Asha, Emma, and Skye have been best friends for years, but things have been different lately. Skye is only worried about landing an internship with the senator, Emma is focused on screenwriting, and Asha is obsessed with posting things of the social media platform ChitChat.

At Asha's birthday slumber party, Skye tries on Asha's lingerie as a joke, but is upset to find Asha recording her. The worst part is that she broadcasted it live and can't take it down for fifteen minutes. Skye hopes that nobody saw it, but when she starts receiving anonymous texts, she realizes someone is trying to blackmail her. Skye has no choice but to do as the blackmailer says or else they'll post the photo.

The paranoia Skye starts to feel begins to take over her life. It's the only thing she can think about and it's affecting her relationships with her boyfriend Luke and her friends. SCREENSHOT shows the negative impact social media can have and how it can consume you completely. This is a story about rediscovering yourself and who's important to you as well.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of social media, drama, and contemporary. There is a small amount of romance, but it isn't prominent.
