Because her mother is always on the move, sixteen-year-old Steph hasn't lived anywhere longer than six months. Her only constant is an online community called CatNet, a social media site where users upload cat pictures and the admin is CheshireCat, a sentient AI who loves cat pictures. When a threat from Steph's past catches up to her and CheshireCat's existence is discovered, it's up to Steph and her friends, both online and IRL, to save them. A near-future thriller about online privacy and out-of-control technology and the importance of making connections in an increasingly fragmented society.

In this slightly futuristic story, Steph finds that an AI runs her favorite social website, CatNet. Her only friends are on the site. Steph never has a chance to make in person friends because she and her mother move ever few months. Her mother lives in constant fear of being found by Steph's father who tried to kill both of them in a house fire. The AI becomes involved with Steph's life in an effort to help her which includes tracking her father and making harder for him to find her. Suspense. Action. Humor. Good read.
