Thea's overprotective parents are about to drive her nuts. They invade her privacy, ask too many questions, and restrict her online time so much that Thea feels she can't do any of the things her friends do. She barely has time to answer her emails! When she discovers a new role-playing game online, Thea breaks the rules by staying up late to play. Soon she's living a double life: on one hand the obedient daughter, on the other a girl slipping deeper into darkness.
In the world of the game, Thea falls under the spell of Kit, an older boy whose smarts and savvy can't defeat his near-suicidal despair. As Kit draws soft-hearted Thea into his drama, she creates a full plate of cover stories for her parents and then even her friends. Soon Thea is all alone in the dark world with Kit, who worries her more and more but also seems to be the only person who really gets her.
Is he frightening or only terribly sad? Should Thea fear Kit or pity him? And now,Kit wants to come out of the screen and bring Thea into his real-life world. As much as she suspects that this is wrong, Thea is powerless to resist Kit's allure and hurtles toward the very fate her parents feared most.
Ripped from a true-life story of Internet stalking, Who R U Really? will excite you and scare you as Thea's life spins out of her control.
This book was incredible! I related to the main character, since I experienced something similar when I was that age. This book teaches the importance of online safety. It was mysterious, engaging, and exciting. I couldn't put the book down! I wanted to keep listening/reading the book. Great book!

This book was unbelievably annoying. I found myself talking out loud yelling at her. The main character is a total brat know it all who needed to be locked in her room with all privileges taken away. The mom was quite cunning but I wish she reacted sooner than she did.
Then the main character, ugggh! "I finally have found true love" she said numerously. Are you for real???? Your fourteen!!!! Finally????!!!!! The girl was such an idiot yet she thought she was so in the know. Terrible to say but by the end of the book I wanted the bad guy to kill her, especially after she stole the phone back and had her friends phone. Why would her mother leave her alone? She herself called her daughter sneaky! Duh!
Overall you will love this story if you have no brain or you are a 12 year old who also thinks u know everything.
