Catfishing on CatNet: A Novel

We rated this book:


Do you really know whom you’re talking to online? Because her mother is always on the move, sixteen-year-old Steph hasn’t lived anywhere longer than six months. Her only constant is an online community called CatNet – a social media site where users upload cat pictures. The admin known as ChesireCat is a sentient AI who loves cat photos. When a threat from Steph’s past catches up to her, and ChesireCat’s existence is discovered, it’s up to Steph and her friends – both in real life and online – to save them.

The setting of Catfishing on Catnet was really compelling; it takes place during a time where drones, driving cars, and robots are more commonplace and more accepted than they are now. It’s especially relevant today because of the character’s uses of social media, where friendships are seemingly built on common interests and there’s a need to always be there for each other, despite how much danger they would end up in. Catfishing on Catnet is absolutely wonderful because of the setting, the use of online friends, and the inclusivity of both sexuality and gender identity. I could not help but love every twist and turn.
