KATIE FRIEDMAN GIVES UP TEXTING! by Tommy Greenwald

Katie Friedman

The story: Challenged by her favorite singer to get a group of friends to give up texting for a week (and with an awesome prize dangling in front of her if she succeeds), Katie Friedman does what feels like the impossible: she goes phone-free for an entire week–and lives to tell about it!

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Ever asked someone on a date (or worse, broken up with them) by text message?  Then this book is for you!  Charlie Joe Jackson’s best friend, Katie Friedman, is a funny narrator dealing with a problem you’ve probably noticed yourself: kids’ (and adults’) seeming inability to put down their devices and have a face-to-face conversation. But here’s proof for everyone that it can be done…and with minimum injuries!
