about

Cassie McKinney has always believed in the Hive.

Social media used to be out of control, after all. People were torn apart by trolls and doxxers. Even hackers --- like Cassie's dad --- were powerless against it.

One moment Cassie is anonymous; the next, she's infamous. And running for her life.

With nowhere to turn, she must learn to rely on herself --- and a group of Hive outcasts who may not be reliable --- as she slowly uncovers the truth about the machine behind the Hive.

Editorial Reviews

A brilliant doomsday warning about the perils of social media, justice, and mob thought, The Hive is also the complex story of a young girl coming of age. This is a novel about ideas, love, grief, and what hold the tricky narratives of history have on the violence of the present.-Walter Mosley, award-winning crime novelist
