Gr 9 Up—This series explores the various ways, both positive and negative, in which cell phones affect society and shape our modern lives and interactions with others. Readers will be drawn in by real-life examples and text boxes with supplemental information and quotes. Research is cited, but some statements that are presented as fact are not always supported. Although there is discussion about how children and teens are influenced by cell phones, particularly in Cell Phones and Teens, these are definitely aimed at high school readers. The large blocks of unbroken text and small type may be overwhelming to reluctant readers. Suitable choices.
