Knox

YA/crime

Knox follows Maggie Kim, a 17-year-old who goes viral with a scandalous “real life” social media diary on an Instagram-type platform under the fake name Cleone Knox. In order to keep up the ruse, Maggie must con the world into thinking she’s a 24-year-old, Manhattan fashionista instead of a high-school student from Queens. But as Cleone becomes more and more of an icon, Maggie realizes that being Cleone comes with scandalous consequences… consequences that if realized could mean the end of Maggie Kim, and the relentless continued existence of the cut-throat Cleone Knox. Based on the novel The Diary of a Young Lady of Fashion by Magdalen King Hall.
