Description

Frances works the night shift at a local convenience store, dividing her time between restocking shelves and working on her art. Her routine is broken one night when Devin comes into the store. He claims to be the son of a famous local artist and offers her advice on her drawings. Although he seems to know way too much about her, Frances decides, against the advice of her boyfriend, that he is odd but harmless. By the time she realizes the danger she is in, Devin is completely obsessed with her and convinced that if he can't have her, no one will. Frances will be forced to use all her strength to escape from Devin.

Also available in Spanish.

Editorial Reviews

“It is a quick, easy read with a high-impact ending. It will appeal to teens looking for an easily digestible stalker beach read.”

— VOYA

“Simply written, with an emphasis on plot and suspense, it makes for a fine non-television alternative.”

— Monday Magazine

“This is an intense, plot-driven book that hits many familiar yet upsetting notes. The tension is meted out in a deliberate manner. The spare text makes it a strong choice for reluctant readers.”

— School Library Journal

"[The] danger comes through clearly in the story and will keep the readers engaged until the end. A good, fast read."

— SouthWestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group

“Though an easy-to-read novel, this will be a good read for any teen, and worth much discussion given that so many girls and women are at some point stalked. Be sure to give this to a young girl you care about.”

— Hi-Rise

“Suspenseful yet believable...The stalker scenario is realistically plotted and a good subject for a hi-lo book as this situation is one that may be (unfortunately) experienced by some young women...Recommended.”

— CM Magazine

"A quick read, Dead-End Job is a real page-turner."

— KLIATT
