A very topical book and a pretty quick read, eBully was dedicated to but not so much based on a true story where a teen bullied on the internet eventually committed suicide.

In this story, a recent nearly fatal case of e-bullying prompted a teacher to take a very unconventional course of action to prevent another incident with a different student. This leads to a juvenile defender being brought in undercover to try to find the culprit in exchange for his freedom from the detention centre. It's a pretty common opener, but interesting to see a generational twist.

The "ex-con" character in this is probably the strongest from an adult reader's point of view as I think he may be easier to connect with. His concerns about his life and his future (at least for me) were easy to picture. Additionally, he was quite adult in his outlook through much of the book. However, the victim of the crime in progress may well appeal more to a young adult reader as the "sticks and stones" assault might not register as much with an adult.

And this is where I, as a reader, had to shift my own perceptions a little. It's very easy for me to trivialise the attack. But this is why I believe the author has chosen his intended audience well. I think a young adult is going to empathise with Carly and I believe this empathy is important to the success of the novel as it's very much a cautionary tale.

Unfortunately, I also thought there was some clumsiness in this novel and I think one of the characters said it better than I could have at the end of the novel:

"It turned out to be like a Scooby Doo episode"

It really did feel a bit like Scooby Doo with the rampant 'deputisation' that occurred amongst students and the relatives thereof.

its been a while since a YA book that actually disturbed me this way. but this kinda thing does happen, internet bullying. i think the author took the subject and ran with it. now granted, it did have a few spots where things fit together too neatly, but overall it was an excellent book. i read it in one setting, and i really hope he writes a sequel.

I will preface my review by stating that my son is, and has been, bullied for most of his elementary school life. That said, I guess as a parent of a bullied child, I compared the response of the administrator in the book (and yes, I DO realize this is a work of fiction) to life in the real world.

In this story, a young woman is receiving text messages and IMs from a cyberbully. The previous school year, a young girl resorted to a suicide attempt due to being cyberbullied. The Vice Principal vows that another student will not end up like the first girl, so takes great lengths to try to discover the culprit.

In his quest to determine the person responsible, the Vice Principal engages the aid of a young man who is currently residing in Juvenile Detention. Among his many crimes, he was caught hacking into a school's computer to change grades. Based on this, the VP thinks that he can strike a deal with the young man to come to school, posing as a student, to determine who is behind the latest round of cyberbullying.

Of course, the VP has his mind made up on who is responsible, and sets up the young man to befriend the suspect so he can prove his guilt. Only problem is, the "suspect" is far more computer-literate than the boy brought in to catch the bad guy.

In the course of the story, the suspect and the jailbird become friends and work together to unmask the culprit. They end up involving several other students in the plot, which is another large glaring "hard to swallow" development.

With all of them working together, the "bad guy" is finally unmasked, only to get away with the crime because of the lack of rules governing this type of crime. That, perhaps, is the ONLY shred of reality in the book.

A young boy locked away in a juvenile detention facility is hired by the vice principal of a middle school to go undercover and sniff out the identity of an internet bully on campus.

Despite the cloak and dagger setup, "eBully" is is actually a very realistic story. It's seemingly based in part on a real-life incident that took place on MySpace.

Even though children are the primary characters, I'd be hesitant to call this a kids' book. It's fairly dark and adult in nature. Still, it's a book every child - and parent - with access to the internet should read.

Format: Paperback
This is one of those subjects that you wish didn't need attention. In fact, the whole thing kind of makes you ill. I think bullying is probably one subject that nearly everyone can identify with. Whether it was in school, at home, at work or with friends, we have all known a bully or two, many of us up close and personal.

For those of us that are 30-something, our schoolyard bullies were much different. We knew their faces and we knew what the danger was. These days, bullies are faceless. They lurk in cyberspace where they feel braver. Brave enough to say and do things that we could only imagine. They don't have to face you during lunch and call you names, they can broadcast it to the entire school with a few keystrokes.

The author does a wonderful job handling such a difficult subject. He handles it in such a way that I would encourage those with teenagers to talk to your kids about the book and let them read it. There's nothing too graphic in here and it's a great young adult (middle school level) book. The only way to combat situations like this is to talk about them and talk loudly. Kids need to know that it's okay to "tell" their parents and it's NOT okay to let a bully get away with it.

The storyline flowed very well. The author didn't go off on any tangents where I felt the need to read through the pages and pull him back on track. He was able to keep the story going while still keeping the character development on point. I actually stayed up way too late one night trying to finish this one but ended up giving it up until the next day. Well worth the lost sleep though!

I'm giving this four stars, it loses a star because some of the dialogue was a bit stilted. Interestingly enough, I felt the adults were the problem.
