Girl Online by Zoe Sugg

Girl Online: The First Novel by Zoella - Zoe Sugg



Penny has a secret. 

Under the alias Girl Online, Penny blogs her hidden feelings about friendship, boys, 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.





 his is the type of book if you are in the mood for an easy read. A book that is so cheesy and predictable you want to facepalm and eye roll numerous times.

I'm not completely saying this book is terrible, at the time I wasn't looking for a book that was well written or in depth. 

So that is a warning if you are thinking about reading this book.


Before I continue I should bring up the controversial "ghost reader". 

I believe the main reason why everyone was upset about this was not because she got a ghost reader to write her book, many "famous" people have done that. It was more of the fact that she didn't mention it either in one of her YouTube videos or in her book. 

I'm not personally insulted because I frankly don't care. Of course she had help writing her book. In all honesty I don't think her ghost writer is a good writer anyway. She obviously doesn't know how to write in the person of a teenager girl or boy, a parent and even a grandmother. She wasn't very good at making the characters sound different no matter what age r gender they were. It was basically monotone.


Now the reason why I'm giving this two stars and not the one it truly deserves, is because of the mood I was in. 

All I felt like reading was a cheesy love story, something I didn't need to use my brain. Girl Online accomplished that for me.

What scares me is I already bought book two and I plan to read it.


I have nothing else to say about this, actually I do but there isn't any point. I could go on for days complaining about all the mistakes this book had, from the way Noah talks, how Penny's parents behave, her stereo-typical guy best friend, the mean girls at her school.....Okay I'm stopping myself right there before I get myself into a real rant.
