Lucy’s learned some important lessons from tabloid darling Jayla Heart’s all-too-public blunders: Avoid the spotlight, don’t feed the Internet trolls, and keep your secrets secret. The policy has served Lucy well all through high school, so when her best friend Ellie gets sick before prom and begs her to step in as Cole’s date, she accepts with a smile, silencing about ten different reservations. Like the one where she’d rather stay home shredding online zombies. And the one where she hates playing dress-up. And especially the one where she’s been secretly in love with Cole since the dawn of time.

When Cole surprises her at the after party with a kiss under the stars, it’s everything Lucy has ever dreamed of… and the biggest BFF deal-breaker ever. Despite Cole’s lingering sweetness, Lucy knows they’ll have to ’fess up to Ellie. But before they get the chance, Lucy’s own Facebook profile mysteriously explodes with compromising pics of her and Cole, along with tons of other students’ party indiscretions. Tagged. Liked. And furiously viral.

By Monday morning, Lucy’s been branded a slut, a backstabber, and a narc, mired in a tabloid-worthy scandal just weeks before graduation.

Lucy’s been battling undead masses online long enough to know there’s only one way to survive a disaster of this magnitude: Stand up and fight. Game plan? Uncover and expose the Facebook hacker, win back her best friend’s trust, and graduate with a clean slate.

There’s just one snag—Cole. Turns out Lucy’s not the only one who’s been harboring unrequited love…

——> This OR That with Sophie!

Fiction or Non-Fiction? Fiction

Tea or Coffee? Both! Coffee is a must-have for mornings. At night I like tea.

Physical Books or E-books? Both! I’m a total book sniffer, so I’ll always have a spot in my heart for physical books. I used to be one of those people who said I’d never get an e-reader… until I received one as a gift. I LOVE it. Basically, I’ll take my books any way I can get ‘em!


Writing in the Morning or in the Afternoon/Evening? It’s different every day. I no longer have a set routine, but I generally feel more creative late at night.

Dinner or Dessert? Dessert for dinner!

Comedies or Dramas? Both. But I haven’t seen a great comedy in a long time. Today’s trend of cruelty-as-humor or lady-bashing-as-humor doesn’t do it for me.

Pen or Pencil? Both. Depends on the mood. They each have a different feel on the page. But if I’m writing something I want to last, like a journal entry or letter, pen for sure.

Sleeping In or Waking Early? Sleeping in! It’s one of the perks of working from home.

The Past or the Future? The present. It’s all we have!

Being Outdoors or Indoors? Outdoors! Put me up on a mountain or out by the sea.

Dusk or Dawn? Generally I only see the dawn if I’m still up from the night before. So, dusk!

Chocolate or Vanilla? What kind of question is this? CHOCOLATE!

The Beginning of a Story or The End? Love them both, but there’s something especially magical about the start of a new writing or reading adventure.
