ONLINE RUMOURS. REAL LIFE TROUBLE.

Ola Olajide, a high-profile journalist, is marrying the love of her life in one month's time. Young, beautiful, successful – she and her fiancé Michael seem to have it all.

That is, until one morning when they both wake up to the same message:

‘Oh my god, have you seen The List?’

It began as a list of anonymous allegations about abusive men. Now it has been published online. Ola made her name breaking exactly this type of story. She would usually be the first to cover it, calling for the men to be fired. Except today, Michael’s name is on there.

With their future on the line, Ola gives Michael an ultimatum to prove his innocence by their wedding day, but will the truth of what happened change everything for both of them?

What others think

Reviews of The List

Well written and engaging, interesting topic...but disappointing from a feminist viewpoint. As a Londoner, some questions about the use of language: do we call an individual person "fam", now? Would a feminist in a romantic reminiscence say, "the first time I let you smash"? I'm not surprising the TV networks want to pick this up...for both good and depressing reasons (not to give any spoilers).

Really interesting. Something just completely different to anything else I’ve read yet so believable as we all know something like that that’s happened. Loved the narration!

Steph

Great book outlining such real issues in a way that make you think not just twice, but three, four, five times before you say or type something, especially on the Internet!!

Helena

Yomi Adegoke really did that!! This was such a well written story and the narration brought the characters and dilemmas to life. Really in tune with the issues that I see today as a black British woman chronically online. As well as, in the anti sexual violence sphere in which I work.
