Read + Review — Girl Online by Zoe Sugg

girl-onlinePenny Porter lives her life behind a computer screen, where she blogs about her feelings, her relationships, and high school drama. As if things couldn’t get worse, her panic attacks are more frequent, and Penny’s parents want to spend Christmas in New York City. However, there she meets charming Noah, a smooth talking guitarist whom she can’t help but fall for. But much like Penny, Noah has secrets too that could put her blog at risk, as well as her closest friendships.

I loved how the book was written by a YouTuber, who actually runs her own blog. Within the book, the author provided much advice about dealing with typical problems that I found myself relating too. The characters of the story were also well established and the dialogue was truly unique. However, I thought that the ending didn’t offer enough closure and that the book moved very quickly, leaving out some key details. Otherwise, it was worth the read.

One of the most memorable things about the book was Penny’s and Noah’s relationship. It was described much like any first love and was really relatable in many circumstances.
