**Dubray Staff Recommended Read** The face of a lifestyle brand with an almost cult-like following, Samantha Miller has spent her career fighting for the right of every woman to tell their truth. But her perfectly curated life begins to unravel when a childhood friend suggests that Samantha’s truth may not be the whole story. Deftly exploring wellness culture, social media influencers, and the murkier side of the #MeToo movement, this novel is as compulsive as a thriller and might be O’Neill’s best yet!

'IDOL is fresh, glamorous, and surprising, taking an issue we all care about and with a deft twist, recalibrating our position. It dazzles us before revealing the darkness at its heart. Louise O'Neill is not afraid to take on a taboo but somehow always makes it utterly compelling. This is such an exciting book.' Marian Keyes

'Follow your heart and speak your truth.'

For Samantha Miller's young fans - her 'girls' - she's everything they want to be. She's an oracle, telling them how to live their lives, how to be happy, how to findand honour their 'truth'.

And her career is booming: she's just hit one million followers, her new book Chaste has gone straight to the top of the bestseller lists and she's appearing at sell-out events.

She's never told a soul but now she's telling the world. The essay goes viral.

But then - years since they last spoke - Lisa gets in touch to say that she doesn't remember it that way at all. Her memory of that night is far darker. It's Sam's word against Lisa's - so who gets to tell the story? Whose 'truth' is really
