“I had no idea GirlOnline would take off the way it has – I can’t believe I now have 5432 followers, thanks so much! – and the thought of opening up to you all about this is terrifying, but here goes…
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 never really planned on reading this book. Even if i love Zoe, this book never really got my attention…but when i got a free copy in exchange of a review, i decided to give it a chance. i have to say, this book left me empty. The first thing i notice was how poorly written this book is. The style was just, i don’t know, too easy? I have seen magnificent writing in YA. Beautiful words telling incredible story. Girl Online was not one of them. I guess i could’ve forgiven the bad style if the rest was okay, but what we have here is a cliché love story. Clumsy girl falls for mysterious boy and bla bla bla. Some parts made me roll my eyes so hard, i couldn’t believe it. Also, you guys know how i dislike instant love, which is exactly what we have here. i didn’t believe in their love. Yes, it’s kind of cute, but also very cheesy. Nothing original. it was great having a main character with anxiety, since i suffered panic attacks too i could relate to Penny on this part. That doesn’t mean i like her very much, actually she annoyed me a little.
So, yeah…Girl Online didn’t work for me. i can’t recommend it and i won’t be reading the second book in the series. To be honest, i’m actually glad i got it for free.
Girl Online : 2/5
