9781551435299: Chat Room (Orca Currents)

I don’t know what I expected—maybe sirens and a flashing screen notifying the world that I was on the page—but of course that didn’t happen. No one knew I was there. How could they know? I hadn’t registered. And as long as I didn’t, I was anonymous. I started to breathe again.

Linda is shy and avoids getting involved at school. But when her high school sets up online chat rooms she can’t resist the urge to visit them. Fuelled by interest in a student with the nickname Cyrano, Linda participates in online conversations using the nickname Roxane and gains a reputation as the queen of one-liners. Soon Linda starts receiving gifts from a secret admirer who signs his gifts, “C.” She is certain that her life has taken a turn for the better until “C” reveals his true identity.

Kristin Butcher is the bestselling author of a number of books for juveniles and teens, including three Orca Soundings: The Hemingway Tradition, The Trouble with Liberty and Zee’s Way. Kristin lives in Victoria, British Columbia.

From the Back Cover:

I didn't allow myself to think about what I was doing, because if I did, I knew I would chicken out. I just typed the name and hit Enter.

Fueled by interest in a student with the nickname Cyrano, Linda, a girl who suffers from extreme shyness, gets chatty online. Using the nickname Roxane, she gains a reputation as the queen of one-liners. Soon Linda starts receiving gifts from a secret admirer, and she feels like her life might be turning around. But she has a lot to learn about the risks of online anonymity.
