We’ve all done it, spoken too soon.
Vanessa can tell you, heck it happened
so fast. you nonchalantly offer to help,
which sounds cool and supportive,
but as soon as the words Leave your mouth,
you wish with every fiber of your being
that you could get a do-over.
your help puts a target on your back
so you wish there was another way.

But those whom you care about are
counting on you, thus the emotional
tear of love and loyalty. FriendMe –
what would you Do ? is the sophomore
installment of the quartet to
Followed – who’s Following YOU? and
explores the twists and turns of yet
another high school year where the
more things change, the more they
stay the same (and not in a good way).

What People Say about Followed:

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

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.
