About this deal

This is Almond’s Insta life, but in reality, Almond is struggling, really struggling, from her parents’ divorce to self-harming, Almond is not in a good place and just as things can’t seem to get any worse, she then falls victim to an online troll, who not only takes her money, but her followers, public opinion and her sanity. There is so much more to this story that the 2000 character limit that Instagram won't allow me to bypass, such as fractious relationships; cyberbullying; a lil bit of romance for romance lovers. This book is incredibly readable and fast paced and tense at times, while also showing us Almond's developing relationships with her new friends (and boy she's interested in), as well as taking time for her complex relationship with her parents and gramma. Mel and Sid are determined to do this together, but they soon discover that pregnancy is totally different for boys and girls. Yourself and Bob are much cherished in our booky world and I personally really appreciate everything that you do.

A brilliant YA, regarding a subject that I think will only grow in the upcoming years, as the real life influencer kids grow up, and begin to question just how much of themselves they really want to share online. It seems that her life has been formed through her mother’s and then her own pages and product placement. I think this took a really good look at teen mental health through the lens of social media and influencing. writing style, at least that's what I thought, but the writing style isn't boring at all it's just different to what im used to reading but it honestly really grew to me, it was sarcastic, funny, trauma bonding without me actually having that trauma but it felt like I was almond.There is a lot to really enjoy in this story and there is great energy to the writing, as well as some fine characterization' - Peter James, award-winning and no.

But whilst there was darkness, Amara really focuses on building friendship and relationship which made not only Almond’s character flourish.With snappy pacing and an intriguing plot, the book can be devoured within a few hours, leaving a lasting impression. But I also feel like reporting it to the police should have been brought into the story much earlier and in much more detail than it was. Overall, I would highly recommend this book, it's so important for the society of social media lovers! Her love-hate relationship with her mother is especially compelling, and I thought Eve was a wonderful character despite her flaws. It sheds light on the intricacies of the online phenomenon of influencers and the impact it has on young minds.

I found the story itself really engaging, and something I’ve not seen much in ya fiction, and it had a great cast of characters and great writing. stars because everything I have said is really positive because I do think this book is a really good and important read but I have got some really mixed feelings about this book because I like it and the point it is just trying to make but than I am just getting bored at time and I really loved it in the middle but I thought it had a really slow start and thought the ending was a bit slow. Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously.We also have a burgeoning relationship with Almond and Joss from her therapy group - I felt like they fell in love too instantly for it to be truly realistic but it was cute.
