School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—This series tackles the ever-changing landscape of the Internet. Each book highlights an issue that students might face, such as online predators, protecting one's privacy, and determining a quality research website. Anecdotes are sprinkled throughout as well as technological histories like how Google and Wikipedia came to be. Both sides of issues are presented in an unbiased manner.
