So often people use their anonymity to be trolls and leave terrible comments on people's pages. I love that Vicky used hers for something admirable. I looked forward to reading this book any time I had a break. It is easy to see how someone could become so dependent on social media.

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.
