Loved this book since high school. My librarian ordered it for me back then and I lent it out to someone and never got it back. I have a new copy now. I still haven't re-read it yet. Everytime I go to read it again the whole story flashes through my mind, including the visuals my mind made up to go with it back in high school. Still a great story and still hits a little too close to home in terms of comparisons between Skye and girls I was friends with back then.

I had read Shattering Glass and What happened to Cass McBride?. I liked it because Gail Giles does a great job of telling a story with out it just going on and on. Also, as you get to the end of the book she just does a great job of wrapping it up and getting it done. It is a quick read! She doesn't was time in getting to the point of the story. Plus if you know someone who is a reluctant reader her books are fast paced and short. As a librarian, I find most of our students cringe or shy away from books that are 400 + pages.

I love reading this author, and for some reason, our local library didn't carry this one. So I was happy to find it and buy it.

I loved this book. It is one of my favorites now. I just couldn't stop reading it once I started. Some parts of it were kinda ify but still a great read. Many teens can probably relate to it much as I have.

This is the second book I have read of Giles and like the previous one this too leaves you gasping for more. Matt is a high school senior who is not one of the popular students. Barely any one notices him, except his two similar personality friends Jeremy and Ken. Then one day the school slut and goth girl Skye begins to notices him and want him as her boyfriend/lover. They both keep their affair a secret for different reasons which is eventually layed out as the book progresses. As you start in on the first few pages you get curious to Skye motives, is she setting him up for a big joke to the rest of the school in a school dance party or is it possible she may really like him. This book will have you speed reading to see what happens next. As with her last book I did not like how it ended and here she continues the trend of leaving you the reader hanging. When you read the book you will see why I have said this. With that in mind though, the characters are well written and their thoughts are truely believable that these could be teenagers we the audience know. Great read. Get ready for a banger ending.

I devoured "Playing in Traffic" in one sitting. I enjoyed it just as much if not more than Gail Giles' previous release, "Dead Girls Don't Write Letters." Once again, Giles has written a novel about the relationships of teenagers and their families which is thought-provoking without being preachy.

What happens when the bad girl goes for the good boy? The girl is Skye, whose reputation has been sullied over the years in high school; the boy is Matt, who thinks he is invisible to everyone but Katy, his likeable, quirky younger sister. They attend the same high school but never speak - until she starts seeking him out.

When Skye begins leaving notes for Matt to meet her privately, he can't resist. When she demands that their relationship stay a secret, he can't protest. When her requests turn sinister, he can't pull away.

This short but sweet book is a page-turner. If you enjoy other psychological teen thrillers such as Amadine by Adele Griffin and Give a Boy a Gun by Todd Strasser, you will want to read Playing in Traffic.
Gail Giles impressed me with Shattering Glass, and I was hoping for something like that with Playing in Traffic. Even though this book didn't wow me as much as Shattering Glass, it kept me enthralled and waiting for the next event.

Most interesting in the book is not the "dangerous" relationship between main character Matt and Goth-girl Skye, but rather it's the bond between Matt as a brother and his younger sitster Katy (who he finds out is only his half sister). When Katy discovers the truth and that Matt knew all along, the emotion Giles has built leaves an emptiness in the pit of your stomach.

Another element that deserves applause is her credible, thrilling, and close to over-the-top ending. Definitely worth the read.
