Publisher's Summary

What if your greatest secrets became public? For the students at Alexandria Prep, a series of hacks leads to a scandalous firestorm - and the students are left wondering whose private photos and messages will be exposed next. It's Pretty Little Liars meets WikiLeaks.
Senior spring at Alexandria Prep was supposed to be for sleeping through class and partying with friends. But for Anna Soler, it's going to be a lonely road. She's just been dumped by her gorgeous basketball star boyfriend - with no explanation. Anna's closest friends, the real ones she abandoned while dating him, are ignoring her. The endearing boy she's always had a complicated friendship with is almost too sympathetic.
But suddenly Anna isn't the only one whose life has been upended. Someone is determined to knock the kings and queens of the school off their thrones: one by one, their phones get hacked and their personal messages and photos are leaked. At first it's funny - people love watching the dirty private lives of those they envy become all too public.
Then the hacks escalate. Dark secrets are exposed, and lives are shattered. Chaos erupts at school. As Anna tries to save those she cares about most and to protect her own secrets, she begins to understand the reality of our always-connected lives.
Sometimes we share too much.

Any additional comments?

What if your greatest secrets became public? Just imagine for a minute virtually ANY place that you committed something to word or photo becoming public, say over the last year. Yikes! Not just any and all social media, but even private emails and texts. All public. All drizzled out to the world at a rate of many a day in your schools, work places, churches and homes. Can you even imagine the scandal or the pain this would cause? Now, add to that the anxiety that would accompany these technological hacks by having to wait over a period of weeks to see when YOUR private information was leaked to your world.
At first it’s probably kind of funny, when it’s someone else because sadly people love watching the shocking, scandalous, dark and dirty private lives of those they envy or dislike become all too public thus knocking them off their pedestals. That is until the hacks escalate and find US or those closest to us. They find the things we just rolled off the cuff while we were mad or scared or jealous. They find our deepest darkest secrets because of course anything we’ve ever searched online is found too.
Lives would be shattered, chaos would erupt, friendships and family ties would be severed. This debut novel is more real time, real world than I like to imagine-it’s a wake-up call on steroids! Wake up peeps! If you didn’t have anxiety over digital and personal privacy before you read it, you surely will after.
