Have you ever wanted to reinvent yourself?

Have you ever lied about who you are to get more likes?

Meet Holly.

Social media sensation. The face of clean eating.

Everyone loves her. Everyone wants to be her.

But when Holly is attacked by a man she's only just met, her life starts to spiral out of control. He seemed to know her - but she doesn't know him.

What if Holly isn't who she seems to be? What if Holly's living a lie?

My Take on the Book:

If you’re one of those that enjoy suspense and thriller novels that are based a little bit on social media – this is a nice one to pick up. For me, the internet and social media culture was laid out so well here.

This was a leisurely read that I ended up giving a four star rating to.

Last Word:

This is the first book that I’ve read by this author – and it most certainly won’t be the last.
