From the author of Between the Notes comes a story that shines a light on our love of social media and how sometimes being the person you think you want to be isn’t as great as being the person you truly are. Perfect for fans of Vivi Greene’s Sing and Susane Colasanti’s Now and Forever.

Vicky Decker’s social anxiety has helped her to master the art of hiding in plain sight, appearing only to her best friend, Jenna. But when Jenna moves away, Vicky’s isolation becomes unbearable. So she decides to invent a social life by Photoshopping herself into other people’s photos and posting them on Instagram under the screen name Vicurious.

Instantly, she begins to get followers, and soon, Vicky has made a whole new life for herself without ever leaving her bedroom. But the more followers she amasses online, the clearer it becomes that there are a lot of people out there who feel like her—#alone and #ignored in real life. To help them, and herself, she must stop living vicariously and start bringing the magic of Vicurious back to life. 

Sharon Huss Roat grew up in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and now lives in Delaware with her husband and her two children. She worked in public relations for twenty years before becoming a writer. Between the Notes was her first novel. This is her second.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great read *The author provided me a early copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review: I very much enjoyed this book, while it is sometimes slightly predictable, it is a very well written book, and shows that its OK to be in the shadows and its okay to come into the light.
