Abstract:

LODESTAR AWARD WINNER FOR BEST YOUNG ADULT BOOK From Hugo and Locus Award-winning author Naomi Kritzer, Catfishing on CatNet is a thought-provoking near future YA thriller that could not be more timely as it explores issues of online privacy, artificial intelligence, and the power and perils of social networks.A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice/Staff PickA Kirkus Reviews Best BookA Junior Library Guild SelectionAn Edgar Award Winner for Best Young Adult NovelA Minnesota Book Award Winner for Best Young Adult NovelAn Andre Norton Nebula Award FinalistAn ITW Thriller Award for Best YA Novel NomineeA Lodestar Award Winner for Best Young Adult Book "A pure delight...that's as tender and funny as it is gripping and fast-paced. This book is perfect. From the believable teenage voices to the shockingly effective thriller plot, it swings effortlessly from charming humor to visceral terror, grounding it all in beautiful friendships, budding romance, and radical acceptance." --The New York TimesBecause her mom is always on the move, Steph hasn't lived anyplace longer than six months. Her only constant is an online community called CatNet--a social media site where users upload cat pictures--a place she knows she is welcome. What Steph doesn't know is that the admin of the site, CheshireCat, is a sentient A.I. When a threat from Steph's past catches up to her and ChesireCat's existence is discovered by outsiders, it's up to Steph and her friends, both online and IRL, to save her."Alongside the uplifting message about inclusivity, diversity, and found family--characters of various ethnicities identify as gay, bisexual, nonbinary, asexual, and still exploring--Kritzer's take on a benevolent AI is both whimsical and poignant. An entertaining, heart-filled exploration of today's online existence and privacy concerns." --Publishers Weekly, starred reviewAt the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
