Text Game by Kate Cann-OPTIONAL

Cann, Kate, Text Game. Stoke Books, 2004. Pgs. 62. Language: PG (6 swears, no “f”s), Violence: G, Sexual Content: PG

 Mel can’t believe Ben’s actually dating her. Then she starts getting weird texts suggesting that Ben is cheating on her. What is she going to do? Should she confront him?

 This very short hi-lo book takes a real-life situation and helps teens to deal with it in a real way. Teen will sympathize with the main character and easily slide into her shoes. Although the plot lacks a lot of substance, readers who are dealing with similar problems or know someone who is will appreciate this book. MS, HS. OPTIONAL. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
