Reviews

Gr 7 Up-Obee provides a sweeping look at the various possible forms of online networking. The book covers a mountain of material, but does so in a cursory manner. The author takes a mellow, conversational tone that encourages teens to communicate with their parents in setting online usage expectations and in discussing safety. Chatrooms and the likely accompanying bullying are discussed with an open-minded treatment of online access for children. Obee promotes self-regulation with respect to what's out there and provides resources for online support in the face of bullying...It is a great read for parents who are seeking to better understand their children's online world and bring themselves up to speed. School Library Journal While it is subtitled The Ultimate Teen Guide, this incredibly substantial and user-friendly manual is just as beneficial and appropriate for adults who wish to learn about social media and the Internet as it is for teens. This thorough guidebook provides practical information, constructive advice, and riveting facts about everything Internet related. It is not simply a book to be read but to be used and implemented. ... Share this treasure trove of computer wisdom with every adult, teen, parent, teacher, and colleague who crosses your path. VOYA

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
