One viral photo. Four expelled teens. Everyone’s a suspect.

Will Foster’s Twitter account used to be anonymous—until someone posted The Photo that got him and three other students expelled, their futures ruined forever. But who took the picture, and why are they being targeted?

To uncover the truth, Will gets close to the suspects: the hacker, the quarterback, the bad girl, the class clown, the vice principal, and… his own best friend. What secrets are they hiding, and even worse—what do they know about each other? The terrible truth will haunt them forever.

New York Times bestselling author James Patterson brings us another fast-moving tale of suspense, with danger, romance, and twists and turns that will keep you guessing to the very last page.

A tireless champion of the power of books and reading, Patterson created a children’s book imprint, JIMMY Patterson, whose mission is simple: “We want every kid who finishes a JIMMY Book to say, ‘PLEASE GIVE ME ANOTHER BOOK.’” He has donated more than one million books to students and soldiers and funds over four hundred Teacher Education Scholarships at twenty-four colleges and universities. He has also donated millions of dollars to independent bookstores and school libraries. Patterson invests proceeds from the sales of JIMMY Patterson Books in pro-reading initiatives.

  1. The best part of social media, for me, is keeping in touch with friends and family who I rarely (or never) see. And also getting book updates and information on other current events.
    The worst part of social media is definitely the trolls and the bullying (the main reason that my public accounts have almost nothing of my personal life posted in them). Also, the posts by people just constantly need validation and attention (you know the ones…. I’m ugly, I’m failing at life, etc). I don’t encourage those posts, and therefore ignore them.
    I’ve really enjoyed James Patterson (a variety from different genres: YA, thriller, women’s fiction, and horror). Thanks for the chance.

  2. I love Facebook to keep up with old high school friends but some people post things that they would never say to someone’s face. 😦

  3. I like being able to find authors and books easily. Also I like the reading groups when they are friendly. Not a big fan when drama or politics hit my feeds.

  4. I love using social media to represent my views on the world and see how others feel as well. Unfortunately, that also leads to the downside of people arguing instead of taking time to listen to and respect one another.

  5. The best part of social media this year has been seeing all my friend’s kids in their awesome Halloween costumes. The worst part is the political arguments that go nowhere. Uggh!!

  6. The best part is being in the loop with friends you may have fallen out of touch with. The worst thing is some of the drama.

  7. The best part of social media is keeping up with family that lives far away. The worst part of social media is the unkind words that people can say to others.

  8. Social media is so much fun contacting people you lost contact with or keep up with what is happening in their lives. Congratulations on all the #1 best sellers!

  9. The best part of social media is finding out about new books and other interesting things.The worst part of social media is all the bullying.

  10. This is definitely a book that I wouldn’t expect from James Patterson so I’m really interesting in seeing how it turns out. I love the whole aspect of social media and how it sometimes can’t be as glamorous as we often make it.

  11. I love James Patterson and everything he has done for children’s literacy and independent booksellers. Expelled sounds like a timely story for young adults today with social media being such a prominent part of all our lives. The best thing for me is keeping in touch with family near and far. And the worst is the drama. I try to stear clear of it but seeing it does bother me. Thanks so much for the chance!

  12. The best part is keeping up with friends and family. The worst part is that people spend too much time connected to devices and not enough time living life.

  13. The best part is being able to keep in contact with family and friends who may not live close by at any time. The worst part is people expecting you to share everything with everybody on social media.

  14. The best part for me is being able to stay connected to family and friends. The worst part for me is the oversharing of information.

  15. The best part is keeping in touch with family out of state. The worst is the gossip and meanness of some people.

  16. The best part is to keep in touch with everyone, even old friends who you don’t talk to much but still consider friends. Downside is the addiction and the hate that it brings.

  17. the best part is getting to talk and see pics of family and friends that dont live close and entering sweepstakes ,the worst part is how facebook is always changing and how people get on here and act like they are someone else

  18. I think the best part of social media is being able to get in touch with people you otherwise wouldn’t be able to follow. The worst part is feeling guilty if you don’t keep up 24 hours a day.

  19. The best part of social media is that it’s easier to keep in touch with people you don’t see very often. The worst part is that people seem to think they can say anything because they aren’t saying it out loud and in person, but writing it (hiding behind the internet), which can lead to so many negative things.

  20. Best part keeping in with family and friends. Worst part many people lie and don’t stay faithful in relationships.
