Living life strictly below the radar after her only friend moves away, Vicky, determined to put off her mother's intervention, Photoshops herself into pictures that she posts online before meeting numerous people who feel just as alone and ignored as she does. By the author of Between the Notes. Simultaneous eBook. 30,000 first printing.

HARPERCOLL

From the author of Between the Notes comes a story that shines a light on our love of social media and how sometimes being the person you think you want to be isn’t as great as being the person you truly are. Perfect for fans of Vivi Greene’s Sing and Susane Colasanti’s Now and Forever.

Vicky Decker’s social anxiety has helped her to master the art of hiding in plain sight, appearing only to her best friend, Jenna. But when Jenna moves away, Vicky’s isolation becomes unbearable. So she decides to invent a social life by Photoshopping herself into other people’s photos and posting them on Instagram under the screen name Vicurious.

Instantly, she begins to get followers, and soon, Vicky has made a whole new life for herself without ever leaving her bedroom. But the more followers she amasses online, the clearer it becomes that there are a lot of people out there who feel like her—#alone and #ignored in real life. To help them, and herself, she must stop living vicariously and start bringing the magic of Vicurious back to life.

I wasn't really expecting to connect with this book as much as I did. It does a wonderful job portraying social anxiety. I liked that Vicky wasn't just a product of her environment which could have been full of bullies, abuse, etc. Social anxiety might come from those things, but it doesn't have to. Its often the "normal" things that are the most intimidating.

Usually I avoid books with obvious messages, but I feel like the author didn't sacrifice anything for that message. Characters and relationships were all very realistic. The conflicts played out in a realistic fashion. Definitely a solid read.
