Jersey Festival of Words – Amara Sage

Join Bristolian author Amara Sage as she introduces her debut YA novel, Influential, a whip-smart deep dive into what it would really be like to be internet famous at 17. Almond Brown has no friends in real life … but 3.5 million followers online. Shooting straight to the heart of the modern-day teenage experience, both online and offline, Amara will discuss themes of social media, cancel culture, online trolling, body image and more.

Amara Sage graduated from the Bath Spa MA for Writing for Young People with a distinction. She writes contemporary, own-voice YA fiction that explores issues of body image, mental health, racial identity, and the impact that social media has on all of the above.

 ‘A thoughtful first novel for 14+, exploring the nuances of cancel culture and the remorseless nature of internet scrutiny.’ The Guardian
