Publisher's Summary

Praise for The Web Paige Chronicles: "Web Paige Chronicles offers a refreshing and empowering role model for young adults. By eschewing this iGeneration’s stereotypical malaise in favor of positive curiosity with technology, Iasiello folds practical cybersecurity guidance into a relatable story." (Scott Schober, author of Hacked Again)

Emilio Iasiello is a cyber-security expert who has written a modern and realistic coming-of-age book that either boys or girls will enjoy. It helps them learn to deal with such modern problems as cyber bullying, hacking, sexting, online predators and more. Though the main characters are junior high aged, older listeners will enjoy this quick listen and learn a great deal about safely negotiating modern technology. Highly recommended for schools and parents to share with their tweens and teens - or their cyber-leery friends. 

Wilhelmina Evangeline Beatriz Paige is better known as “Web” to her friends because of her seemingly endless knowledge of computers. Always eager to lend a hand, she takes pride in helping the “technically challenged” in her neighborhood as part of her “pay-it-forward” philosophy. But when her closest friends become the targets of cyber bullying and online predators, Web realizes that safely navigating the Internet is more than just using strong passwords and antivirus protection. By helping those who can’t help themselves, Web embarks on a journey through which she learns things from not only her friends but also strangers, adults, and, most importantly, herself.

A very important book

The list of resources alone is worth the price of the book. This is the book I wish I had read with my daughters (who are 16 and 17) before they were teenagers. I did purchase this book and read it with my 8 year old and it was eye-opening. I myself learned quite a bit about password security, spyware, cyber bullying, sexting and hacking in general. When the time comes for my youngest to have a phone, play online games and have her own computer, I am confident that she will be responsible and judicious, thanks to Web and the lessons she imparts throughout the book. The characters are wonderfully diverse and representative of our own circle of friends. As a mother of bi-racial children, I always look for works where my kids can see themselves reflected, The web Paige Chronicles is among the very best. The story line is educational and rich in vocabulary words for especially for tweens. I think this would translate well into a tv series and can see it being picked up by PBS. The narration took a bit to get used to but once you do, her voice stays with you.
