Don’t Follow Vee by Oliver Phommavanh
Vee wakes up every morning to her mum snapping a picture to put on her Instagram account ‘The Chronicles of Vee' – an account her mum started when she was a baby. Every year on her birthday, Vee’s mum asks if it’s ok to keep going with the account, and every year Vee has said yes, but when her mum starts doing things like making up stories that get Vee unwanted attention at school, and breaking Vee’s golden rule of not posting pictures of her friends, Vee starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop.
The problem is, being Insta-famous does have its perks, and what would her mum do if she wasn’t spending every waking moment analysing Instagram successes and failures?
This is an excellent middle-grade book about the internet, friendship, and family for readers 10+.
