YA Crossover. What's it like to be a teen influencer? Sixteen-year-old Amanda Dizon is an ordinary girl in an ordinary town in Iowa. But when she falls into an abandoned well in her backyard during presidential primary campaign season, the national media post the story; the candidates visit her in the hospital, and she becomes a star on the new social media platform, PingPong. Amanda911 is a story for our time, about an occupation that didn't exist a few years ago, but which millions now aspire to. It's a funny, fast-paced journey through the contemporary digital landscape that is the influencer phenomenon.
