No Filter Review

This is the story of THAT SUMMER … the one when everything changes.

Emerald has grown up in a privileged world – the beloved daughter of a wealthy family, friends with all the right people, social media addict. But Emerald's family has secrets – and when Emerald finds her mum unconscious on the bathroom floor, no one can pretend any more. Now she's being packed off to stay with her grandma in Ireland while her mum recuperates and her dad just works and works and works.

Grandma's big, lonely house is set back from the beach, and there's no phone signal or wifi. It's going to be a long summer ... Until she meets Liam.

When you're falling in love, it's hard to tell someone everything. Even if you've got nothing to hide any more. And when secrets and lies are all you're used to, how do you deal with real love – brave and true – with no filter?

The fresh, funny and poignant debut novel from Orlagh Collins, a bright new voice in YA fiction. Authentic, down to earth and sweepingly romantic all at once, No Filter is perfect for fans of John Green, Rainbow Rowell and Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

    Beautiful writing, and really wonderful to see Instagram as the focus! And I liked the distinction between the dialects and how that it came through in the prose (in spelling etc.) but it got a little...

    Wealthy girl meets working class boy and a clichéd romance ensues. I actually didn't mind it. It was interesting and I enjoyed the Dublin accented dialogue and slang. Entertaining but unfortunately n...

    I adored this book. It brought back vivid memories of every hot, love-filled teenage summer by the sea there has ever been. Beautifully written, with excellent humour. Romantic without being sappy. It...

    Rating: 4.5 StarsSocial media has trained us to "filter" our lives. Picking the parts we want people to see, and carefully projecting the desired image. Emerald had become an expert at filtering her l...
