Thank you Gallery Books for my free copy of “Follow Me” by Kathleen Barber!
From the author of “Are You Sleeping” (also called “Truth Be Told”) comes a cautionary tale of oversharing in the social media age.
Everyone wants new followers…until they follow you home.
Audrey Miller has an enviable new job at the Smithsonian, a body by reformer Pilates, an apartment door with a broken lock, & hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers to bear witness to it all. Having just moved to Washington, DC, Audrey busies herself impressing her new boss, interacting with her online fan base, & staving off a creepy upstairs neighbor with the help of the only two people she knows in town: an ex-boyfriend she can’t stay away from & a sorority sister with a high-powered job & a mysterious past.
But Audrey’s faulty door may be the least of her security concerns. Unbeknownst to her, her move has brought her within striking distance of someone who’s obsessively followed her social media presence for years—from her first WordPress blog to her most recent Instagram Story. No longer content to simply follow her carefully curated life from a distance, he consults the dark web for advice on how to make Audrey his & his alone. In his quest to win her heart, nothing is off-limits—& nothing is private.
Instagram, followers, influencers, blogs, stalkers, the Dark Web…oh yeah, it’s all in here! All scary stuff I worry about all the time when it comes to having several social media accounts & followers all over the world. As someone who is on Instagram daily (and way too much), this book is suspenseful, creepy, intense, & thought-provoking. Reminded me of the movie “Ingrid Goes West” starring Aubrey Plaza, but more intense like Caroline Kepnes’ “You”.
I highly recommend “Follow Me” which comes out tomorrow, 2/25. Add it to your TBR today!!
