Book Description

Twelve-year-old Mitchell got involved with the wrong kid this past summer, and the prank they played led to an elderly woman’s injury. Now he finds himself at the police station—his "sentence" is to chat online with a nursing home resident twice a week for the next month. Mitch isn’t thrilled; what could he and some "old" person possibly talk about?

But Mitch’s new online friend has a personality all her own. Her name is Wootie Hayes, and she has plenty to talk about: how she got her name, how much she misses her own home, and how she detests bingo. But she also wants to know about Mitch’s situation. Without expecting it, they help each other face the truth and begin a new friendship in the process. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good Done-in-one-Sitting book..
When my librarian first explained to me this book, she said that this boy did something bad & had to chat with an eldrly person for 30 minutes twice a week as punishment (the plot of this story). I thought that we'd have some criminals here like in "Zach's Lie," or even "Holes." But, this wasn't that big of a misdeed. Well, yeah, it was, but...

Let's just say when you're reading the book & enjoying it, this is a four-star book. When you think back to the plot, it doesn't make all thaqt sense, and you'll probably think of it as an average book.(3, 3 1/2 stars)(note: for such a short book, the character set was VERY well-developed. Even Wootie, who will only be heard by writing) The only five-star piece of writing was with Troer & the _ _ _ _ . I thought that that was very clever.

Some of this has to do with the label. I AM above the suggested reading age (grades 3-5), but I think that this book should be for dudes/duettes 7-10.

If you're 7-10, enjoy this book, but I'd wait 'till it comes out in paperback. ... Read more

Parents hear all the time about what a great resource the Internet is, but it's often tough to know where to start. Searching for information to help with homework often yields more garbage than useful material, and there's always the risk of stumbling across something offensive while online. 300 Incredible Things for Kids on the Internet provides 300 starting points for parents and kids who want to explore the Internet together, safely and constructively.

Essentially, this is a collection of Web addresses, with little commentary, that you can visit with your browser. The sites cover a considerable range of topics from general-reference sites (including dictionaries, encyclopedias, and almanacs) to specialized sites (literature, space exploration, science projects, dinosaurs, pets, history--you name it). Everything's screened for kid-suitability, though the content of the various sites appeals to different age groups (say, from preschool through junior high).

Plus, Leebow includes a selection of parental-interest sites. These deal with parenting advice, education issues, health, and safety. These sites also address Internet issues, including objectionable content and--for those parents who need to catch up to their kids' skill level--the basics of Web surfing. --David Wall ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Caught In The Web
It's Halloween time in Far Hills and Madison is getting the jeebies! She decides to join the school dance committe and join a contest on-line as well! Things with Madison's crush, Hart, are getting harder too...with Ivy in the way! I think this book is a great addition to the awesome series!!!!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Funny how things work out
Madison has a fit when Ivy, her competition, is also helping out for the Halloween school dance. She feels that Ivy might ruin the dance that she always dreamt about.
At Fiona's (one of Madison's best friends)sleepover, Madison reveals the secret of the past of Fiona's house. She and Aimee describes that there use to be ghostsliving in the attic. Of course, Fiona thinks it's a lie but when they go up to take a look...
Madison enters a story contest on her favourite Web site, bigfishbowl.com. The contest shows creative writing for the holiday of Halloween. Madison hasn't a clue what to write about but she is sure she has a chance from all the people that enters. Will she win?

3-0 out of 5 stars jesi's thoughts
Of course Maddie enters a web-site contest, but that doesn't mean that her whole life has to turn into a horror story? Right? Of course it does, when the three BFFs get caught up in an old ghost story they realize how chicken they really are. Madison and I want to turn Ivy into a chicken to, since she's being so mean and bossing every single one of Madison's great ideas about decorating the Halloween dance to the ground. Who died and made her most annoying slug in the universe?

5-0 out of 5 stars KEPT ON WANTING TO READ MORE AND MORE!
Now, I am a fast reader, but I finished this book in 1.5 hours because I just couldn't put it down. Madison is on the Halloween Dance Comittee and so is Ivy. They are both leaders of the decoration crew. Also, Madison enters a scary story contest on her favorite web site, bigfishbowl.com. Madison goes to the dance and she and Hart actually dance together! But whether or not Madison wins the contest, well, you'll just have to read the book. If you go on www.lauradower.com and go to the link where Madison Finn's homepage is, you can read a sample chapter of the first 4 books. So get this book today!

5-0 out of 5 stars The most awsome book!
This book deserves 2 thumbs up and 5 stars! It is funny, scary and has suspense in it at the same time! It has snip-its from Madisons chats and IMs. It has 4 stories going on at once, which is realy cool and fun to read! I like this Madison Finn book more than all the other ones. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars NET FORCE "One is the loneliest number" by Tom Clancy
My name is Mike from 1st period English II, and I am reviewing NET FORCE "One is the loneliest number" by Tom Clancy.
It is basically your general science fiction novel where computers rule the world in the future. I liked this book not only because I like science fiction, but because it is an outstanding piece of literature. It is so outstanding because it is a thinker. You are not supposed to under stand everything as soon as it happens. A couple of pages later, the it all clicks together. In the begining, the characters talk of simulations, North American XB-70 Valkyries, and Spitfires. When it is put into words in such a matter, the words have no meaning. In later pages, however, you soon find out that the kids are virtually simulating well known wars such as WWII, and the Battle of Gettysburg. Also, the NA XB-70 Valkyrie is a super virtual jet that Maj,a main character, brought back to life. Finally, a Spitfire is a log-lived aircraft in their virtual world.

