Transcript of A girl's life online

Recommendation
I think all teenagers and parents should read this book. one because you really can understand how easy it is for teenagers to message people they don't know. Two, parents can learn to really make sure to watch who there children are talking to on the internet. Finally, because this really is a good life lesson to learn even if your not talking to people you don't know online.
