Overview:
It’s all about the #Selfie.

She was the one girl I never wanted.

Until I had her.

One night.

One mistake.

Something we both wanted to forget.

I got rid of the proof. The one piece of evidence that could remind us both.

At least, I thought I did.

When it shows up on the school Buzzfeed, rumors fly. Friendships are tested and the feels get real.

I don’t do relationships. I don’t open my heart.

Especially for a girl everyone knows I hate.

What happens during spring break, stays in spring break.

Until it follows you home.

Genres: 
This series just keeps getting better and better. That simple statement is not one that I use all that often as many series go soft after the first installment. Hebert keeps it fresh, while tying it all to the previous books. She has a finesse about her writing, an innate ability to know when to inject humor and balance incredibly deep and troubling subjects. It made me grateful that she touches on the harsh and sometimes evil side of social media and the severe bullying that it causes. There are other topics I don't want to really spoil for you, so I'll just say she handles it truthfully and skillfully. 

I am beyond excited for book five.

Longer review coming.
