As the panic attacks worsen, Penny's parents take her on a trip to New York where she meets Noah, a guitar-wielding heartthrob, and Penny soon starts to fall in love. But Noah has a secret too, and this secret could ruin Penny's cover...

    Having established herself as a big sister to the 6 million plus subscribers on her Zoella YouTube channel, Zoe Sugg's Girl Online is a compelling story of a modern girl who readers aged 11 and above will both sympathise and associate with.
