Want to Go Private? is, in my opinion, a very respectful look at the dangers of the Internet. It can be read as a sort of cautionary tale, and the way Abby’s story unfolds gives it a lot more weight than a safety talk given in a high school gym. This book becomes more and more relevant as kids become more and more active online, and I really think Littman has created an important piece of fiction with this book. It’s definitely worth reading, as beyond the topics presented, it is an intense and exciting book that kept me up until 1 AM (literally) to read.
