Girl Online: Going Solo by Zoe Sugg | Book Review

Girl Online: Going Solo by Zoe Sugg

Reading Group: High School+

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Given Summary: Penny’s life is back to normal.

As Penny starts the school year she’s ready to face the world—alone. Noah has gone off the radar after ending his world tour early, and no one, including Penny, knows where he is. So when she accepts Megan’s invitation to visit her performing arts school, it seems like an opportunity to make some new friends.

Helping everyone else seems to be the right remedy—Elliot needs her friendship more than ever, and she meets Posey, who she can really help with her stage fright. But is charming Scottish boy Callum the right kind of distraction? And can Penny truly move on when Noah’s shadow seems to haunt her around every corner?

Cover: All of the Girl Online books have similar covers, so it is very clear that they are in a series.  On the cover of this novel, there is a masquerade mask, sparklers that make a heart, a camera, and tickets to a "West Side Story" play.  There also seems to be a picture of some type of plant, which may represent the speech about the tree Leah Brown gives Posey.  All of the images on the cover have meaning within the book, and it's always been fun when you get the book to see how they all relate to the storyline.      

My Review: For anyone who has been here for a while knows that I hold a special place in my heart for the Girl Online series because it was one of the first book reviews I ever did, so it's a little sad for me to see the series come to an end.  I did really like this book, though.  I was so sad that Penny and Noah weren't together at the beginning because it was unclear to me how they ended things in On Tour and I got nervous when Callum came into the picture.  However, I was so glad when Noah came back, and there wasn't some big decision Penny had to make.  She took Noah back pretty quickly which I was glad for because obviously, they belong together.  I probably would have been more upset then Penny was if I found out my ex-boyfriend was living in my town and not an ocean away, even if he did have a good reason.  I think this book included a lot of learning for Penny.  She discovered that sometimes friendships fall apart, but other relationships come back stronger than ever.  She also learned that although she loves photography and is really good at it, she also realized that she liked to help people.  The fact that Penny has anxiety has always been such a big part of this series because it's something Zoe Sugg knows a lot about and, although it's beginning to become a common topic in books, it's still not something that is fully understood.  Plus, anxiety is different for everyone and Penny is a great character for someone who suffers from anxiety because she doesn't let it stop her from doing what she loves, but she doesn't ignore it either.  This series was so fun to read, and I'm excited to see what Zoe comes out with next.
