When thirteen-year-old Katherine Tarbox used her sister's laptop to go online, she found a whole new social scene where people were not judged by their looks but by what they had to say. And there, in an adolescent chatroom, she found Mark. He was perfect: He listened to her, he understood her, and, according to his messages, he loved her. And through a series of evolving e-mail messages, Katie fell in love with Mark--fell in love for the first time in her life. But when they actually met, Katie's teenage dream man turned out to be a forty-year-old named Frank.Though Katie was harshly stung by the encounter, she took action. Now seventeen years old, she looks back on her experience and brings us Katie.com, a courageous story of how the Internet has vastly changed teen life. As the first victim to successfully prosecute a pedophile via the new Internet laws, Katie's story has received overwhelming media attention. This brave memoir--a Go Ask Alice for the twenty-first century--is a must-read for teenagers and their parents. To visit her web page go to: http://www.KatieT.com

This book is lame. I guess it relates to a lot of teenage girls these days on sites like Omegle but she caused this. How can you fall in love with someone you've never met? She was reeled in with sweet talking. She should have more self respect for herself than that.
