About the Book

Lord of the Fly Fest by Goldy Moldavsky

Genre: Young Adult Horror
Publishing date: August 30th, 2022

Rep: Non-binary and LGBTQIA+ characters

One of Us Is Lying meets Lord of the Flies meets Fyre Fest in this wickedly addictive and funny YA thriller.

Rafi Francisco needs something really special to put her true crime podcast on the map. She sets her sights on River Stone, the hearthrob musician who rose to stardom after the mysterious disappearance of his girlfriend. Rafi lands herself a ticket to the exclusive Fly Fest, where River will be the headliner.

But when Rafi arrives on the Caribbean island location of Fly Fest with hundreds of other influencers and (very minor) celebrities, they quickly discover that the dream trip is more of a nightmare. And it’s not just confronting beauty gurus-gone-wild and spotty WiFi. Soon, Rafi goes from fighting for an interview to fighting for her life. And, as she gets closer to River, she discovers that he might be hiding even darker secrets than she suspected . . .

“Their makeup did not make them beautiful anymore. Rafi knew now that it made them savages.”

Wow. Now this was a crazy ride for a YA Thriller. Rafi finds herself stranded on an island with a slew of social media influencers. With a microphone and podcast gear in hand she quickly realizes she wasn’t the only one to have been lured to the island under false pretenses. At first she panics and tries to find any way of getting the outside world to learn about what is really happening on the Caribbean island but then decides to take a step back and work on getting an interview of a lifetime with no one other than famous musician River Stone.

This was a deep dive into the ways social media can influence people and how attached society gets to seeing those “likes” and “follows”. I thought the concept for this YA thriller was relevant and it will definitely make you think. If you’re looking for a unique YA Thriller than I recommend this one!
