Summary
Vicky Decker has perfected the art of hiding in plain sight, quietly navigating the halls of her high school undetected except by her best (and only) friend, Jenna. But when Jenna moves away, Vicky's isolation becomes unbearable. So she decides to invent a social life by Photoshopping herself into other people's pictures, posting them on Instagram under the screen name Vicurious. Instantly, she begins to get followers, so she adds herself to more photos from all over the world with all types of people. And as Vicurious's online followers multiply, Vicky realizes she can make a whole life for herself without ever leaving her bedroom. But the more followers she finds online, the clearer it becomes that there are a lot of people out there who feel like her -- #alone and #ignored in real life. To help them, and herself, Vicky must find the courage to face her fear of being "seen," because only then can she stop living vicariously and truly bring the magic of Vicurious to life
Summary
Living life strictly below the radar after her only friend moves away, Vicky, determined to put off her mother's intervention, Photoshops herself into pictures that she posts online before meeting numerous people who feel just as alone and ignored as she does
