I very much enjoyed Laura Marshall’s debut novel, Friend Request last year – as did many, according to the reviews I read and the stats on my own blog post.
Getting Facebook friend requests from old school frenemies or even those you only vaguely knew many years earlier is a weird thing. My 30th school reunion was held a couple of years ago and when I joined the reunion Facebook page I sudden received friend requests from people I’d not seen (or thought of) in decades.
Weirder still were those from people who were just not nice in school. The bitches and bullies – most of whom left school as young as possible in my day, so weren’t a problem after we turned 15. But at least I’ve never received a friend request from someone who disappeared 25 years earlier, and who’s presumed dead.
