      The Book: 

        Such a Bad Influence by Olivia Muenter

          About the book:

          One of Electric Literature's Best Books of Spring 2024, According to Indie Booksellers!
          The book follows the investigation around a second-generation influencer who disappears during a live stream. Told through the POV of her social-media-skeptical older sister as she tries to piece together what happened.
          Hazel Davis is drifting: she’s stalled in her career, living in a city she hates, and less successful than her younger sister @evelyn, a lifestyle influencer. Evie came of age on the family YouTube channel after a viral video when she was five. Ten years older and spotlight-averse, Hazel managed to dodge the family business—so although she can barely afford her apartment, at least she made her own way.

          Evie is eighteen now, with a multimillion-dollar career, but Hazel is still protective of her little sister and skeptical of the way everyone seems to want a piece of her: Evie’s followers, her YouTuber boyfriend and influencer frenemies, and their opportunistic mother. So when Evie disappears one day during an unsettling live stream that cuts out midsentence, Hazel is horrified to have her worst instincts proven right.

          As theories about Evie’s disappearance tear through the internet, inspiring hashtags, Reddit threads, and podcast episodes, Hazel throws herself into the darkest parts of her sister’s world to untangle the truth. After all, Hazel knows Evie better than anyone else . . . doesn’t she?

          "Packed with trenchant critiques of internet celebrity and topped off by a satisfyingly nasty finale, this leaves readers wanting more from Muenter." - Publishers Weekly, starred review

          "This unsettling plot is delivered with a sense of humor and is filled with twists and turns that are sure to inspire a buzz within the thriller community. The shocking ending will leave readers wanting more. Muenter is a fresh new voice with a compelling perspective." - Jayme Oldham, Booklist

          "Timely, riveting. . . . This story is as addictive as scrolling Instagram, and marks the launch of a talented new writer." - Ashley Winstead, author of Midnight Is the Darkest Hour
