Interesting to me what resonates. I picked this up to see what all the rage was about texting (I'm an adult, old school) and while I personally will not cave to cell phones and texting myself, I understand the important role it plays for many people. I have a 10-year-old who will soon be facing these same communications pressures when she goes to middle school next year. I thought Greenwald handled the topic of communication and how use of texting and cell phones can backfire, but also showed how they're handy, in such a way that middle school kids will get, appreciate, and love. Surprisingly, I had an emotional reaction to this one that required such a strong review. Well done, well done.
