I just wanted to see you. Before the end. A taut psychological thriller about obsession, fame and betrayal, for fans of Black Mirror.
Cat is in love. Always the sensible one, she can’t believe that she’s actually dating, not to mention dating a star. But the fandom can’t know. They would eat her alive. And first at the buffet would definitely be her best friend, Evie.
Amy uses Heartstream, a social media app that allows others to feel your emotions. She broadcasted every moment of her mother’s degenerative illness, and her grief following her death. It’s the realest, rawest reality TV imaginable.
But on the day of Amy’s mother’s funeral, Amy finds a strange woman in her kitchen. She’s rigged herself and the house with explosives – and she’s been waiting to talk to Amy for a long time. Who is she? A crazed fan? What does she want?
Amy and Cat are about to discover how far true obsession can go.
Set aside plenty of time for the latest page-turner from Tom Pollock - once you're in, you won't be able to stop. HEARTSTREAM is a masterclass in suspense, and poses the chilling question of just how deep obsession can run. * Samantha Shannon * Such a riotous rollercoaster of a read - I was completely gripped from start to finish. * Sara Barnard * Scary, tense & moving in places, a salutary tale about the perils of our always connected online culture. Shows how easy it is for swathes of people to band together in support of what they perceive to be an injustice. Excellent YA read. * CILIP SLG * A deft, clever exploration of what it means to connect and be understood in a world where image and feelings are currency. * Melinda Salisbury * A chilling tale of the desperate hunt for real connection in a social media-driven world. * Amy McCulloch, author of Jinxed and The Potion Diaries *
