    I struggled with this book a little bit Overall, I really wanted to like it I loved the concept young girl discovers VEIL, an anonymous new art sharing app she really connects with, works up the courage to share her art online, etc However, I found so many things off about this book First of all, I found the central conflict around VEIL to highly unbelievable The whole point of the book is I guess freedom of speech And there are all these big moral questions around whether a hateful post should be taken down or the user revealed, and even though this main character lives in a tiny town the app is location based this is apparently huge enough news that the app creator is responding to it Okay First of all, speaking as a community manager myself, if you re making an app that allows children to participate there has to be moderation There WOULD BE moderation This whole plot falls apart for me, because either this hateful post and posts like this would just be taken down through a very basic moderation system, OR THE APP WOULD BE OVERRUN WITH GARBAGE IN MINUTES Have you heard of the TTP In the community management world, that stands for time to penis That s the amount of time it takes for there to be images of penises in an unmoderated place on the internet It s often very, very short VEIL wouldn t stand a chan...

    Read this review and others on my blog I ve been a loyal listener of Sarah Enni s First Draft podcast since 2014, so I was psyched to pick up a copy of her debut novel Tell Me Everything follows Ivy, a sopho photography nerd who s been struggling with growing distance between her and her BFF Harold To take her mind off her absent, over scheduled friend, Ivy becomes engrossed with the new app VEIL, which allows users to view Instagram style anonymous pictures local to a five mile radius The book follows Ivy as she attempts to uncover the secrets of the students at her school posting on VEIL.It s a cute, short book that I read in less than twenty four hours I really enjoyed the local art scene focus, and I feel that there s a missed opportunity here for the book to include some photographs and illustrations to color the narrative, like in a Ransom Riggs book Yet the book isn t without its flaws it felt plotless for a good portion of the book, like we were being treated to individual scenes that made up some so...

    I wanted to love this book I really really wanted to However, I definitely think its target audience is in the 7th 8th grade range vs high school, despite the subject matter, and I just couldn t fully buy into Ivy and her character Some of the social media stuff was hard hitting and would be great for kids to read, but some of the other events were just cringeworthy I m eager to hand it to my 13 yo daughte...

    This was a fun, quick read While I loved the portrayal of the town and the app VEIL, the themes in this book felt a little on the nose and overly simplistic Maybe this is just a result of me reading older YA and having unfair expectations for a book that s decidedly younger Tell Me Everything is definitely out of my wheelhou...

    A timely and thought provoking book about social media, anonymity, art, and being yourself for yourself Ivy s voice here is fantastic and the perfect blend of funny, snarky, confused, and insecure This book is absolutely for teens, with dialog that s real and situations that resonate among teens learning how to navigate long time and newly budding friendships At the heart of the story is the VEIL app, which Ivy turns to to better cope with a summer away from her brilliant best friend VEIL allows users to share art anonymously and it s seen by only those who are local to them for 24 hours Ivy takes what should be something straightforward art for art s sake and uses it to try to connect with people who, by using the app, preferred to be anonymous This, in the end, bites her when she realizes she makes some terrible assumptions about people and puts others in situations where they re not comfortable Her heart is there, even if her thinking brain isn t.There s a particularly interesting thread through the story about Vivian Maier, who is an artist that I adore It s interesting because this is a niggling point only som...

    Tell Me Everything follows sopho Ivy who is a shy artist except for when she decides to get into everyone s business, doing good deeds for people whose identities she figured out or thinks she has from posts to an anonymous art sharing app similar to Yik Yak or After School This culminates in her deciding her best friend is gay and throwing a coming out party for him because she thinks he hasn t felt supported enough by her to tell her...

    This whole book feels like one giant meh, and a whole lot of wasted potential I will say, though, that the chapter number pages is that what they re called The first page of each chapter I guess were absolutely gorgeous, with pretty paint patters on them, so there s that to love There were definitely some interesting and important conversations about social media and internet privacy A significant part of the novel concerns the decision of whether or not the identity of someone who makes a hateful post should be allowed to be revealed, something which Ivy is very passionate about, and even makes comments about freedom of speech and being allowed to post whatever you want even if it can be considered hate speech For the most part, I definitely enjoyed this commentary.I also really loved the emphasis on art that this book had It was so clear from the start and throughout how much Ivy loved and cared about art Her passion really shone through the writing, and I could really imagine some of her pieces of art.The whole premise was definitely unique and an interesting concept to tackle, but it ultimately wasn t my favorite thing to read, and did feel ...

    Have you ever felt, even before you ve read something, like it was written just for you That is how this book felt to me Not only did I feel this way when I heard about this book, and when I waited for it, and when I ordered it, but I felt that way when I read it This book felt like it was written just for my teen self I felt every feeling Ivy feels I felt every feeling Harold feels If you were to merge the two of them into one person, that person would be me when I was in high school And this book felt both so real and so timely to what it is like to live now, with social media, but it also felt like how it feels to be someone who is scared to share who they are with the world Reading it felt like how it feels to wait for someone to look at a piece of art you ve made and pass judgment on it It felt like that feeling you have when you close your eyes and you don t know what they are going to think about that piece of art and you re a pile of nerves It felt like all of the good intentions we have to do the right thing and how, quite often, we fall short But most of all it felt like Ivy understood what it feels like to be an artist and Harold understood what it feels like to feel like you have so many expectations to live up to that you don t know if you can ever reach them I loved this book so much It gave me vibes of Tanuja Desai Hidier s Born Confused and how it felt to read that for the first time when I was a teenager This...

    Not terrible but not great.Ivy is an artist who loves a social media site called VEIL It allows people to post their art anonymously and while she doesn t post anything herself, she figures out who some of the posters are and plans to surprise them with things she thinks they need When an anonymous person starts posting homophobic rhetoric, parents become involved and pressure the creator to reveal who the poster is.That would be enough for most books but the main part of the story is how Ivy figures out what each poster is missing in their lives and tries to fix it for them She makes a lot of mistakes which turn her into a social pariah but it all gets neatly wrapped ...

    I love Sarah Enni s podcast and I love this book I work at a high school library and I see the effects of social media every day So many students come to me because of things posted about them online, how they feel people are judging them because of it, etc Having this book in high school libraries is so important Beyond that, this was just a...
