Book Review: Shame On You

12 February 2018|

Title: Shame On You

Author: Amy Heydenrych

Genre: Psychological Thriller

Main Characters:

  • Holly – social media sensation and health guru


You think you know her…

Meet Holly.

Social media sensation. The face of clean eating.

Everyone loves her. Everyone wants to be her.

Or do they?

When Holly is attacked by a man she’s only just met, her life starts to spiral out of control. Was she targeted because of her online wellness empire, or is there a darker reason behind the attack? He seemed to know her – but she doesn’t know him.

Or does she?

What if Holly isn’t who she seems to be? What if Holly’s living a lie?

But surely we all lie a bit online, don’t we…?


Holy cow! This is hectic and crazy and so twisted. But also so real and so raw. This is happening in real life. Every day. I loved the way this book highlights the pros and cons of highlight and exposing our lives on social media – but it also rocked me that some people are so desperate and so reliant on their likes and comments online. It was even more scary for me as a mama of three girls… A brilliant read!

Have you read it? What did you think?

Any other good book recommendations?
