Girl Online: Going Solo
This is the third installment in the Girl Online trilogy by Zoe Sugg, continuing the story of Penny. Penny is introverted and shy but she slowly brings herself out of her comfort zone to build up her confidence and find herself in the messy world of being a teen. Still heartbroken, Penny and her rekindled friendship with Megan leads her to meet new friends, new boys and causes some commotion as always. Through photography, a private school musical of West Side Story, and a meet up with her friend Leah she brings together everyone and everything she cares about. This book represents finding yourself and building up the confidence to survive on your own.
A much slower storyline than the previous two books in the Girl Online series but after a large portion of the book it begins to get better. The main difference in this book is Noah, one of the previous main characters, has basically disappeared from the face of the earth and becomes more of a ghost character. In Girl Online: Going Solo, Penny must find her way on her own while struggling to help out everyone around her with their own issues. She is faced with a huge wedding in Ireland and it may not be the getaway she hoped it would be, and her escape route may have just turned into a hidden trap. No matter what happens to Penny she always finds a way to make the best of the situation in the hopes that everything will come together in the end. But happily ever after isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be.
Well written but a definite change from Girl Online and Girl Online On Tour. Zoe Sugg as always does an amazing job of showing that life is far from perfect but that those quirks in life build you and create who you are. – Zoe P.
