This book is a wonderful learning book for middle grade readers! It’s an easy-to-read chapter book that tells a story and teaches the dangers of our connected electronics.
Alicia and her friends love to play Tully Town, an online game where they earn game money to buy outfits and items for their characters and their homes. When they decide to throw a Tully Town Halloween party at Cathy’s house, Cathy joins a different site to get free Tully Town money. To do so, she provides her login, and soon Cathy can’t access her Tully Town account.
This is such a real-life story, and I loved that. This type of thing can happen so easily to adults, let alone children. I like the way story unfolded and how the lesson was revealed. I would definitely recommend this one for young readers!
