Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Can Ali and Shelly navigate the stormy waters of the Instagram world and keep their integrity in tact?

'White's sharp-eyed take on modern life couldn't be more on target and fans of the equally readable Aisling series by Sarah Breen and Emer McLysaght will doubtless lap up White's mad world.' Irish Independent

Ali and Shelly are back. But behind the filters, things are more chaotic than ever.

After faking a pregnancy to gain more Instagram followers, Ali Jones figured she'd be an internet pariah. But while her mentions are a mess, it turns out that her following is bigger than ever. And now that she's pregnant for real, Ali quickly realises that she might have to wade once more into the Insta-world to fund the new baby bump. With Sam, her ex, still ignoring her and her mother having a mild grief-induced psychotic breakdown, what else has Ali to cling to but #sponcons and #ootds?

Enter Amy Donoghue, social media manager extraordinaire, with a plan to rehabilitate Ali's image.

Meanwhile, Queen of the Influencers, Shelly, is still being hounded by her mysterious Insta-stalker. And with @HolisticHazel busy creating W Y N D festival (her answer to the Goop Summit) and @PollysFewBits being as non-descript as ever, Shelly has to deal with this latest drama without the help of her Mumfluencer friends - before it gets out of control.

The free swag may be good but will Ali and Shelly realise the Insta Life's not worth losing the people that matter most?
