FLASHBACK FRIDAY (14): WANT TO GO PRIVATE?

By Sarah Darer Littman

Pub. Date: August 1st 2011

Publisher: Scholastic Press Buy: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound

From Goodreads:

Abby and Luke chat online. They’ve never met. But they are going to. Soon.

Abby is starting high school–it should be exciting, so why doesn’t she care? Everyone tells her to “make an effort,” but why can’t she just be herself? Abby quickly feels like she’s losing a grip on her once-happy life. The only thing she cares about anymore is talking to Luke, a guy she met online, who understands. It feels dangerous and yet good to chat with Luke–he is her secret, and she’s his. Then Luke asks her to meet him, and she does. But Luke isn’t who he says he is. When Abby goes missing, everyone is left to put together the pieces. If they don’t, they’ll never see Abby again.

My Review:

This is an extremely important YA novel that will leave you absolutely terrified because you’ll realize how vulnerable our children can be to online predators.

This novel doesn’t mince words, doesn’t try to be gentle. This novel is blatantly honest. Every parent, teacher needs to read this as a cautionary tale. I would much prefer younger YA read this simultaneously with a parent. WANT TO GO PRIVATE is an important book. Brace yourself – but read it! This book could save a person’s life.
