Twittercide [twit-er-sahyd]: the killing of one human being by another while the victim is in the act of tweeting.

Call me crazy, but I figured writing for the Herbert Hoover High Homepage would be a pretty sweet gig. Pad the resume for college applications, get a first look at the gossip column, spend some time ogling the paper’s brooding bad-boy editor, Chase Erikson. But on my first big story, things went... a little south. What should have been a normal interview with Sydney Sanders turned into me discovering the Homecoming Queen-hopeful dead in her pool. Electrocuted while Tweeting. Now, in addition to developing a reputation as HHH’s resident body finder, I’m stuck trying to prove that Sydney’s death wasn’t suicide.

I’m starting to long for the days when my biggest worry was whether the cafeteria was serving pizza sticks or Tuesday Tacos...
You know, I had low expectations for Deadly Cool, the first book in this series because, frankly, I thought it was going to take itself far too seriously and turn out to be a hot mess. Kudos to the book for proving me wrong. So, naturally, when I saw there was going to be a second book, I was just itching for it! I'm so stoked to have and ARC for Social Suicide because if it's anything like its predecessor, it's going to be ironic, quirky and downright entertaining, which is refreshing. It's always nice to read a book that's not afraid to be different, and it certainly doesn't hurt that the cover is lovely!


  1. Great pick!!Cant wait!


  2. I've yet to read Deadly Cool, but I've heard amazing things! And Twittercide? LOL!
