#Antisocial by Jillian Blake

antisocialAntisocial by Jillian Blake is a young adult novel about teens dealing with social issues after their phones and social media accounts get hacked. Every photo, internet search and message on their phones are made public creating a lot of gossip at first but then it all turns crazy.  Anna Soler is a senior at Alexandria Prep High School. She just lost her boyfriend, Palmer Meade, who is also the star basketball player and none of her friends wants anything to do with her mainly because she ditched them for Palmer. Blake does a great job creating characters and settings that are modern day and current with today’s teens. I felt like the plot line was very believable and extremely interesting. While there were moments that I felt where cringe worthy, I still felt like I had to know what was going to happen next. This book as an element of rawness and vulnerability that young people today possess. I really felt like this book was a really fun read that I could not put down.   ** I received an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.** You can purchase your copy HERE. 

Synopsis: What if your greatest secrets became public? For the students at Alexandria Prep, a series of hacks leads to a scandalous firestorm—and the students are left wondering whose private photos and messages will be exposed next. It’s Pretty Little Liars meets WikiLeaks. 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.
