Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "With a dozen questions-and-answers, Roesler covers online gaming, from basic definitions to the future of gaming, in this installment in the Tech Smarts series. In addition to the approachable paragraphs, each concise, informative chapter includes a boxed factoid, and some pages have additional, Think About It boxes that invite the reader to explore further. The content is refreshingly current; for example, Roesler discusses both sides of the argument about violence and video games, and she reveals that gamers are divided nearly evenly between males and females. Photographs representing diverse groups and age ranges enhance the text, and a fact sheet rounds it out. Best of all, not only can this title inform young readers, but it is perfect for sharing with parents.--Scanlon, Donna Copyright 2016 Booklist"
