A well known girl who has written what now is a well known book. It was super hyped up when this first came out, and even before that. I didn't want to give into the hype straight away so it wasn't until a few weeks back when I actually ordered this book. I was placing an order from Amazon and needed to spend over £10 to get free delivery so I thought why not give into the hype and give it a read. I knew this book was aimed at slightly younger girls than me but I'm all for an easy bedtime read.
The blurb says:
"Penny has a secret.
Under the alias Girl Online, Penny blogs her hidden feelings about friendship, boys, high school drama, her crazy family, and the panic attacks that have begun to take over her life. When things go from bad to worse, her family whisks her away to New York, where she meets Noah, a gorgeous, guitar-strumming American. Suddenly Penny is falling in love - and capturing every moment of it on her blog.
But Noah has a secret, too, one that threatens to ruin Penny's cover - and her closest friendship - forever."
The story line basically incorporates blogging, friendships and love. I think the story line is great and highlights all these areas well in a positive and negative light. You can tell when reading that this book is aimed at the slightly younger girls but it still made me want to read on. Even though the messages throughout the book aren't really aimed towards me personally, I can see how they are relevant to others.
This book was quite long if I'm honest but the short chapters made it easier to read. Once you got into the book, towards the middle, I was reading a few chapters at a time which meant that the lengthy book wasn't one to go on for months. Like I mentioned this was a super easy read for bedtime when you don't want anything too difficult or scary. Also there is going to be a Girl Online 2 which is set to come out this November.
I'm glad I gave this book a read but it was slightly too easy to read and the messages that came across just weren't all that relevant to me personally, as I said. But I did enjoy reading it and probably will still give into the hype after a while and get the second book. You can buy this book here from Amazon for only £6 at the moment. I'd love to hear if you've read this book and your thoughts on it? :-)
