"The Prom Queen of Instagram" meets We Are Okay in this totally enthralling, emotionally deep, contemporary YA.
Things Lulu Shapiro's 10,000 Flash followers don't know about her:
* That the video of her with another girl was never supposed to go public.
* That Owen definitely wasn't supposed to break up with her because of it.
* That behind the carefully crafted selfies and scenes Lulu projects onto people's screens, her life feels like a terrible, uncertain mess.
Then Lulu meets Cass. Cass isn't interested in looking at Lulu's life, only in living in it. And The Hotel--a gorgeous space with an intriguing, Old Hollywood history and a trust-fund kid to restore it--seems like the perfect, secret place for them to get to know each other. But just because Lulu has stepped out of the spotlight doesn't mean it'll stop following her every move.
Look is for fans of Emergency Contact, Everything, Everything, and We Are Okay. It's a story about what you present vs. who you really are, about real intimacy and manufactured intimacy and the blurring of that line. It's a deceptively glamorous, feminist, emotionally complex, utterly compelling, queer coming-of-age novel about falling in love and taking ownership of your own self--your whole self--in the age of social media.
