible, paranoia-fueled tale about the monsters birthed by our digital footprints." (New York Times best-selling author Daniel Kraus)
