High school senior and internet sensation Madison Nakama seems to have it all: a happy family, good grades, and a massive online following for her pop-culture blog. But when her mother suddenly abandons the family, Madi finds herself struggling to keep up with all of her commitments.
Fandom to the rescue! As her online fans band together to help, an online/offline flirtation sparks with Laurent, a French exchange student. Their internet romance—played out in the comments section of her MadLibs blog—attracts the attention of an internet troll who threatens the separation of Madi’s real and online personas. With her carefully constructed life unraveling, Madi must uncover the hacker’s identity before he can do any more damage, or risk losing the people she loves the most… Laurent included.
I have received an advance readers copy of this novel from Netgalley and the publisher for an honest review.
Madi’s Blog MadLibs is more popular than she thought. With lots and lots of viewers and followers, Madi has found comfort in her online friends including Laurent. With this blossoming romance, Madi has found herself drowned and she must save herself before everything, incuding Laurent, is lost forever.
- There are really relatable scenarios in the novel. I, myself, sometimes vent out my anger, happiness and even frustrations out in social media. It is a way of releasing tension and feels. What I love about this novel is the way it captures the reality of being a blogger inside and out and how online friendship can be real.
