This is Ellery Lloyd’s debut novel and it was a brilliant read. ‘People Like Her’ is based around Emmy, who is married to Dan, and her two children, Coco and Bear.
Emmy used to be a high flyer in the world of magazines but, since pregnancy has taken on a presence on Instagram as ‘mamabear’ trying to show the world that it is fine to be a mama who makes mistakes. She has over one million followers and is the breadwinner of the family as Dan is a writer who seems to have stalled.
There are three narrators, Emmy, Dan and the person who is plotting Emmy’s downfall for ruining her life. This is a cleverly constructed novel with many twists and turns along the way. The author is not afraid to show the life of an ‘influencer’ as it is and all the horrors along the way for her family.
Many thanks to NetGalley, Pan Macmillian and Ellery Lloyd for my ARC in return for my honest review.
Brilliant read. Highly recommended.
