Description

"Beyond being a brilliant skewering of social media and influencer culture, People Like Her is, quite simply, a damn good thriller . . . With three unreliable narrators, the novel reads like Gone Girl on steroids in all the best ways."— Bookreporter.com

"Breathlessly fast, brilliantly original. Bravo, Ellery Lloyd!"—Clare Mackintosh, New York Times bestselling author of After the End

A razor-sharp, wickedly smart suspense debut about an ambitious influencer mom whose soaring success threatens her marriage, her morals, and her family's safety.Followed by Millions, Watched by One

To her adoring fans, Emmy Jackson, aka @the_mamabare, is the honest "Instamum" who always tells it like it is.

To her skeptical husband, a washed-up novelist who knows just how creative Emmy can be with the truth, she is a breadwinning powerhouse chillingly brilliant at monetizing the intimate details of their family life.

To one of Emmy's dangerously obsessive followers, she's the woman that has everything—but deserves none of it.

As Emmy's marriage begins to crack under the strain of her growing success and her moral compass veers wildly off course, the more vulnerable she becomes to a very real danger circling ever closer to her family.

In this deeply addictive tale of psychological suspense, Ellery Lloyd raises important questions about technology, social media celebrity, and the way we live today. Probing the dark side of influencer culture and the perils of parenting online, People Like Her explores our desperate need to be seen and the lengths we'll go to be liked by strangers. It asks what—and who—we sacrifice when make our private lives public, and ultimately lose control of who we let in. . . .

        November 16, 2020
        With a million-plus Instagram followers, former fashion editor Emmy Jackson, the co-narrator of this unnerving debut from the pseudonymous Lloyd (husband-and-wife writing team Collette Lyons and Paul Vlitos), is Britain’s most famous Instamum. Emmy claims her Mamabare account offers an unfiltered view of life raising three-year-old Coco and five-week-old Bear, but Emmy’s embittered husband and co-narrator, Dan, can attest that her posts contain about as much truth as the novel he published eight years ago. Still, without Emmy’s endorsement deals, they couldn’t pay their bills, so Dan (aka Papabare) keeps quiet and plays his part. Little do the Jacksons know, someone watching their lives unfold online deeply resents their “perfectly imperfect” existence, and is determined to destroy it. Some of the multilayered plot’s more nefarious twists strain credulity, but clever red herrings, sharply drawn characters, and steadily mounting dread largely compensate. Lloyd dramatically highlights the artificiality of influencer culture and the toxicity of society’s social media obsession. Agent: Hillary Jacobson, ICM Partners.

      • content: Narrators Nathalie Buscombe, Finlay Robertson, and Anna Bentinck team up to perform this thriller, which examines the dangers and ironies of becoming an influencer. Buscombe portrays Emmy, aka Mamabare, whose carefully calculated imperfect perfection has turned her Instagram account into a major money earner, allowing her to support her husband, Dan, portrayed by Robertson, a one-trick novelist, and their children in a manner far above their means. The family is living the dream until, despite their best efforts, their privacy is breached. Bentinck performs the sections told by a vengeful stalker who blames Emily and her off-the-cuff sponsored advice for destroying her life. Each narrator expertly mimics their character's thoughts, such as Emily's flawed self-awareness, Dan's multiple frustrations, and the stalker's smug judgments.
