Top 8 by Katie Finn

Finn, Katie Top 8, 320 p. Point (Scholastic), 2008. Content: G. $8.99. While Megan MacDonald was away for Spring Break, someone hacked into her Friendverse account, said terrible things to all of her friends and broke up with her boyfriend via messages! Now she’s back and she has to pick up the pieces of her life, reconcile with her friends, placate her acquaintances and find out who did the dastardly deed. Of course, Megan did really say those things behind people’s backs, but who would hate Megan enough to tell everyone? Megan has some things to learn about herself while she’s solving her mystery. While Megan’s experience on the internet is kind of a sanitized version of cyberbullying, it certainly makes several good points. Especially about not talking behind people’s backs. MS – ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library Teacher.
