As it seems with her new friends and soon she's caught in a maelstrom of lies misunderstandings accusations and counter accusations all happening very publicly in the relentless hyperconnected social media world from which there is no e. Going into this one I knew it would be a bit of a younger read than I am used to but as an educator I wanted to read this one to see if it would be a good fit for my school s library Social media is such a huge thing these days and the kids are obsessed with it It pains them to go a whole class period without having access to their phone They are always connected to one another so this book appealed to me as bullying over social media has become a huge problem in society I was a little nervous at the onset of the book as I felt the writing was a bit choppy and juvenile Thankfully that didn t end up becoming an issue as it seemed to even out and some of the sentences weren t cut as shortI felt Vail did a good job of portraying the usage of social media amongst these 8th graders as well as developing a coming of age story that many teens can relate to fitting in At this point in many teens lives they are still discovering themselves what they like who they are what they need and want from life Their friend circles are constantly changing and evolving and it s just a superficial time in schoolOur main character Truly is a sweet girl who just wants to fit in She is thrilled that her former best friend Natasha has taken an interest in her again and has invited her to sit at the Popular Table Truly is so desperate for that acceptance she doesn t realize that she is hurting her current best friend by leaving her behind in the dust She tries to justify it by saying if the tables were turned she would be happy for Hazel so Hazel should be happy for her Hazel is deeply hurt by Truly s actions and that hurt turns to anger and vengeance She wants to show Truly just how vapid Natasha is and ends up causing a chain reaction all based on what was posted via social media I could not stand Natasha She is a mean girl through and through and only talks to Truly again because she is trying to make sure everyone knows that she broke up with Clay and not the other way around She is constantly judging her and hates putting up with her but puts on that nice girl fa ade and gives Truly the impression she wants to be friends again The other characters were okay for me Brooke is the most popular of the group but she s actually a nice person She seems to get along with everyone and is secretly crushing on Clay her best friend for years Clay was also an okay character His issues with Natasha aren t important compared to the ones he faces at home and trying to live up to his brother It can t be easy living in his shadow and we get to see that firsthand with Clay Jack Clay s good friend is sweet on Truly and I thought he was adorable For being a jock he has all this nervous energy with her and it was cute I wish their storyline had been fleshed out a bit but Truly has uite a bit going on with all the drama surrounding herI found myself uite sucked in to the drama of this story I thought it was a pretty accurate description of the things these teens face on a daily basis and while their issues seem trivial and petty I remember it being a difficult time in life I wouldn t say this book is life changing but it does do a decent job of showing kids that
