Status: COMPLETED ✅
Tessa Hart has a secret, but she's too scared to tell a soul. She dropped out of school six months ago for reasons she won't dare to speak aloud. Now, she spends her whole life glued to her phone, obsessing over her favorite pop star Eric Thorn. Eric's fandom offers her a taste of friendship maybe even love...
But this online world is full of secrets and betrayal, as Tessa will soon learn.
Told through tweets, DMs, and police interviews, this romantic thriller will keep you guessing through every shocking twist and turn.
The Main Characters
Tessa's world feels very small. Confined to her bedroom with agoraphobia, her one escape is the online fandom of pop-star Eric Thorn. When he tweets to his fans, it feels like he's speaking directly to her...
Eric Thorn tells his fans he loves them—but that's his PR team talking. The truth is, their single-minded devotion freaks him out. Especially when a fellow pop star winds up murdered...
No bio. No profile pic. No history. No one can ever know who Taylor is—or the secret reason for the hate-account that's out to destroy Eric Thorn's reputation...
When @EricThornSucks sets out to troll @TessaHeartsEric, things don't go quite as planned. An unexpected friendship forms, and late-night messages evolve into a deep connection. But online secrets have a way of coming out IRL. And with Eric Thorn himself involved, it won't be long before fandom turns to obsession... and a single stroke of the follow button turns deadly.
