How much does the internet know about YOU?

Because her mom is always on the move, Steph hasn’t lived anyplace longer than six months. Her only constant is an online community called CatNet—a social media site where users upload cat pictures—a place she knows she is welcome. What Steph doesn’t know is that the admin of the site, CheshireCat, is a sentient A.I.

When a threat from Steph’s past catches up to her and ChesireCat’s existence is discovered by outsiders, it’s up to Steph and her friends, both online and IRL, to save her.

Praise for Catfishing on Catnet

“The characters offer positive, realistic LGBTQIA+ representation―especially nonbinary identities and characters still exploring their identities. Refreshingly, the characters also feel like generally-woke-but-still-imperfect humans. Wickedly funny and thrilling in turns; perfect for readers coming-of-age online.” ―Kirkus, starred review

“Kritzer’s take on a benevolent AI is both whimsical and poignant. An entertaining, heart-filled exploration of today’s online existence and privacy concerns.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Smart, sly, scary, and irrepressibly good fun, this novel has everything I’ve ever wanted from a story: it is a cerebral, funny, tender, big-idea delight. I can’t wait for you to read it.”―Kelly Barnhill, Newbery Award-winning author of The Girl Who Drank the Moon

“An absolutely charming and incredibly gripping, superbly plotted YA thriller.” ―Cory Doctorow, New York Times bestselling author of Little Brother

“Kritzer’s flawless collection taps deep wells of emotion and wonder…. Her work is indisputably speculative, but it’s a perfect entry point to the genre for readers who prefer fantastical and futuristic elements to stay more in the background, with human (and robotic) feelings always at the fore. This splendid treat is not to be missed.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Cat Pictures Please and Other Stories 

Review

What a unique but also kind of realistic story! I mean, we are so reliant on technology and I feel like way too many people don’t at least question security/safety issues enough. But even without all of that this is a highly enjoyable story and it’s something that I rarely see touched upon in books.

So, let me start by saying I want a social media site where cat photos are the currency! I mean, I’d like to think I’d be rich with all of the photos I have of my two crazy kitties! But a lot of crazy things happen throughout the story, so be prepared, buckle up, and get ready for a bumpy and wildly thrilling ride. Plus I really enjoyed the characters and they’re diverse enough to give everyone someone to love.

I really loved this book and all of the craziness inside. It’s a super fast read that will get your mind spinning. And it’s worth it for the concept alone, but it’s also just a really funny story amidst all of the deeper plots! Plus it’s really melodramatic in all of the best ways, and you know that I am the same way so instant connection there.
