Waterstones Says

Smart, thoughtful and compelling, Sage's prescient debut about growing up in the glare of social media tracks Almond Brown's journey to understanding that real friends are better than virtual followers.

Almond Brown has no friends in real life... but 3.5 million followers online. A heart-felt, whip-smart deep dive into what it would really be like to be internet famous at 17: a cautionary tale for our time from a writer who has grown up with social media.

Almond is forced into the spotlight when she was just a perfectly filtered bump: her mum has been documenting their family through social media since before she was born. And her family enjoy all the rewards that come from that level of influence. Only, it's not the life Almond would have chosen for herself, and being on a platform all the time has made her anxious and insecure.

When the darkest side of the internet begins to haunt her, Almond feels like she's going to lose everything... if only she could see that she has a real-life, too, full of friends and family who love her, and that it could save her.
