Follow Me Back Series: Follow Me Back (Book 1) Tell Me No Lies (Book 2)
"Debut author Geiger's social-media-saturated thriller (which fittingly got its start on Wattpad) should transfix teens for whom online relationships (romantic and otherwise) are integral parts of daily life, and catfishing and hacking are genuine fears. Tweets, direct messages, and police interrogation transcripts are incorporated throughout, throwing the reliability of both narrators into question and hinting at the sinister thread underlying this boy-meets-girl story. " — Publishers Weekly
"Pieces are revealed one at a time until they all come together at the end—right before everything falls apart before a final, dark twist. A page-turner for young adults invested in social media, fandoms, and mysteries." — School Library Journal
"This is a unique concept that will be well-received by older teens. The ending seems disjointed until the reader realizes it is so open-ended and mysterious that the reader is left wanting more. It is well written and covers some real dangers surrounding social media and predators." — School Library Connection
"Told though alternating points of view, tweets, and police reports, this novel is perfect for fans of Sara Shepard, April Henry, or Kimberly Derting. In her debut novel, Geiger creates a rich horror story which is all the more intriguing because of its conceivable possibilities. Using fan culture and social media communications to the best effect, she makes the setting and plot convincingly real." — VOYA Magazine
