One viral photo. Four expelled teens. Everyone’s a suspect.
Will Foster’s Twitter account used to be anonymous—until someone posted The Photo that got him and three other students expelled, their futures ruined forever. But who took the picture, and why are they being targeted?
To uncover the truth, Will gets close to the suspects: the hacker, the quarterback, the bad girl, the class clown, the vice principal, and… his own best friend. What secrets are they hiding, and even worse—what do they know about each other? The terrible truth will haunt them forever.
New York Times bestselling author James Patterson brings us another fast-moving tale of suspense, with danger, romance, and twists and turns that will keep you guessing to the very last page.
About the Author
James Patterson received the Literarian Award for Outstanding Service to the American Literary Community from the National Book Foundation. He holds the Guinness World Record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers, including Confessions of a Murder Suspect and the Maximum Ride series, and his books have sold more than 350 million copies worldwide. A tireless champion of the power of books and reading, Patterson created a children’s book imprint, JIMMY Patterson, whose mission is simple: “We want every kid who finishes a JIMMY Book to say, ‘PLEASE GIVE ME ANOTHER BOOK.’” He has donated more than one million books to students and soldiers and funds over four hundred Teacher Education Scholarships at twenty-four colleges and universities. He has also donated millions of dollars to independent bookstores and school libraries. Patterson invests proceeds from the sales of JIMMY Patterson Books in pro-reading initiatives.
SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE AWFUL TRUTH
Growing up, I didn’t have the pressure of social networking so a lot of my mistakes were unrecorded. Teens these days can have their reputations torn apart in seconds in a game that is essentially a high tech version of a game I used to play called Telephone. One person whispers a secret and it is passed from person to person and then you see exactly how a story can be changed, be embellished or completely modified so it no longer resembles the truth. These days a small rumor can be turned into a lethal untruth.
My niece was subject to these stories when a few girls got together and decided to ruin her life because one of them wanted to go out with a boy who liked her. They used twitter, instagram, and facebook to try to ruin her life. She ended up being homeschooled for two years until the other ended up at different schools. She did have a moment of revenge when she was voted Homecoming Queen. To this day, she is still not on any social media.
