Things haven't been easy for Jack recently - life as a teenager has its ups and downs. But when he meets a new group of friends, who are every bit as geek as they are chic, his luck seems to be changing. Each of the group is talented and when they pool together to create Generation Next, an incredible new kind of social media platform, it's clear that they're on to something special.

What if your Instagram account grew by hundreds of thousands of followers overnight, and big companies were fighting each other to offer you photoshoots? When GenNext suddenly goes viral, Jack and his friends are thrust into a crazy world of fame which is as terrifying as it is awesome.

Because someone out there is determined to trip Jack up at every step. If he doesn't stop them, soon everyone he cares about - his friends, his family, and the girl he's falling for - will be in danger...

Praise For Generation Next

B&N Teen Blog "Best New Book of July"

"Love, family, cyberbullying, and illness . . . amazing . . . may remind readers of novels by John Green."—Orlando Sentinel

"Although I am a fan of [Oli White's] videos, I had doubts about whether his book would be popular simply because of his fame. I no longer doubt his literary talent. He was able to incorporate his comedic persona into the plot, making it light and fun, and his YouTube personality was evident in his writing style. Generation Next is an easy but exciting read. It is mature, funny and romantic all at once."—Santa Fe, New Mexican
