People Like Her

Ellery Lloyd

See more book details



She has an easy life – but makes a living from pretending otherwise.
She has a husband who hates the spotlight – but can't step away.
She has a million followers who adore her – but one who wants her to suffer.
She hasn't realised her family is in danger yet – but she will.

A smart and thrilling debut that delves into the darkest aspects of influencer culture, Ellery Lloyd's People Like Her is about what you risk losing when you don't know who’s watching…

People like Emmy Jackson. They always have. Especially online, where she is Instagram sensation Mamabare, famous for always telling the unvarnished truth about modern parenthood.

But Emmy isn't as honest as she'd like the fans to believe. She may think she has her followers fooled, but someone out there knows the truth and plans to make her pay. Because people like her have no idea what pain careless words can cause. Because people like her need to learn what it feels like to lose everything . . .

In the media
Suspenseful, thought-provoking, clever, and I suspected everyone. The insights into human nature were spot-on, the characters felt true to life and I was genuinely gripped . . . A truly brilliant and a refreshingly original read

Karen Hamilton, author of The Last Wife and The Perfect Girlfriend

Don’t read this book on the train – I missed my stop . . . On one level, People Like Her is a thrilling, witty pageturner that makes you laugh out loud. But on another, it is a sharp dissection of a very modern way of life [and] will make you look at 21st century life in a different way

Holly Watt, author of To The Lions

I loved it! I was actually holding my breath towards the end. Such a chillingly dark examination of what can happen if you filter the reality. . . through Instagram & pretend to be someone you’re not
