In Case You Missed It
Published by: Scholastic
Release Date: 09/12/2017
Sammy Wallach has epic plans for the end of junior year: Sneak out to city to see her favorite band. Get crush-worthy Jamie Moss to ask her to prom. Rock all tests (APs and driver’s).
With a few white lies, some killer flirting, and tons of practice, Sammy’s got things covered. That is, until the international bank her dad works for is attacked by hacktivists and they also manage to steal what’s on the Wallach family’s private cloud, including Sammy’s entire digital life. Literally the whole world has access to her emails, texts, photos, and worst of all, her journal.
Life. Is. Over.
Now Sammy’s best friends are furious about things she wrote, Jamie thinks she’s totally desperate, and she can barely show her face at school. Plus, her parents know all the rules she broke. Turns out, though, Sammy’s not the only one with secrets—her family has a few of its own that could change everything. But while the truth might set you free, no one said it was going to be painless. Or in Sammy’s case, private.
"An unnerving cautionary tale about misplaced digital trust and illusions of privacy.”
