This is such an important and timely book. It's written in journal form as one teen deals with the disappearance of her friend after the two struck up an online friendship with the same boy. The boy turns out to be an online predator and things turn out terribly. I plan on reccomending this one to all of my students. The journal style is very engaging and I think that along with the plot line will hold their attention long enough to get this book's important message across. I wish this one was more well-known - my guess is the Canadian publication lead to it's lack of popularity. It should be on all middle school and high school library shelves.
