Fifteen-year-old Zoe is new in town. The first person she meets is Beck, the leader of The Beckoners - with this ruthless gang of girls 'it doesn't matter if you beckon or not, they come calling when they want.'

Out of fear and curiosity, Zoe is initiated but then can't escape their intimidation. She gets help from unlikely sources, but is there time to help the tormented April aka Dog?

The Beckoners is a riveting, award-winning story about friendship and the importance of belonging. No teenager will be able to put it down. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 11/5/2013

    " This is a fantastic book for bullying read alouds. The characters are very believable and "Dog" is such a sad teen. The antagonist, leader of the all girl gang, is a very dynamic character. Look for it in our library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay Collett | 8/22/2013

    " The ending was abrupt and unrealistic, but otherwise it's a good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LibraryGoddess | 8/21/2013

    " This book starts out a little slow, but it is an engaging read after a few pages. Zoe, the new girl at school gets drawn into a group called the Beckoners and doesn't realize until it's too late just what she's gotten into. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rene | 5/9/2013

    " Bullying at its worst. Very uncomfortable and violent book about a group of girls who continually attack a fellow student named April. Very Good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amra Pajalic | 2/18/2013

    " The Beckones was a really dark real life peek into the world of young adults. There were scenes that were so painful and realistic I had awful flash-backs to my youth. The book deals with the way young people gang up on each other and how bullying develops. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claire Gerber | 11/23/2012

    " Glad my high school experience wasn't like this. Hope it's not like any of the students' sitting in my classes either. "

    " I read this years ago, and I don't remember much. I liked it then, so I suppose 3 stars is fitting. "

    " OMG. One of the best books I've ever read. Broke my heart, made me cry and, when it was all over, I wanted to start again. "

    " this book shows exactly what happens in some places. girls get bullied into killing themselves. this book really hits home for me. i loved the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 10/31/2011

    " Great teen novel about the impact of bullying at a Canadian school. Builds up the tension to a quite terrifying climax. Just one gripe though - where were all the teachers at the school while the fights etc were going on? Otherwise a gripping read - I read it in one sitting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rspeller | 10/21/2011

    " Gripping, heart-breaking, and rather like watching a train wreck. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebekah | 5/25/2011

    " i didn't really like it that much to be honest.. it was childish and its the same story , she wants to tell some\one but cant find time. "

    " I really wish her editors had let her keep the original ending. I get so angry when I read books where the dogs die instead of people. It's so cheap. I would love to see how the original ending was handled. "
