Can you filter your way to #happiness?
Cassie Holliday is at the top of her game. A glamorous wife and mother with 1.3 million Instagram followers, she posts images of her gorgeous husband and cute (gender-neutral) twins online every day. To her adoring fanbase, Cassie's life is a string of perfect experiences in VSCO filter.
But in real life, you can't airbrush the truth. Cassie's marriage is at breaking point, her finances are precarious, and she is terrified of every Insta-star's worst nightmare: becoming irrelevant.
Then Cassie meets Beth, an anxious new mum who never ventures online. Finally, Cassie feels like she can be herself. They soon become each other's lifeline, until a video of Beth goes viral, and their offline friendship tips into online rivalry...
Everything's Perfect is a smart and thought-provoking debut about motherhood, friendship and the quest for perfection in an Instagram age.
