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 terrifying, but here it goes..
Penny has a secret.
Under the alias GirlOnline, she blogs about school dramas, boys, her mad, whirlwind family - and the panic's attack she 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.
First of all, I am a big fan of Zoella, since last two/three years ago. I have been subscribe and watch her videos. I must say, I love british accents! I envy the fact that my all three cousins, who has been live in UK, ever since they were a baby (they were born there), they all have those cute british accents! They are all so cute, I must say! and even my mom and dad, got to study and live there too. It is one of my dream to live there.
Oops. I guess I have been to distracted by the cute accents and UK, I must get back to my thoughts over the book that I have read!
So, here it goes, firstly, the cover were cute, and shiny with the beautiful lights. The story of a girl name, Penny Potter, who have been through a lot in her life, the struggle over panic attack that she have to cope up throughout her life because of the accident trauma, having to face the friendship broken - eventually because your best friend, has found other great thing to do in her life, that she thought, her best friend were not as cool as she is (ergh, I hate it!) and one way to pull of those things from her mind is by blog about it and she goes by the name - Girl Online! The fact that when she started blogging, she straight away, got more than 100 comments, when I received none. Er...I..envy..that..(?)
I think, in my opinion, it lack of...quite lot of things. No! It is not a bad written but it wasn't a good one either. But I do understand, this is her first writing, it just the fact that, it doesn't affect me so much that I don't even feel sad, when there's some unhappy story in it. It just lack of emotion in that sense.
Anyhow, the story line is quite adorable, the fantasy dream that I bet, everyone has been dreaming of at least once, in their life. Who doesn't want to met a pretty gorgeous guy in somewhere over part of the country and turns out to be a superstar, turns out to be falling in love with you in less than 6 hours, since the first time they met. Its illogically strange but that is what fiction is all about. It is story that created by you, out of your own imagination.
I nor love or hate the book. It just little bit of lack of emotion. Nevertheless, I still enjoy reading it, very cute and simple story, not a dragging story, I guess I need to read the sequel, maybe there's a lot more in there!
