Summary of the Book:
After a video she makes goes viral, everyone knows Delilah Rollins. And now that she’s in LA, Delilah’s standing on the edge of something incredible. Everything is going to change. She has no idea how much.
Jasmine Walters-Diaz grew up in the spotlight. A child star turned media darling, the posts of her in her classic Lulu C. rainbow skirt practically break the Internet. But if the world knew who Jasmine really was, her perfect life? Canceled.
Fiona Jacobs is so funny–the kind of girl for whom a crowd parts–no wonder she’s always smiling! But on the inside? The girl’s a hot mess. And when someone comes out of the shadows with a secret from her past, it’s one that won’t just embarrass Fiona: it will ruin her.
Who wouldn’t want to be Scarlet Leigh? Just look at her Instagram. Scarlet isn’t just styled to perfection: she is perfection. Scarlet has a gorgeous, famous boyfriend named Jack and there’s a whole fanbase about their ship. To everyone watching online, their lives seem perfect . . . but are they really? The sun is hot in California . . . and someone’s going to get burned.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I not sure that I have ever paid all that close attentions to social influencers. I am not sure if this is true for all those involved. The lives of those in this story make it all seen as glossed over and fake and gave a peek into cancel culture. I liked parts of this book but some parts left me a bit confused. I have read other things by Sara Shepard and enjoyed them, but not sure how I feel about this book.
My Rating of the Book: 2 Stars
