Publish: 26 July 2018
My rating: ★★★☆☆ 3.8/5.0 stars
It took me a little while to grip me on the story but this is a new type of thriller that presented an issue of social media and I really enjoyed it.
Holly has became a celebrity blogger through her cancer fighting by posting a vegan diet on the Internet. Although many people gather around her and support her over the internet, one day, she was attacked by a stranger and got slushed her beautiful face. The attacker, Tyler holds firm on destroying Holly’s fame and her lies begin to exposed.
The story is real that explore the negative effects and obsession of social media that happens everywhere nowadays. How online could give huge influence to the people and the malicious reacts from the audiences. I enjoyed the thrill that Holly being put in the spot by Tyler and people even her supporters.
Holly and Tyler are narrators and they both have psychological problems. Although I enjoyed the story, the reason why I gave this book 3.8 stars is I couldn’t emphasize either of them. The people around those main characters are very nice that show the contrast.
As I was getting close to the last page, I was wondering how this story is going to end. The ending reveals the true Holly herself. On the social media, we sometimes pretend to be people that others like us to be.
This book gave me thrills and also taught me the dark side of social media that could happen around myself.
I marked this book as 3.8 stars.
