Internet sex predators have fast become a growing threat to children and teens online. At social networks and in chat rooms, young people are enticed into relationships that may move into the real world and lead to sexual exploitation, abuse, or worse. Despite the efforts of law enforcement, too many kids continue to be easy and trusting targets. This book examines the tactics of the predators, the real-life experiences of young victims, the stings that catch online predators, and the ways in which people can protect themselves in today's virtual world.

Allman pulls no punches about the dangers of sexual predators on many Web sites and chat rooms popular with kids today. He offers close-up profiles and full-color photos of real criminals and the tricks they use, of young victims and survivors and what happened to them, and of ongoing sting operations to catch the criminals online. The prose is terse, and lots of screen shots supply detailed advice and safety tips (never post your real name, ignore sexual messages, etc.). Part of the Ripped from the Headlines series, this will grab even young middle-school readers with the noncondescending warning of the dangers in Internet places where they spend their time. The fully documented chapter notes refer mostly to Web sites, and there is also an annotated list of sites that carry true stories and tips about safety in cyberspace. Hazel Rochman
