Synopsis from Goodreads: The perfect life? ...Or the perfect lie?

When Regi moves into her new houseshare, she's ready for a clean slate. A new home. A new routine. A new identity...

Desperate to escape the shadow of her past that follows her everywhere she goes, Regi finds the ideal distraction in the perfect lives of others on social media.

But as innocent scrolling turns into an unhealthy obsession, Regi will soon learn that seeking perfection comes at a price...

My Review: This wasn't a bad book but it was not at all what I was expecting. The story claims to be a psychological thriller but it was less thriller than character study. Which is fine but it was not what I was in the mood for. I did feel like the mental health aspect of the story, Regi's anxiety and OCD were portrayed very well and well explained. Other than that though I was fairly bored for most of the book though and overall just didn't really enjoy it.

*I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All opinions are my own.*
