Stuart James: Selfie

This review is written with thanks to the author for my copy of Selfie.


A girl’s selfie captures something sinister.
A weekend away which ends in tragedy.
A hotel that hides a terrifying secret.

Lucy Benson loves to play a game called selfie. All her friends play it. They send the best pictures to each other. While Lucy is sat in the back of her father’s Jeep, she holds the mobile phone to her face, pressing the click button.
As her father drives in the middle lane of the motorway, she captures the drivers of other cars. Only this time, she captures something terrifying.
Now, they’re running for their lives.


This is the first time I have read anything by Stuart James and I am already crying out for more! The concept of Selfie is really original but it is totally credible in this age of technology and I love the way James takes this idea and really pushes it to see how far it will go. There was a chill running down my spine the whole way through. I did not want it to end and I did not want to put it down! 

The central characters are father and daughter, Matt and Lucy. I loved their relationship with each other and it is this that made me hope that they got out of the situation in which they found themselves. At times, I couldn’t see how it would happen and I felt really tense as each move seemed to get them into an even tighter spot. 

Obviously I do not want to give the ending away but it is definitely one that will stick with me for a long time!

Selfie is available from Amazon.
