Gr 9 Up—This series covers important and timely topics relating to online privacy concerns and provides information about how people can protect themselves from identity theft and scams (as well as other more general information, including some historical background about the Internet). There is lot of content here, with discussion about how online privacy issues pervade many aspects of our lives; an extensive index will assist with sifting through it all. An "Online Privacy Tips" feature at the end of each book is useful for condensing material. However, like "Cell Phones and Society" (Reference Point Pr.), the books contain huge blocks of dense text, an abundance of footnotes, and a dry narrative style; they also lack relevance for most kids and teens. Though these titles are possibilities for older readers doing in-depth research on online privacy, they aren't ideal for general purchase.
