Girl Online book review

So it has taken me a while, but i have finally finished Girl Online! Don't be mislead by the fact it took me so long, only due to the fact my life has been so hectic with assignment deadlines that i haven't had a chance to read at lot lately. So i thought i would put together a kind of review for you all, if you haven't read it and would like to, or you have and want to hear someone else's opinion.

So here we go...

I definitely feel the book is suited for teenagers, it has that young adult vibe to it, and something i would of definitely been able to relate to back in the day! Zoe touches on anxiety really well within the book, as you will all know, she suffers hugely wrong anxiety and she puts it onto paper so well. i also suffer from anxiety, and i could relate to her every word. So she definitely got brownie points for that. The book kind of did something funny to me, something that has never really happened while i have read a book before, i actually felt exactly how the character was feeling. When she felt worried, scared, upset and anxious, i could feel my stomach feeling all those emotions too. I think it must be because i can relate to dealing with some not very nice people back in my school days and it must have brought the emotions back to me of how i felt, i don't want too go into too much detail, just incase there is someone who hasn't read it yet.

I have been speaking to one of my best friends, Laura (who's blog you can find, here) about the ending of the book. She seems to have the same thought pattern as me, the whole book was a really good read (even despite it being aimed at a younger age group than ourselves) however, the end kind of let it down. The end was very quick, blunt and too the point. Kind of like Zoe ran out of words and had to squeeze the ending into such a small space.

Despite the ending, i would still recommend the book. Especially if you suffer from anxiety, or you are in your teenage years, as i think it would definitely be something every teenager would be able to relate too. Congratulations Zoe, this is such a massive achievement, you have come so far and all your hard work has paid off.

Apologies for the lack of photography within this review, i downloaded the book onto my kindle and thats not very pretty to photograph when its all black and white!
