    The debut novel from award-winning YouTube phenomenon Zoella (or Zoe Sugg), Girl Online is a semi-autobiographical tale of romance that tackles many of the issues that modern teens have to deal with today - such as cyber bullying, self-esteem and anxiety.

    Penny has a secret. She's the girl behind GirlOnline, an online teen lifestyle blog where she anonymously 'pens' the goings on of her life: school dramas, boys, her mad family - and the panic attacks that she has been suffering from lately. 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.
