The Virtual Life of Lexie Diamond by Victoria Foyt

Lexie Diamond is a young girl that is simply obsessed with computers. She doesn't really have any friends in real life because she doesn't believe that she belongs in the 'bubble'. The bubble is the real world. Lexie believes that there is another world, located in the internet. The only real friends she has are her mother and the mysterious webrider, who has been her internet pal for years. Suddenly, when her mother is mysteriously killed, things just get worse for Lexie. Her father meets a woman named Jane, who Lexie thinks is involved with her mother's death. Also, she sees her mother on her computer, and talks to her! The only person who really believes her is webrider. They work together to figure out how her mother really died, and how to get rid of Jane. In the end, webrider is someone that you would never expect them to be.

This was a good book to read. I thought it was VERY different than anything else I have read before. I don't think there are many books that deal with computers or the internet, so it was an odd book to read. Even though it was based on computers, the storyline was twisted in a way I would never imagine. The plot was set up very well with many surprises along the way. The only bad thing I would say about it, is that The Virtual Life of Lexie Diamond was only a page turner for a few spots in the story. I recomend this book to anyone who wants to read something different then normal or anyone who loves computers.
