Consider this: in a matter of seconds, and at the touch of a button your livelihood and reputation can be destroyed. This is a chilling reality for millions of Americans who are victimized by on-line sexual harassment. Forty-seven percent of Americans, or one in twenty-five of us are affected by this crime, which borders on becoming an epidemic. For teenagers, when it comes to cyber-bullying the numbers jumps to one in ten.
Author Rochelle. B. Wellington’s new novel, SOMEBODY’S DAUGHTER (LakeUnion) highlights a growing problem for teenager’s oversharing and misunderstanding the impact of social media.
Emma and Bobby Ross enjoy a charmed life in their penthouse apartment on Ocean Drive on the shores of Miami Beach. Emma, Bobby and twin daughters, Lily and Zoe are a model family and established members of a tight-knit community.
Then, on the night of the twins’ fifteenth birthday party, they learn of Zoe’s heartbreaking mistake—a private and humiliating sexual video that goes viral and plunges her and the Ross family into the center of an appalling public scandal.
As the family’s core is shattered by disgrace, judgment, and retribution, the fallout takes its toll. But for Emma, the shame runs deeper. Her daughter’s reckless behavior has stirred memories of her own secrets that could break a marriage and family forever.
This novel should make everyone wake up to the fact that social media can truly cause irreparable damage to a person. While it’s also good at times, as we’ve seen in the Parkland High-School movement, there is a darker side. From the opening of SOMEBODY’S DAUGHTER, I was hooked on the story. Rochelle Weinstein holds nothing back when sharing the Ross family’s experience; an experience that any family could encounter. I found the story, characters and premise all compelling and timely.
