This week I can’t wait for:

This Is Not the Jess Show (This Is Not the Jess Show, #1)

This is Not the Jess Show by Anna Carey

Expected publication: 2 February 2021

Publisher: Quirk Books

From Goodreads:

Black Mirror meets My So-Called Life in this fast-paced, timely YA thriller about separating fact from fiction–and how far we’ll go to create our own version of reality.

Like any other teenager, Jess Flynn is just trying to get through her junior year without drama … but drama seems to keep finding her. Between a new crush on her childhood best friend, overprotective parents cramping her social life, and her younger sister’s worsening health, the only constant is change–and her hometown of Swickley, which feels smaller by the day.

Swickley is getting weirder by the day, too. Half the population has been struck down by a mysterious flu. Conversations end awkwardly when Jess enters the room. And then one day, a tiny, sleek black device–with an apple logo on it–falls out of her best friend’s backpack and lands at Jess’s feet.

Why I Can’t Wait for this book:

The Truman Show was my favourite film for a long time. I’m really hyped for a book that takes that concept and applies it to a female teen. I even love the title! I hope lots of people say that to Jess in the novel.
