Author Frank Nappi took on a very touchy subject in his book “Nobody Has to Know.” I had the pleasure to read the book and can say that I truly enjoyed the controversy in the book; it was a fantastic summer read for me.
Nobody Has To Know, Frank Nappi’s dark and daring new thriller, tells the story of Cameron Baldridge, a popular high school teacher whose relationship with one of his students leads him down an unfortunate and self-destructive path. Stalked through text-messages, Baldridge fights for his life against a terrifying extortion plot and the forces that threaten to expose him. NHTK is a sobering look into a world of secrets, lies, and shocking revelations, and will leave the reader wondering many things, including whether or not you can ever really know the person you love.
“A haunting, briskly-paced page turner that explores the darkest recesses of the human psyche while propelling the reader through an intricate series of hair-raising twists and turns. Nobody Has to Know is a masterfully written tale that is expertly told. Frank Nappi knows how to entertain the reader from start to finish.”

I am always up for a new genre to read, so when the chance to read “Nobody Has To Know” by Frank Nappi, I jumped at the chance. As a writer myself, it is always great to read new and unique writing styles. Nappi did a very good job writing about a controversial subject that is very true to life.
I loved how the main character was a smart English teacher; I went to school for English and that was something I wanted to do with my life. I think the main lesson you can learn from this book is that you truly need to be careful who you let into your life.
We are all human and we all get tempted by things that we shouldn’t give in to. Nappi tells a story about an intelligent man who knew the consequences of his actions, but couldn’t help himself and proceeded anyway. The book makes you think, and stays with you days after you read it.
