ALA Booklist
Sophomores Ivy and Harold are longtime besties. While Harold's at Stanford's "smart camp" for the summer, Ivy becomes addicted to VEIL, a new, artist-centric, anonymous social-media app ough she never posts her own art, for fear of rejection. When school starts, a vile anti-gay post changes the tone of the platform and affects everyone at school. By scrutinizing VEIL posts, Ivy figures out some users' identities and, in an effort to lighten the atmosphere and support their art, she gives them gifts based on their posts. When Ivy assumes Harold's on VEIL and determines he's keeping a secret, she throws him a party that turns out to be unwelcome, despite her good intentions, and jeopardizes their friendship. This engaging debut novel tackles the issues of friendship and support, as well as significant matters, such as the collision of anonymity and freedom of expression; respect for individual privacy; and the blurred lines between First Amendment rights and hate speech, particularly on social media. Perfect for readers concerned about accountability.

Kirkus Reviews
A teen explores the trappings of anonymity through social media.In her fiction debut, Enni crafts an intriguing tale of identity formation in which a social media app plays nearly as central a role as the characters themselves. Loner goth Ivy, a straight white girl, finds herself at a loss when her overachieving, certifiable-genius best friend, brown-skinned Harold, a fellow sophomore, heads to a Stanford academic camp, leaving her to her own devices for the summer. Luckily, Ivy discovers VEIL, an art-sharing app where users can anonymously share their creations in a feed that is erased every Sunday at midnight. Primarily drawn to the ephemeral art posted on the site, Ivy soon finds herself captivated by how intimately people will share their lives in an anonymous forum. Ivy, a burgeoning photographer, not only uses the VEIL postings to create her own art, but goes on a mission to discover the identities of those cryptically sharing painful experiences and then help them. Ivy's altruistic quest to be an ally has a wrench thrown into it when homophobic hate speech is posted on VEIL, upsetting the apple cart of anonymous free artistic expression and forcing all in Ivy's world, including Enni's well-meaning protagonist, to re-examine their assumptions about strangers as well as intimates with powerful, sometimes hilarious, results.Probing what's on the other side of personal growth and risk-taking, this timely, engaging novel offers its own rewards.

Social media meets Amelie in this perfect romantic comedy from First Draft podcast creator and YA lit rising star Sarah Enni.

Your secret's safe...until it's not.

Ivy's always preferred to lay low, unlike her best friend Harold, who has taken up a hundred activities as sophomore year begins. But Ivy has her own distraction: the new anonymous art-sharing app, VEIL.

Being on the sidelines has made Ivy a skilled observer, and soon she discovers that some of the anonymous posters are actually her classmates. While she's still too scared to put her own creations on the app, Ivy realizes that she can contribute in an even better way -- by making gifts for the artists she's discovered. The acts of kindness give her such a rush that, when Ivy suspects Harold is keeping a secret, she decides to go all in. Forget gifts -- Harold needs a major party.

But when her good intentions thrust her into the spotlight, Ivy's carefully curated world is thrown into chaos. Now she has to find the courage to stand out... or risk losing everything and everyone she loves most.
