To tweet or not to tweet . . . what a deadly question.

When Briana loses out on a starring role in the school’s production of Hamlet, she reluctantly agrees to be the drama department’s “social media director” and starts tweeting half-hearted updates. She barely has any followers, so when someone hacks her twitter account, Briana can’t muster the energy to stop it. After all, tweets like “Something’s rotten in the state of Denmark . . . and a body’s rotting in the theater” are obviously a joke.

But then a body IS discovered in the theater: Briana’s rival. Suddenly, what seemed like a prank turns deadly serious. To everyone’s horror, the grisly tweets continue . . . and the body count starts to rise.

There’s no other explanation; someone is live-tweeting murders on campus.

With the school in chaos and the police unable to find the culprit, it’s up to Briana to unmask the psycho-tweeter before the carnage reaches Shakespearian proportions . . . or she becomes the next victim.

Why I’m Waiting
Hello creepy cover! Everything about this book screams “READ ASAP” to me. This sounds so good. I love my murder mysteries and FOLLOWERS seems like a book completely up my alley. And in the day and age of twitter and sharing everything on the internet, this seems like something scary realistic. I can’t wait for this book!

What are you waiting on this week?

    Oh gosh…that sounds 100% disturbing and just the kind of book I want to read. ASAP. I love it how books are using stuff that we use today, like tweeting. 😉 Though it does make me wonder if they’ll be weird and outdated in 10 years time? *shrugs* Oh well. I want to read this!