I also like this book because it is extremely descriptive. There are adjictives that paint much more than a picture. The auther, Tom Clancy, tells the story as if he is living it at that point in time. He really knows how to stay in the moment. "It stood silhouetted against the brightening crimson line of dawn, a shadow that could as yet cast no shadow of its own"(1). Tom Clancy could have simply said, "It made a silhouette when the sun came up." "Very suddenly, and Maj hoped showily, they appeared on the tarmac as they were mentioned: A threesomeof F-104 Starfighters, their brushed chrome gleaming blindingly in the sun and their engines already wound up and screaming with mechanical enthusiasm"(21). The words, "Three planes showed up," would have covered that 38 word sentence. I am not sure wheather it is the discription or what they are describing that caught my eye.

The third and final reason why I like this book is because it is all about kids. It really puts things in perspective and helped me relate to the characters ans situations better. "In the future, computers rule the world. The et Force was formed to protect us fro any and all criminal activity on-line. But there is a group of teenage whiz kids who sometimes know more about computers than their adult superiors"(back cover). That showes that kids are running the show.

I give this book four out of five stars because it is only 175 pages long. I reccomend this read to teenagers that watch Star Trek, and was first in line for Star Wars Episode II.

4-0 out of 5 stars Net Force Explorers: One is the Loneliest Number
Madeleine Green, called Maj, has spent a year perfecting one of her latest virtual sims. She decides to present it to her friends who calls themselves the Group of Seven, seven teens who are all computer whiz kids. But all it took was a few moments for one of the Group, Roddy L'Officer, to sabotage her sim program! Since Roddy has done plenty of damaging 'pranks' before, the rest of the Group decides to exile Roddy, meaning no virtmails and no sims between the friends and him. But Roddy has something up his sleeve, a new 'playroom' he has recently created. But the 'playroom' is not all he's done, he's also discovered something of pure genius, something that can be used for good... or for evil.

The Net Force Explorers is a great Young Adult fiction series, especially those with a love for computers and the Internet. Since the Net presented in the books have no boundaries, you will never know what to expect next. With well-thought out plots, the stories have plenty of twists and turns, having the whole plot well balanced with mystery, excitement, and adventure.

Unfortunately for me, "One is the Loneliest Number" isn't one of my favorite Net Force Explorer's books. The reason is because the back of the book did not explain what the story was about very well so the first half of the book was very slow and a bit dull for me. I think the reason is because though in the back it says that the Group of Seven are Net Force Explorers, it's not necessarily true. Only Maj is an Explorer so Net Force doesn't appear for a while in the story. But as soon as things began to pick up, I must admit that the story was incredibly exciting! My tip is, though maybe a bit slow at first, keep reading. The last few chapters are EXTREMELY exciting!

The character of Maj Green is pretty average, has a temper that flairs up occasionally but soon simmers down. But for me my favorite character was Mark Grideley, who appears later in the book. He is fairly young, thirteen years old, but since he is the Net Force director's son, he's very smart. As stubborn as a rock, he is in a way a good leader. I LOVE the part where he, Maj, and Charlie (another Explorer) confront Roddy. But of course I can't say too much!

The series is for Young Adults and I strongly recommend only older kids read it since there are many occasions where a few bad words are sprinkled here and there. Not that bad but still in a way a bit annoying to have them in the book. But I still highly recommend it for older kids for I'm sure you'll love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars REALLY GOOD
I believe that this book is a really good book, and I would certainly want to buy the whole series after just this first book. I really want to go out and buy the rest of these books. Two Thumbs Up! :-))

3-0 out of 5 stars My copy was missing pages 59 - 90, a critical part.
The copy I purchased was missing pages 59 thru 90, a critical part, and had 91 thru 122 twice. I tried to just forget the missing pages and continue, but it was impossible, to much was missing from the story. Other than the aformentioned problem, the book was very good, what I could read of it. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars My high school AP students really did not like this book.
I am a math teacher who can program (not a programmer) and clearly the Litvins are experts. However, I have some terrific AP students (5's on the AP tests, 91% pass rate for over 6 years) and my kids really do not like the Litvin books, find them terribly confusing. We are trying out the Lewis Loftus book and liking it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Method for class Class extends Learning
Wow! What a great book for learning Java! Whether you are a beginner to computer programming, or migrating from another language, this book has so much for everybody. Every chapter ends with a summary and a variety of exercises to test yourself (or your students) on the topics presented. In addition, most chapters have at least one Lab and/or Case Study to extend your understanding and your programming skills. The book however is just the beginning. There are numerous Internet references for support, edification and enrichment as well as a terrific companion web site devoted to enhancing the book. The web site contains sample programs from the book, "student" activities, "teacher" solutions, information on Java compilers and IDE's, appendices, I/O classes, etc. As a high school APCS teacher I believe that this book will be an excellent choice for any high school level programming course. The Litvins gently take the new programmer by the hand and first walk them through samples of code just glancing at the details and eventually exposing the full breadth and power of Java. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars good for girls and women
I bought this book after hearing Ceel Pasternak and Linda Thornburg speak at a chapter meeting of the Association for Women in Computing. They've put a lot of thought into creating a series of books that will be interesting to junior high school aged girls and introduce them to role models in a variety of feilds, particularly the "non-traditional" ones.

