Filter This: The modern, witty debut everyone is talking about

Sophie White

5 Reviews

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Filter This explores the chasm between life Online and IRL, where hiding from the little lies can easily become a fake haven from dealing with proper grown up stuff like death, loneliness, ambition, dishonesty and love.

'A modern, witty, razor-sharp page-turner' Emer McLysaght, co-author of the Aisling books

'Ali is one of the best flawed heroines in Irish commercial fiction since Rachel Walsh in Marian Keyes' ground-breaking Rachel's Holiday...' Sunday Times

'Hyper current ... hugely relevant' Irish Independent

'Modern and witty' Emer McLysaght, co-author of the Aisling books

'So sweet, so funny -- I loved it' Marian Keyes The Glossie Influencer Awards are fast approaching and Ali Jones is hell-bent on a win and breaking through 10,000 followers on Instagram. But when Ali inadvertantly leads people to believe she's pregnant, she quickly realises that playing the 'Mummy-Influencer' card could be her ticket to Insta-success. And she's not going to let a small detail like a fake pregnancy get in her way. Even if the reappearance of Tinder Sam, who seems determined to take his role of 'baby' daddy seriously, makes things a little more complicated ...

Elsewhere on Insta, Shelly Devine, Ireland's biggest influencer (and Ali's idol) is also guarding secrets from her followers, and her husband ...

Both Ali and Shelly have decisions to make but as the night of the Glossies draws near, will they realise what's important before they lose what matters most?

'Fresh, current and thoroughly enjoyable' Eithne Shortall

'Written with heart and humour, Filter This peels back the social media mask so many wear as a disguise and reveals the real people beneath' Cecelia Ahern
