  • I have to say, this book is an amazing piece of YA work. This book is a very unique book as well and a book I have never seen before. I believe every teen should read this book: this book will open up your eyes to the danger of internet cyber-stalkers and how to stop them. This book teaches everyone a lesson, for teens and parents. ~ BookScene, which also named SECRETS/Lauren one of the top 20 books/authors of 2007

  • ...Ren comes across as a genuine teen with real problems...a good fit for middle school, while older teens are more likely to relate to Ren than to the 'Gossip Girl'-style heroines currently on the market. ~ Sarah Krygier, Solano County Library, Fairfield, CA for School Library Journal
  • Secrets of My Suburban Life reads like a journal—and a funny one at that. It reminded me of the movie Juno, which had a different sense of humor. The book took small little things and made them comical. Baratz-Logsted’s writing was very funny and easy to read, and held me until the end. I would recommend this book to the average teenage girl looking for a break from real life. ~ Couture's Fashionable Reads

It was a very refreshing change for this reviewer, mainly because of the main character, Ren, and for the first time, this reviewer actually enjoyed a book that was aimed at a younger audience. ~ Loves Romance & More

  • I liked this book a lot. I think that the plot line was really unique because I have never read a book about an internet sex predator. And a funny book at that! ~ Liv's Book Reviews
