    One thought on “The Virtual Life of Lexie Diamond”

    1. Lexie is a self-proclaimed girl gearhead, here defined not as a car nut or gadget geek, but a computer addict who has forsaken a real life for the Internet. When her mother, a psychologist, is killed in a car accident, Lexie suspects foul play, and is convinced her Mac may have answers. Her dad is too taken with a new girlfriend to pay much attention to Lexie's crackpot murder theories, so she turns to the 'net -- and some new friends -- for assistance. To reflect Lexie's personality and disillu [...]

    2. Victoria Hoyt's assistant was kind enough to pass on a copy of The Virtual Life of Lexie Diamond to me recently. Despite coming out in Hardcover in 2007, I'd somehow never run into it beforeLexie is a computer geek, and loves it. Her computer, lovingly called Ajna-Mac, is her portal to a world she identifies with more than the every day one she lives in, so when her mother dies suddenly in a car accident it's Ajna-Mac she turns too. But as Lexie soon learns, life has a way of sweeping you up, ev [...]

    3. Reviewed by Mark Frye, author and reviewer for TeensReadTooTHE VIRTUAL LIFE OF LEXIE DIAMOND is a suspenseful "whodunit" from actress and screenwriter Victoria Foyt, a first novel that effectively covers a wide gamut of emotional ground. Fourteen-year-old Lexie copes with alienation at school and her divorced parents' disappointment with her computer-driven life. When her mother is killed in a mysterious car crash, Lexie finds credible evidence of foul play and is forced to adapt, change, and gr [...]

    4. This is a really sweet book that successfully blends suspense and coming-of-age with fantasy and a meaningful message. The 13-year-old protagonist, Lexie Diamond, struggles with pre-adolescent angst on many levels—she’s coping with the sudden, tragic death (and possibly murder) of her mother, her father’s quickly developing relationship with a woman she can’t stand, and insecurity to the point where she’s isolated herself from her peers, immersing herself in her own bit of cyberspace. [...]

    5. Having just finished (and loved!) Foyt's latest young adult novel, Save the Pearls Part One REVEALING EDEN, I decided to pick up her last book, The Virtual Life of Lexie Diamond. To say the least, I was really glad that I did! Lexie is a fourteen year old girl that spends way too much time on the internet, to the point where she has no real friends. This leads her to become quirky and really alienated at school. (Super relatable to a lot of kids these days, I'm sure.)The reader will also empathi [...]

    6. I had no idea Victoria Foyt was such a novelist I'm actually a fan of her 1997 flick Déjà vu so when I found out she was an author, I thought I'd show my support and check out one of her books. I started with her newest book Save the Pearls Part 1 REVEALING EDEN and loved her work so much that I decided to read her first book too! I've gotta say, this book was surprisingly good. I love how Victoria Foyt is able to tackle such coming-of-age issues in such a relatable way, since we actually live [...]

    7. My fuck. All right, Victoria "Let's offend everybody on the planet in one way or another, won't that be fun?!?/1/1one!!111eleven!!11" Foyt appears to have done it again. I hate to judge a book by its summary, but it sounds like it's generally going to proclaim this message: If you're an internet user, you're a crazed addict and should seek help, as you have no grasp of the real world. Which is just.No!

    8. I really enjoyed reading The Virtual Life of Lexie Diamond, it was definitely full of surprises and kept me entertained.

    9. This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV.
