What People Say about Followed:

Overall the book was very insightful and made me rethink the way I use social media.


Student, 17

Relatable storyline for the youth that they face daily. The story will help parents and students with conversations that are needed. Social media is a real life tattoo, except it is almost impossible to erase!

That was scary. I didn’t know some of this stuff. Thank you for writing this story.

Cory Alexander’s book, Followed, describes what it’s like to be a kid using the Internet, specifically on social media. It scared the heck out of me. But, it also opened my eyes to a reality with which I was unfamiliar, and has actually helped me become a better parent… My daughter just began reading it and she can’t put it down.
