Emma and Bobby Ross have the perfect loving family with twin daughters, Lily and Zoe. They all live in a ritzy hotel in Miami that is owned by their family. This idyllic life is shattered after Zoe attends a party with her high school friends. A week later while celebrating the twins fifteenth birthday Emma learns of a shocking video that has gone viral of Zoe. The aftermath stresses the entire Ross family with embarrassing scandalous attention and unknown ramifications.
Each family member has a different reaction to the scandal. Bobby seeks revenge against the person who posted the video. He is angry and unable to provide emotional support to his family in the midst of the investigation. Emma is concerned for her daughters’ emotional state and how she will cope at school. This event also becomes the catalyst to address problems that she has kept buried for years. This instability wreaks havoc on the family dynamics and they need to make major changes to move forward.
Somebody’s Daughter highlights an important topic which explores the growing use of technology by teens. The use of computers, phones, and social media can be greatly beneficial but when used improperly there is the potential for abuse. This was the first book that I read by Rochelle B. Weinstein and I look forward to more novels by this author.
