Bryn, Georgie and Cora are three high school seniors about to find out just how quick rumors spread and spiral out of control, especially in the age of social media.
Bryn made a mistake last summer, and she wants her old life back. It's hard to find her footing again.
Georgie lost weight, and she wants to try on a new personality like she's been trying on new clothes.
Cora thought she had a great relationship, and a great boyfriend, but as rumors fly, is she sure?
Through the good and bad, someone is spreading rumors online about all three of the girls, but who exactly is behind it? Can they figure it out and stop it before all of the girls settle into infamy?
Writing and Characters
I liked all three of the girls and I loved that the authors chose to switch POVs between all three of the girls to make sure that we got a clear view of the interweaving storylines and the rumors surrounding them.
This book moved at a great pace, and there were lots of distinct plot points hit across the way. Also, the authors were great at choosing when to switch POVs so that one side of the story never ran dry.
Social Media/Mixed Media Aspect
I adore when books include other media as storytelling devices. With this book being so social media-centric, the use of screenshots. comments, posts, and emails was extremely effective and made me feel even more immersed in the story than I already would have been.
There are mature themes in this book, including that of sexual assault, so if that is triggering for you, this novel may not be for you.
The discovery of who was feeding the rumor mill new ideas was well done. I didn't figure out who is was absurdly early and everything was tied up and answered by the last page, so I was satisfied.
I really enjoyed this book! I think if you are a fan of books such as One Of Us Is Lying or Revenge of the Sluts by Natalie Walton, I think you would definitely be a fan of this one. Look out for it's release on March 1, 2022 and add it to your Goodreads TBR here!
