Followers was a fun yet harrowing look at social media, technology, and the world of tomorrow.  Following two timelines, one in 2015 and one in 2051, we get a feel for the damage our technology use today could be causing us in our future.  Today's timeline follows the rise of an undeserving socialite and the tabloid writer who helps her rise to fame.  The future timeline follows a reality star in a community built for 24/7 "Truman show" like viewing funded by corporate sponsorships.  At times science fiction and at other times, more contemporary-genre like,  this book by Megan Angelo has something for everyone. It was extremely engrossing and I devoured the book in just 2 days.  Highly recommended, and I anticipate a screen adaptation at some point in the future (which would be almost ironic given the content).
