Someone is stalking Audrey. Audrey doesn’t care as long as her million followers continue to “Follow Me”.
Audrey, you see, is that annoying “Insta influencer” that all your friends are talking about. Cat is her sole IRL friend from her college sorority. A successful attorney now, Cat is an introvert who envies Audrey’s impulsiveness even while cautioning Audrey about the risks she is taking. For example, Audrey leases an apartment online when moving to Washington D.C. for a new job. Of course, it is in the basement. It also comes with bars on the windows, multiple locks on the door (most without keys), and a creepy upstairs neighbor.
Follow Me is intended to be a cautionary tale about oversharing in a connected world. Unfortunately, I hated Audrey so much that I was rooting for her unnamed stalker to kill her (or at least make her shut up about herself for five minutes). The book is a whirlwind down a rabbit hole—both fast-paced and compelling. If only I didn’t hate Audrey so much… Overall, 3.5 stars!
