About The Book
The “Rich Kids of Instagram” are not your typical well-to-do brats. These “kids” drive Ferraris, fly to their weekend getaways in private jets, and post self-indulgent photos of themselves online as frequently—and as wantonly—as they blow wads of cash. Not to mention that they’re more involved in sex, drugs, and power plays than most people twice their age.
Drawing from the ten most frequent contributors to the popular blog of the same name—which receives an average of 850,000 unique visitors a month and has been featured on 20/20, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Forbes, The Atlantic, Buzzfeed, Gawker, and others—Rich Kids of Instagram revolves around a core group of spoiled young people, from a Southern Belle poultry-empire heiress to a media mogul’s driven daughter and an old-money rifle heir with a Mayflower legacy; to a nouveau riche outsider who is thrust into the members-only universe of the .1%, with scandalous results.
In a world that is smaller, more connected, and more competitive than ever, where nothing is off limits, some kids are just trying to make a buck—or ten thousand. Prepare to be wowed by this saucy, compulsively readable book about the hilarious display of extravagant wealth and the teenagers who have fallen into it.

"Let's be honest, books are kind of boring. Luckily, this isn't a book; it's a historic moment of unfiltered hilarity and extravagance."
– Babe Walker, author of Psychos and White Girl Problems
“Mo' money, mo' problems, indeed. Maya Sloan shines an honest, hilarious, and wonderfully humanizing light on the lives of the young and wealthy. This book is as sleek and high-powered as a Lamborghini, and as utterly addictive as an all-night rave. I loved every page.”
– Davy Rothbart, author of My Heart Is an Idiot and creator of FOUND Magazine
“A bunch of rich kids I'd love to not like. Only, I couldn't stop reading—there are jewels on every freaking page. Hilarious and scary.”
– Zachary Karabashliev, author of 18% Gray
"Rich Kids of Instagram sucks us into a world where sex and drugs are de rigeur and private jets are commonplace. The ride is biting, whippet-fast and titillating."
