While I do believe I own all of Donna Cooner's books, this is the first one I've actually read. Not for any bad reason because all her books have intrigued me but mostly due to lack of time and so many other review books, I couldn't get to hers. But I'm going to make it a point to change that because I really enjoyed this book and found it extremely insightful and relatable.

Cooner spends most of the novel in Skye's perspective but we also get to see inside the lives of her two best friends as w

love it😇😘😜😋
Social Media, Friendship, Mystery, a dash of romance, and some other topics. But they all meshed together really fabulously. It never felt to be too much, in fact everything just clicked together as one big puzzle.

I was already getting worried that YA was just not working for me any more. I have been reading less and less YA for the past year, or I should say, I tried enough YA and just couldn't get into them. So I was definitely worried this one, with such an amazing premise, would also be dis

This is an incredibly fast read. The summary makes it seem like it may be a thriller, but it's more of a contemp YA with elements of suspense. (Skye is only ever in danger of being humiliated online; she's never in actual peril.) 

But this book is about far more than the question of who's blackmailing Skye. It's about the idea of social media in general, and how some friends are actually pretty awful for you. These are issues that everyone deals with (teenagers especially but I know that I can so

I received a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

Although this story deals with a topic that is extremely relevant for teens, and especially for teen girls, it does it in a way that seems very dated. I felt like I was reading something that had been written in the 1970's, by someone who was well beyond their teen years then. The characters seemed much older than they were supposed to be, and the story itself seemed dumbed down, which gave the whole thing the feel of being written for an au

Cross-posted from my blog,

I traveled home to Florida during my winter break and I brought a bunch of young adult books with me. I managed to finish three of them during my trip, and they were all surprisingly solid picks. All three came from my school's book fair, so my main reason for picking them up was to preview them for my students; it was an added bonus that I legitimately enjoyed them myself as well.

Screenshot was probably the book my students were most excited t

3.5 Stars for this one.

Asha, Emma, and Skye have been best friends for years, but things have been different lately. Skye is only worried about landing an internship with the senator, Emma is focused on screenwriting, and Asha is obsessed with posting things of the social media platform ChitChat.

At Asha's birthday slumber party, Skye tries on Asha's lingerie as a joke, but is upset to find Asha recording her. The worst part is that she broadcasted it live and can't take it down for fifteen minut

I was sent a free uncorrected proof of this book courtesy of a giveaway here on Goodreads. :-)

This YA novel was a quick read and I enjoyed this story of three friends, each dealing with their own major issues. The main characters are high school juniors and seniors and I would recommend it for middle school/junior high to high school readers.

Kids are growing up now with technology at their fingertips and don't always realize the impact of sharing their lives online with strangers. The main them

Screenshot is an excellent book with lots of drama. This girl named Skye goes to a slumber party with two of her best friends. They were being goofy and one of her friends takes an embarrassing video of Skye and posts it on ChitChat. ChitChat is an app that is almost like Snapchat or Instagram, but you can't delete photos right away. After 15 minutes went by they could delete the embarrassing video. But not in time because someone took a screenshot of the video and is blackmailing Skye! How will ...more

This book was amazing!

I finished it in 4 days, I gave myself a week! I couldn't put it down!!! I am beyond thankful for the message in this book. Social media has taken many lives and deceived many, and it is important that we realize that pictures are merely that—pictures! I have dedicated myself to commit my social media presence to honesty...making it an extension of myself and not a totally different person. I am happy the MC in this book grasped that concept and ran with it! Put your phones

I really liked this book. It was intriguing and I just kept wanting to know what the blackmailer's next move was. Basically, this book is about a girl named Skye who had gotten sent a very embarrassing picture of herself. The blackmailer was using it to control and make her do certain things or actions. At first, it was just little things the Skye wouldn't want to do but then (SPOILER) she was wearing a prom dress to an interview! (DONE) I didn't love the ending but it was still an awesome book!

It was so refreshing to read a book written by another teacher. It makes me believe that I can complete and publish my own YA books some day too.
This book is very pertinent and I cannot wait to share it with my students. The messages are positive and the characters and plot are engaging. The only issue I had was the switch in voice between Skye's chapters being in first person and all the others in third person limited. It was jarring. Other than that, this was an excellent, fast-paced contempo

This was a very OK book. The main character made some stupid decisions. The ending was pretty obvious. And I don't understand when mixed perspective became a thing--some chapters are written in first person from the main character's point of view, but others are in third focused on specific other characters. I found this mixed perspective weird and rather annoying.

Positives: good messages about social media and being careful about what you're posting online. Good ideas about having goals and hav

Skye has the perfect life and via social media.

Until an embarrassing video is posted online. Skye thinks that humiliation has ended when her frenemy removes the post, only to be blackmailed by someone who took a screenshot of the video.

Social media anxieties. Bullying. Harassment. Self-image. Privacy. All important issues handled deftly in a manner middle readers will identify with and respond to.

this was a prize book. if there were ten stars this book would be worth it. everyone who is on social media should read this book. looking and being are two different things trying to see what is real may not always be in a picture or caption # sometimes your friends see what you need before you. people only post what makes them look good. seeing what is behind the picture is really hard sometimes. this book is a fast read and makes you think about what is on social media.

This book is a great book that I really enjoyed and loved. The book was very interesting with many plot twist. I truly have no idea what the ending was! Usually I like to see the end first or hear a spoiler bc I like to know beforehand. This time I didn’t and the surprise was good! I truly loved how the energy was through, but I didn’t really like the pages for each character. I recommend this book!

This was a quick contemporary perfect for a beach read. It dealt with difficult topics of self image, social media, and our fascination with posting our lives online. I found this book and topic to be realistic for teens to read and understanding. Overall, there wasn't anything super impressive about this book, but for what it was I enjoyed it!

The book was decent and the descriptions were fine but in my opinion the mystery was not something you could solve as you went along reading. There were no hints (barely). It was still suspenseful and kudos to Donna Cooner.

This was an awesome book for teenagers especially to help them learn about social media safety. Your privacy is important and this book shows what can happen if your privacy is exposed. This book is also entertaining and very interesting.
