Toney Allman is a Capstone Press author.From Booklist:
After citing survey reports that nearly 40 percent of female respondents have experienced online harassment and 17 percent of all respondents admit to dishing it out, the author of this entry in the What’s the Issue? series addresses readers directly to explain how hurtful and risky cyberbullying can be to both sender and receiver. The page design is drab and the photos nothing but filler, but the text is presented in easily digestible blocks, and the back matter includes a checklist, hotlines, and both fiction and nonfiction reading lists. Laced with specific instances that ended in suicides, arrests, and other ugly consequences, Allman’s admonitions may get some readers to pay attention. Consider this as a lead-in or briefer alternative to more detailed treatments, such as Teri Breguet’s Frequently Asked Questions about Cyberbullying (2007). Grades 5-8. --John Peters
