Influence

by Sara Shepard; Lilia Buckingham

Pub Date: 05 Jan 2021

Might have been my disinterest, disdain, or dread of the effect social media has on this generation of teens that initially had me turned off, but as the plot developed, there was a real story behind all of the 'influencing' going on.
