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.

I hope Followers is as good as the cover is creepy. There aren’t enough of this type of book in YA.




  1. I’m not sure I’m here for the creepy factor, but, the theatre nerd inside me is screaming YES!!! I never would have known this book had anything to do with theatre just by looking at it. So, I’m sold, for now.

  7. I’m currently reading Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None and the sound of this reminded me of it, and whilst creepy murdur stories (creepy in general) is definitely not my thing AT ALL, I think this one has definite promise and could be really well done, which surprises me because I hadn’t heard of it before today and as I started reading the synopsis it didn’t seem like a book I would choose to read. Now I’m adding it to my tbr! Thanks for sharing- I hope we both enjoy it!

  8. That sounds like such a fun read! I’ll definitely be checking this one out when it comes out.
