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.

My Thoughts:
This was an interesting read. I wasn't sure how to feel about this book. I laughed and cried while reading this book. I love that this was an internet based thriller, but the cats threw me for a loop. It took a minute to get over the cat-internet thing, but once I did I was able to enjoy the story. I felt the tension for Steph and her mother while being on the run from her father. The relationship with her mother and friends (in real life and virtual) were all so dynamic. 

This book kept me intrigued and wanting to know more as it went on. It's a fast-paced read and includes a hilarious AI with some interesting views on humans. I am excited to read the sequel, Chaos on CatNet, when it releases April 2021. I want more of Steph and her friends!!!

I would totally recommend if you like cats or want a different type of YA thriller to enjoy.
