I just wanted to see you. Before the end. A taut psychological thriller about obsession, fame and betrayal, for fans of Black Mirror.
Cat is in love. Always the sensible one, she can’t believe that she’s actually dating, not to mention dating a star. But the fandom can’t know. They would eat her alive. And first at the buffet would definitely be her best friend, Evie.
Amy uses Heartstream, a social media app that allows others to feel your emotions. She broadcasted every moment of her mother’s degenerative illness, and her grief following her death. It’s the realest, rawest reality TV imaginable.
But on the day of Amy’s mother’s funeral, Amy finds a strange woman in her kitchen. She’s rigged herself and the house with explosives – and she’s been waiting to talk to Amy for a long time. Who is she? A crazed fan? What does she want?
Amy and Cat are about to discover how far true obsession can go.

We have a one sitter book over here. I couldn’t put it down as soon as I started. It was brilliant from start to finish and wow! I fricken loved it.To get to the dark yet serious note about this book, it makes you wonder about the harm of social media and the impact that it has on lives. It almost makes you question, the time and effort that you put into social media but also what you post on social media. It raises that fact that whatever you upload is online and there forever.What can I say about Pollock’s writing style? It’s dark, it’s brilliant and damnnn he is becoming on of my favourite writers of all time.

This title is intense from the first page and will keep you guessing until the very end.
The minute this book arrived in the mail and I saw the words “for fans of Black Mirror”, I opened it and started to read. Then kept reading until I finished it, because I couldn’t put it down!

HEARTSTREAM IS SUPER TWISTED AND DISTURBINGLY ADDICTIVE.It’s a story full of unreliable narrators and convoluted secrets and the lengths people will go to get what they want. Basically let’s talk about obsession and how it makes humans into terrifying things. It’s the type of thriller you can’t put down because you need answers and you need them n o w.
