Overall: 90/100 or A
Sixteen-year-old Madison still loves logging on to Friendverse to see what her BFFs and her cute new boyfriend Nate are up to. But the latest social networking craze is Status Q, which is all about rapid-fire status updates. When one of Mad’s friends has to pull off a high-pressure heist, the gang relies on Status Q to send code messages to each other…all in the middle of a school dance! Will up-to-the-minute social networking save the day…or lead to good old-fashioned disaster?
I really like Madison. She is a really awesome and sweet. I really love her friends, because they were well developed and had their own distinct personality that shined in some way. I really liked that Madison is repairing her friendship with Ruth and that their was some sort of understand. Lisa and Shy are probably my favorite characters, because they seem to have a part of my own friends in them. I also loved Nate, who was realistic.
Like the previous book, I loved how social network was used in the book. The plot was really cute, but had a hint of mystery that was cute and left me wondering what would be happening next. The mystery was a bit like a teen version of James Bond or Oceans Eleven. The writing was pretty good and had cute slang and acronyms. I would reccomend people that are looking for a cute read with a bit of mystery, start with Top 8 and then read What's Your St@tus?.
