    What happens when an online friend becomes
    a real-life nightmare?
    Roisin hasn't made a single friend since moving from Ireland to
    Massachusetts. In fact, she is falling apart under constant
    abuse from a school bully, Zara. Zara torments Roisin in person
    and on social media. She makes Roisin the laughingstock of
    the whole school.


    Roisin feels utterly alone... until she bonds with
    Haley online. Finally there's someone who gets her. Haley
    is smart, strong, and shares anti-mean-girl memes that make Roisin
    laugh. Together, they are able to imagine what life could look
    like without Zara. Haley quickly becomes Roisin's lifeline.


    Then Zara has a painful accident, police investigate, and Roisin
    panics. Could her chats with Haley look incriminating?


    Roisin wants Haley to delete her copies of their messages, but
    when she tries to meet Haley in person, she can't find her anywhere.
    What's going on? Her best friend would never have lied to her,
    right? Or is Haley not who she says she is...




    With twists, turns, and lightning-fast pacing,
    this is a middle-grade thriller about bullying, revenge, and tech
    that young readers won't be able to put down.







    Praise
    for Friend Me:



    "Friend Me is a heart-racing escalation from toxic
    teen power play and the dangers of social media to a darkly searing
    near-future thriller. A stunning debut."
