Antisocial - Jillian Blake | Waiting on Wednesday

4:02 PM

Waiting on Wednesday will feature books that I've missed and weren't included in my Anticipated New Releases but I'm also excited for. Today I'm waiting on Antisocial by Jillian Blake and it appears this is Jillian Blake's debut novel.

What I'm excited about for is that this book covers social issues including social media usage and just seems exciting. First, Alexandria Prep gets hacked and then one by one students start getting hacked. Messages, photos and secrets start being leaked and the MC tries to discover who's behind it all. I'm very excited to read this after reading the synopsis. I can't believe I haven't heard anything about this title.

Alexandria Prep is hacked in this whodunit set in the age of social media and the cloud.

Senior spring at Alexandria Prep was supposed to be for sleeping through class and partying with friends. But for Anna Soler, it’s going to be a lonely road. She’s just been dumped by her gorgeous basketball star boyfriend—with no explanation. Anna’s closest friends, the real ones she abandoned while dating him, are ignoring her. The endearing boy she’s always had a complicated friendship with is almost too sympathetic.

But suddenly Anna isn’t the only one whose life has been upended. Someone is determined to knock the kings and queens of the school off their thrones: one by one, their phones get hacked and their personal messages and photos are leaked. At first it’s funny—people love watching the dirty private lives of those they envy become all too public. 

Then the hacks escalate. Dark secrets are exposed, and lives are shattered. Chaos erupts at school. As Anna tries to save those she cares about most and to protect her own secrets, she begins to understand the reality of our always-connected lives: 

Sometimes we share too much.
