Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—While acknowledging the positive aspects of the Internet, this book addresses important safety issues in an A-to-Z format. Topics include blogging, bullies, chat rooms, hate crimes, instant messaging, online predators, phishing and pharming, pornography, privacy, social networking, and more. The information is detailed and easily accessible, with subtopics that supplement and add interest to the main entries and sections labeled "Teens Speak," "Q & A," and "Fact Or Fiction?" Graphs, statistics, and maps are included, along with a brief further-reading list and "see also" references at the end of each main section. A short list of hotlines and help sites concludes this useful and informative resource.—Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NE
