But that's just what Lucy's done - and one of her classmates has videoed the whole thing and put it online! Lucy's so stressed, her stammer's become worse than ever. So when a friend encourages her to create her own videos, she thinks it's a terrible idea - surely she's embarrassed herself enough for one lifetime! But when Lucy finally gives vlogging a try, she's amazed to find that people actually want to watch . . . Includes tips for making your own vlogs!

This book is a must for every you tube, vlog loving girl out there! Sydney really enjoyed this book and is now even more determined than ever to have her own you tube channel!
She also enjoyed the story that came through the Vlogs and the way they were written through the story. The top ten tips for making your own you tube channel are also a big hit!!!

My daughter really loved this book. It had a lot of adventure and humour. She particularly liked the way the story changed from the main character telling the story to showing you tube videos/scripts. As she loves animals she enjoyed the parts where the characters helped out at an animal center.
As she loves Grease she loved the bits when the girls were acting the play out. 
She would definitely recommend to all her friends and is eager to read any others in the series.

I really like this book because it showed how much your confidence can grow if you try different things and find something you like doing.
I loved all the characters in the book especially Hermione, because I am a big Harry Potter fan.
You don't have to be computer mad to enjoy it!

In the first book of the series we focus on Lucy who's new to the UK and her school. As she tried to fit in with the girls at her new school, she meets Hermione, Jessie and Abby whom all help her as she sets up her YouTube channel to help document her life and share with her best friend back home, Morgan.

Lucy also helps out at the farm where her mum works as a vet and as a fundraiser comes up the girls hope to raise awareness and get people to attend and donate to save the farm. She also has to deal with her growing crush on farm worker Sam and evil school enemy Dakota whom wants to make Lucy feel bad for her stammer she suffers with.

The girls all set up a collaborative channel too which they call Girl's Can Vlog where they can all upload video's together to share the fun and joy of vlogging.

Overall it was a great start to the series and I loved Lucy and the girls working together and bonding over a now common hobby and interest of vlogging online. It had fun, laughs and love for friends and coping with change as well as health troubles. It was a typical teen read and will satisfy your quick YA read desires!

I really enjoyed this book and loved the characters Lucy, Abby, Jess and hermionie because of their fun personalities especially when having the best time at their sleepovers.I found it really cool and enjoyable how the book went from normal to youtube clips to texting.I also loved when the girls auditioned, acted and performed grease as it was super fun and exciting to read. I couldn't book this book down and absolutely loved reading it, I can't wait to read the next.

This is a good book because it's about girl power. But not only that, it's also about taking up courage to do many things such as doing an audition of making a video.

Lucy moves to a new country, new school and new house all at the same time. Her best friend Morgan encourages her to vlog after a bad first day at school. She makes 3 new good friends. It's the best story I have read.

the things i like about this book is that its by a persons point of view, and that there are some difficult situations . which actually made you a little tense. Something i didn't like about this book was that there were not any surprises and you could usually tell what was going to happen next. the characters had very different personalities. One was very sporty but one loved lipstick and shopping. one liked WAIT no LOVED Harry potter too.I did enjoy the story a lot. I think that the story is for girls. I think that its for 8 year old and up.

My favourite part in the book was when Lucy and her friends meet red velvet because if i met a vlogger that famous I would be really astonished.
My favourite character is Morgan because she got Lucy into vlogging in the first place.
My least favourite character is Dakota beacuse she is like a shark in lip gloss and killer heels. She is the school bully.
My least favourite part is when  Lucy falls over in the puddle because i would be dead embarrassed , especialy on my first day of school.
I Felt a bit sorry for Lucy and her stammer.
I really loved this book and would really love to read another book like it soon

madeleine seen this in a giveaway and when she wasnt lucky enough to be selected she insisted i buy this book instantly. well im pleased i did she loved it. She particularly enjoyed reading the different format texts i.e the vlogs or email conversation. It also helps to prompt conversations surrounding internet safety and staying safe online.

I was quite surprised that I enjoyed this book seeing as I'm not very into youtube. It had lots of funny parts, but it was also quite good on friendship. 
My favourite parts were the vlogs seeing as I've never watched one before, and because they were full of interesting things.

I thought this was a really good book.
