«Highly recommended for readers of dystopian fiction, lovers of Philip K. Dick's thought-police science fiction, and anyone who wants to see how far "If you see something, say something" can be led astray»

Library Journal, starred review

«Poster Girl is a captivating story full of twists and turns-and no easy answers. Veronica Roth's latest outing will draw you into its broken world, and make you think more deeply of our own. I couldn't put it down»

Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author of Girl, Forgotten

«Roth weaves a tale of redemption and regret that kept me riveted and guessing until the last page»

Hugh Howey, New York Times bestselling author of Wool and Across the Sand

«Veronica Roth's Poster Girl is a carbonated noir, a thrilling dystopian page turner, and a novel that pushes at the ideas of justice and compliance. Poster Girl is a rare book that is deeply entertaining while making readers consider deep moral issues»

Megan Giddings, author of Lakewood and The Women Could Fly

«Someone is always watching, private secrets breed public power, and polite behavior and careful thoughts will not be enough to save everyone from their complicity. This is a smart, propulsive thriller set in a cleverly constructed world, full of tough questions I won't soon forget»

Matt Bell, author of Appleseed

«This is a story of deep complexity, full of love and loss and hard-won hope»

Marissa Levien, author of The World Gives Way

«It's an unflinching look at the dangers of spyware and propaganda through a dystopian lens.»

Stylist

«An intelligent, raw, emotional dystopian thriller that asks deep questions about human nature, society, and freedom. With searing prose, deft world building, and a layered, propulsive plot that will keep you turning the pages, the supremely talented Veronica Roth is at the top of her game in Poster Girl. Don't miss this!»

Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six

«Poster Girl cements Veronica Roth's status as a superstar. It's not just her prose, lyrical and precise. Not just her characters, complex and enchanting. It's that she manages to keep her feet planted in the thunderous present while setting her narrative gaze on a looming Orwellian future. Not a word of this fine novel is dogmatic or reductive as Sonja Kantor, onetime true believer, peels back the pristine façade of her life's ideology to reveal the churning human chaos beneath. Her story is timeless in all the best ways, as contoured and mysterious as the poster girl herself»

Gregg Hurwitz, #1 International bestselling author of the Orphan X series

«Roth isn't interested in easy victories or happily-ever-afters. Instead, Sonya grapples with the inevitable failure of even the most optimistic governments, the risk that exciting and helpful new technologies can be used for evil, and the responsibility she still bears for who she was and what she did during the Delegation's heyday. The novel manages to be an elegant social commentary without resorting to preachiness, and even the most cynical readers will be as surprised as Sonya when they reach Roth's big reveals about the depths of the Delegation's depravity. A wonderfully complex and nuanced book»

Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

«Remember the Divergent series? My teenage self definitely does. If you do too, then get excited, because the author is back with a brand new (and much more grown up) speculative fiction mystery about a dystopian world under constant surveillance.»

Cosmopolitan

«Exciting and thought provoking»

Peterborough Telegraph

«A classy, pleasingly self-contained mystery that scores all the right points»

SFX Magazine

«Poster Girl does not just feature the unravelling of old ideas but the building of new ones. Every detail of this story proves that there are still new approaches to be found in dystopian science fiction. While fans of this genre and Roth's previous work will be delighted by this, there is thematic depth here for those who may never have read anything like it before»
