If you’ve ever wondered what really goes on behind the scenes of your favorite TikToker or YouTuber’s life, Influence is the thriller for you. The novel follows the lives of different teen influencers in LA as they navigate blackmail, jealousy, and scathing social crowds. The girls are each at different stages in their influencer careers, but they share one thing in common: they have secrets that would destroy their perfect reputations forever. And their secrets are so deadly that someone might just end up murdered. Co-written by the author of Pretty Little Liars and an actual social media influencer, Influence is a fun and topical mystery full of drama, murder, and glam. It’s a quick read that will suck you into the mystery, only to leave you hanging at the end of each chapter. Each character is complex, interesting, and far more than meets the eye from their various social media channels. It will definitely make you wonder what the lives of your favorite influencers are really like, and what secrets they may have lurking.
