In middle school, nothing is more important than friendship.
When Truly is invited to sit at the Popular Table with the group she has dreamed of joining, she can hardly believe her luck. Everyone seems so nice, so kind to one another. But all is not as it seems with her new friends, and soon she's caught in a maelstrom of lies, misunderstandings, accusations and counter-accusations, all happening very publicly in the relentless, hyper-connected social media world from which there is no escape.
Six eighth-graders, four girls and two boys, struggle to understand and process their fractured glimpses into one another's lives as they find new ways to disconnect, but also to connect, in Rachel Vail's richest and most searching book.

I love this book. I'm in middle school and I love realistic fiction. If you love books with middle school or high school like topics and realistic fiction listen to this audiobook... (I love books like this, try the sample.)👁❤️this📖
It was sort of boring at first, but in around chapter 30 things really started to heat up, and I fell in love with Unfriended. My favorite thing about this book is that I know that a lot of people can relate to this story, I know I can.
I did not want to read this book because of the subject matter. I hate cyber bullying and expected this to be painful, (I was required to "read" this), so I figured Audible could help me out. The multiple voice narration was excellent and made an otherwise painful topic doable for me. Having the story told from six points of view, including the bully's, was well done. I would recommend this for any teen dealing with bullying and any parent who would like to understand this a little better. I ended up liking the story more than expected, and the ending, in which some of these middle school characters showed surprising maturity, made the story more worthwhile.
