Friends Like These

A gripping thriller about fake friendships and the truth that lies behind the Facebook page, for fans of The Girlfriend and Friend Request.

We all know someone like Becca.

She has the job everyone wants, a designer wardrobe, a hot-shot lawyer boyfriend, holidays to exotic locations. And she flaunts her perfect life all over social media.

It drove her colleague Lizzie mad, but she couldn’t stop looking. They were never really friends – and yet Lizzie knew everything about her.

Or did she?

When chance, and a terrible mistake, pulls Lizzie back into Becca’s orbit years after they lost touch, she’ll realise that you can’t always believe what you see online… and that finding out the truth might be the worst thing you can do.

There’s no such thing as a perfect life. Only a perfect lie.

Reviews

With FRIENDS LIKE THESE, Sarah Alderson has created a fascinating female monster. This cleverly plotted, well written book kept me engaged to the last page.
Rachel Abbott, author of <i>Come A Little Closer</i>
The exploration of social media envy/fakery was incredibly dark but also caused me several winces of recognition. Compelling, timely, yet very original all at once.
Elodie Harper, author of <i>The Death Knock</i>
Captivating writing with just the right amount of twists and turns to keep you on your toes... Absolutely loved it!
SJI Holliday, author of <i>The Lingering</i>
Absolutely loved this... It's dark and satirical and uncomfortable reading for anyone on Instagram.
Claire McGowan, author of the Paula Maguire series
This is an exhilarating ride where nothing is what it seems... Good luck getting anything else done until you've turned the final page.
Heat
A brilliant psychological read.
Woman
Fast-moving and beautifully told, it is hard to put down.
