Part of the back story in Forbes:

The next teens you see engrossed in their phones might not be texting or Snapchatting, but reading a suspense thriller. That’s thanks to Hooked, an app aimed at 13- to 24-year-olds that serves up pulse-pounding stories in the form of SMS conversations. Since launching in 2015, Hooked has ­been downloaded nearly 2 million times and recently became the top-grossing book app for iOS. This milestone comes on the heels of new research showing that Millennials lead other generations in reading and still generally prefer print books to e-books. These data depict a publishing industry in transition—one that’s modernizing in response to evolving reading habits but in no danger of succumbing to new digital overlords.

Contrary to popular belief, Millennials read more than older generations do—and more than the last generation did at the same age.

Hope springs eternal…and she reads books…
