Little White Lies by Brianna Baker and F. Bowman Hastie III is a study in how social media can make you a success overnight and how quickly you can fall out of favor with one wrong move. Coretta White is a seventeen-year-old honor student who writes all of her witty thoughts on Tumblr. When her posts go viral and she is offered a TV deal, she quickly discovers how hard it is to keep up her posts and keep her focus on her everyday life. In an effort to retain her momentum, Coretta hires Karl, a forty-one-year-old man, to write her posts for her. Wracked with guilt, Coretta eventually confesses to having a ghostwriter. The repercussions of their actions leave Coretta and Karl in ruin. Will they find a way to rebuild their lives or are they destined to be social pariahs?

When she’s given orders to guard the king’s son, Rachelle forces him to help her find a legendary sword which could save their world from the rising darkness.
