Penny has a secret.
Under the alias GirlOnline, she blogs about school dramas, boys, her mad, whirlwind family – and the panic attacks she’s suffered from lately. When things go from bad to worse, her family whisks her away to New York, where she meets the gorgeous, guitar-strumming Noah. 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.
I’d seen a little bit about this book on Instagram but I heard a lot about it after it become known that it’s ghost written. I didn’t see a lot of good reviews for this book but I still thought I would give it a chance.
Right away, I noticed how poorly written Girl Online was. I can’t really pinpoint what it was but the whole book was just off for me. It just didn’t work for me. I think this would be a great book for young girls who are just getting into the Young Adult genre that don’t want a massive fantasy book to tackle. It’s fairly short and overall, it was nice but after the first 20 pages, I spent days doing everything I could to avoid reading this book.
For me personally, I didn’t like this book. But I can completely understand why some people do. I’m a very critical reader so this book just wasn’t for me.
