On Instagram, it looks like everyone is living their best life, from the seductive thirst traps to the heart-warming baby snaps. But is anyone really as #lucky as their feed suggests? This is the question Dawn O'Porter tackles in her new novel - the latest title to take readers behind the Instagram filter, in what is turning out to be one of 2019's biggest literary trends.

So Lucky tells the stories of three very different women. There's Lauren, an influencer whom we encounter primarily through her Instagram posts. O'Porter details her photos and the comments from followers, with a fairly even split between the gushing fans ("you are such an inspiration to me") and the trolls (oh my f***ing god, when will you actually shut the f*** up you vain vacuous asshole"). We see Lauren promoting green smoothies, taking a bubble bath and opening up about her #anxiety, as well as teasing her upcoming wedding to millionaire businessman Gavin.
