I would give this book 3 for a review.
When Ella Karman debuts on the Social Stock Exchange, she finds out life as a high-profile “Influencer” isn’t what she expected. Everyone around her is consumed by their rankings, in creating the smoke and mirrors that make them the envy of the world.
But then Ella’s best friend betrays her, her rankings tank, and she loses―everything.
Leaving her old life behind, she joins Keystone, a secret school for thieves, where students are being trained to steal everything analog and original because something―or someone―is changing history to suit their needs.
Partnered with the annoyingly hot―and utterly impossible―Garrett Alexander, who has plenty of his own secrets, Ella is forced to return to the Influencer world, while unraveling a conspiracy that began decades ago.
One wrong move and she could lose everything―again.
I loved the start of this read. I also really liked the lead characters and the world building and the setting of this story. I loved the hesit themed elements in this mystery and thriller story. I did not feel super engaged in thew writing and it sometimes took me out of the story at points. I liked that we had a such a wide cast of characters but they all did not feel well developed. I thought that this book even thought it will be series was a solid conclusion for the first book in the series. It was very unique premise and I would def read more by this author in the future!
