The Lovereading4Kids comment

Diary account of a young girl growing up in San Francisco. All of a sudden her best friend becomes angry with her and Victor her boyfriend dumps her. Nothing is quite as it seems however and Cathy sets out to uncover the mystery behind why her life is suddenly going wrong. The writing is surrounded by adolescent doodles; sketches and cartoons making the book feel genuinely like the dairy of a teenager. Not only does Cathy's Book have its own website (there are actually two), the characters from Cathy's Book have their own phone numbers; there is a Cathy's Book MySpace page; there are Cathy's Book AIM Journal pages; and more.

Synopsis

Cathy's Book by Jordan Weisman, Sean Stewart

When 17-year-old Cathy wakes up one morning to discover a needlepoint near her elbow, her mother is typically suspicious and worried. But Cathy has other ideas and quickly puts them into action. In pursuit of her missing boyfriend (who she feels must be linked to the strange mark on her arm) she starts piecing some startling facts together which lead her into the dangerous underworld of San Francisco's China Town. Throughout her findings, Cathy keeps a secret journal and gathers many items of evidence as well as telephone numbers and websites - leaving it all for her friend Emma to find should Cathy go too far and not come back. All this evidence can be found, integrated into the book and also available to download online.
