High school junior Daisy Garcia has heard of other students getting in trouble for sexting, but she never imagines anything could go wrong when her boyfriend, Simon, asks her to send him a provocative pic. The perils of irresponsible Internet sharing and controlling boyfriends are some of challenges that surface in this addition to the Surviving Southside series, written at a fourth-grade reading level. A subplot about a school talent show rounds out the story. Readers looking for a brisk read about teens with real-life problems should be hooked by the crisp writing and high stakes. Simultaneously available: The Alliance, Dance Team, Deadly Drive, The Fight, Full Impact. Ages 11–up. (May)
