Maxine's best friend, Leah, has been missing for six months, and Maxine helps the police investigate the possibility that her disappearance is connected to their online friend, 2funE, who claims to be a sixteen-year-old boy.

Orca Book Publishers
"This realistic, gripping story about the dangers of online predators is told through fictional diary entries."
Maxine and Leah used to have so much fun chatting with boys online. Their other friends were jealous of their new relationships, and their parents were oblivious to the love notes being emailed back and forth. So what if Max and Leah lied about their ages and where they lived ... it was just a website ... just for fun. But when Leah disappeared, Max realized that they weren't the only ones telling lies online. Through her daily journal entries, Max shares the horrible feeling of betrayal, the crushing loss of Leah, and the struggle to move on after all that has happened. A list of internet safety tips for readers (and parents and teachers) is included in the final pages of the book.

One of the most touching books I've ever read!!! It's so sad, I (and I'm serious) cried. But it happens everyday. It's a great way to tell people to be aware, but not in a lecture way, but an interesting way.

This book was really sad and depressing but a wonderful book.

This was a very sad and depressing book, but I liked how the reader can follow everything that Maxine is feeling, and at the end it is very hopeful, and the reader feels that hope. I got excited over every little sign of her feeling better. It teaches a really good lesson.

An amazing story. I found it very depressing, but I guess that's what reality did to Maxine. Teaches a great lesson on internet safety and suspicion. I like the journal/diary entry form of writing. Very well written.
