"Brian Adams's charming and heartfelt young adult novel Offline explores the harm that comes with trading the real world for an online one. Meagan has a real problem. She's not addicted to drugs or alcohol or gambling, but she can't tear herself away from her phone for the life of her. She spends hours swiping, scrolling, and texting. It's beginning to stunt her growth, creating a barrier between Meagan and real, offline relationships. Offline, with its accessible, funny characters and engaging storyline, explores what happens when a seemingly harmless habit takes over someone's life. . . . Meagan's development is at the center of the novel. The at-first deeply superficial teen blossoms into someone who values the complex, tangible world around her. . . . Humorous and earnest, Offline reminds us to unplug and appreciate the things we might miss while buried in our phones."--Foreword Reviews