Each chapter of the book is about a different woman who speaks about what her job title is, what that means, and what a day for her might entail. It also talks about what the woman liked to do as a child, the people who encouraged her, what her interests were then and now, and how she got to this point in her career and life. So, you're not just reading about a job, you're reading about a person, and what it's like to be an adult who works in this field. I think it's a good book, because reading it ought to dispell the idea that many young girls seem to have that even if they like their computer at home, they wouldn't want a computing job, because they'd be stuck behind the computer all day and never interacting with anyone else.

It's an easy read, and I don't think it talks down to the audience. I enjoyed reading it myself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Reading For Every Career-Minded Woman!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource
This book is an excellent resource for parents, teachers, and children who are new to the world of the web and even for those who are not. It is precise and straightforward. Children as well as adults will find it useful. When a fellow teacher let me borrow her copy (for a short time only) she allowed me a peek into the wonderful, safe, opportunities available for children on the web. There are homework sites, game sites, craft sites, and many, many others. It is a resource for all ages. ... Read more

Book Description

What a relief when the old story-book is republished and the characters who live inside it suddenly discover they have Readers again -- lots of Readers!

Princess Sylvie finds herself rushing to get to her place whenever a new Reader -- whether in Boston or Bangkok -- opens the book. Her mother, the queen, is especially frazzled when the popular story is loaded onto the Web, a weightless, "virtual" world of unforeseen challenges.

To cope with the stress, Sylvie convinces the Writer to add a new character, who gives yoga instruction to the storybook's cast in those moments when they have time off. But stress proves the least of their problems as strange things start happening -- words get changed around, scenes disappear -- and Sylvie and her friends must launch themselves into the labyrinth of cyberspace to confront a twenty-first-century evil that threatens to destroy their world. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Stunning book!
After reading the fabulous The Great Good Thing, I rushed to get this book. I found that Roderick Townley did it again with his second book, Into the Labyrinth. Although it was charming and hard to set down, this book should not be marketed to younger children. This novel would be more of a hit for 11 and up. My 13 year old daughter just started reading it and is already amazed at the creativity. This is a classic for children and adults alike.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not nearly as good as the first one
After reading and loving "A Great Good Thing," I was hoping for this sequel to be as well-written and charming. I was disappointed. It features the same wonderful characters, princess Sylvie and the "girl with the dark blue eyes," as well as the king and queen and all the other characters, but the plot doesn't hold together nearly as well. The author inserts a new character -- a yoga instructor named Rosetta-- into "the story" as an assistant shepherdess, and all the talk of energy projection lines and finding one's center is way above the heads of its 9-12 audience.

Instead of books and their readers, it tackles the problem of the Internet and its viewers -- that is, "the story" is published online. Instead of a little brother who is a pyromaniac and destroys the book in "A Great Good Thing," it seems to deal with a boy who spreads computer viruses -- but this part isn't very clear.

The story borders more on the zany type of puns and Alice-in Wonderland type plot, -- than than the clever, funny and fantastic but logical and believeable plot devices of the original. Characters from other stories wander into the text. Internet "cookies" look like lemon cookies, but are tasteless. Someone steals the "d's" in one paragraph. Entire lines of dialouge disappear, arrows become roses. Persumably all these thing happen due to a computer virus -- but there is no clear character behind or logical reason for the problems. The book suggests a little boy is to blame, but unlike the clear difficulties in the first book -- escaping a burning book and not being forgotten upon the death of the reader -- the villian is murky and there is not a logical direction to the problems. The mysterious villian is defeated eventually -- but you never do learn how or why the virus happened. And by the end of the book, you don't particulary care. ... Read more

This is an excellent book! It's about a kid named Tristan who has to fight for his life from a super hacker. You never want to put this book down. It's the first of 6 in an excellent series. I would recommend this book to anyone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Doomsday is coming...
John Peel has created a unique and wonderfully written series for teenagers that,sadly, is not longer then six books. But while the 2099 books did not go longer then 6 books, it is one of the best series you can find for the average 9-14 reader. Tristan, an ordinary teenager, is in danger he doesn't even know about. He accesses a file he shouldn't have, and because of his mistake, the world is in unspeakable danger. His evil and devious clone,Devon,is set to destroy everything he's ever known. Tristan has to stop the catastrophe, for the future lies in the hands of his own knowledge. Until it comes to a shattering end...

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST SERIES EVER!
Once you read this book you will never put it down, and with such an exploding ending there is no wonder i sat down and read the whole series in a few days! The best sci-fi series ever written and a must read for everyone, keep em commin Peel! ... Read more
