Who R U Really?

Margo Kelly will celebrate the release of her debut novel this September, and I have the privilege of hosting her cover reveal!

(Yes, I was her critique partner for this book so it’s possible I might be a bit biased, but regardless…you will LOVE it!)

This book kept me up late at night many a time, thinking about both how great this book is, AND being freaked out because it’s a fantastically plotted work of art that will keep you turning page after page long past your bedtime.

Can you tell I’m just a little bit excited?! I love this book and you will too!

To celebrate the cover reveal for Who R U Really? Margo Kelly is giving away TWO Advance Reader Copies of the book! Visit www.margokelly.net to enter by Sunday, May 11, 2014!

Without further ado, here’s a bit about Who R U Really?…


Adobe Photoshop PDFThea’s overprotective parents are driving her insane. They invade her privacy, ask too many questions, and restrict her online time so severely that Thea feels she has no life at all. When she discovers a new role-playing game online, Thea breaks the rules by staying up late to play. She’s living a double life: on one hand, the obedient daughter; on the other, a girl slipping deeper into darkness. In the world of the game, Thea falls under the spell of Kit, an older boy whose smarts and savvy can’t defeat his loneliness and near-suicidal despair. As Kit draws soft-hearted Thea into his drama, she creates a full plate of cover stories for her parents and then even her friends.

Soon, Thea is all alone in the dark world with Kit, who worries her more and more, but also seems to be the only person who really “gets” her. Is he frightening, the way he seems sometimes, or only terribly sad? Should Thea fear Kit, or pity him? And now, Kit wants to come out of the screen and bring Thea into his real-life world. As much as she suspects that this is wrong, Thea is powerless to resist Kit’s allure, and hurtles toward the same dark fate her parents feared most. Ripped from a real-life story of Internet stalking, Who R U Really? will excite you and scare you, as Thea’s life spins out of control.

  1. Congrats, Margo. Because of our kind mutual friend, Christi, I have followed your journey from the groups at Writer’s Digest to when you got the call from an agent and now this. How wonderful for you to finally see your work in print. How wonderful that I now can read another of Christi’s partners. Keep writing and keep us on the edge of our seats. I look forward to reading your first, but certainly not your last, novel 🙂

    • Florence,

      Wow we’ve been writing friends for so long! I love it!

      You’re going to LOVE Margo’s book because it’s perfect for teens and parents alike. When my twins are older I plan on making them read it and then starting a big discussion about online safety and the pitfalls that are out there from those who seem nice, but in reality are anything but.

      Happy writing!
