Danah Boyd made her book not just a work that will be an excellent reading for parents, but also a book that can be recommended to all those who work with children or see kids as their target audience to which their services and products are tailored.
It is evident that the author spent a significant amount of time to research the subject she wrote about, so her book can certainly be taken as a reference in this field. On the other hand this fact does not seem to affect the ease with which the book is read, its user-friendliness even for those who are not technologically educated.
Due to her experience and background in social media, Danah Boyd's story about discoveries what our kids are doing, though they should not, and vice versa is very interesting and educational work for readers who deal with children.
What will make young readers satisfied about it is the fact that the author succeeded to refute all kinds of myths that are usually connected with teenagers Internet presence and practices.
Her book is unusual, but she successfully blended technology, psychology and the study of teens, whose compilation, thanks to Boyd's experience and unlimited knowledge, can be fully recommended if you are parent of teen kids.
