- US Edition
A compelling and very pertinent story set around the realities of social media.
Annie Webb is constantly online. She loves following influencer accounts, DM’ing with her two best friends, Luna and Caitlin, and posting selfies with her adorable boyfriend, Jameson.
Then Jameson breaks up with Annie — online. The public humiliation is immediate and intense, and Annie is overwhelmed by the cruel comments that pour in. To help Annie cope, Luna and Caitlin make a plan: the three of them will stay off social media for a month. No posting. No scrolling. No cheating.
But unplugging is much harder than they thought. And when the rest of their school finds out about their offline challenge, can the three girls keep their vow — and their friendship?
