Welcome back to Friday Reads! I hope you'll take a moment to read about this week's recommendation, CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE by L.M. Augustine.
I'm a real sucker for a friendship-turned-romance story, so this book hooked me from the beginning. I also loved the way technology plays such a big part in the story. Like it or not, technology is here to stay, and it's one of the main ways kids communicate these days. West and Cat tugged at my heartstrings as they tried to navigate the tricky road from friends to "more" than friends!
135,789. That's how many subscribers sixteen-year-old West Ryder has on his web vlog series. But he only has eyes for one of them.
As one of the internet's most prestigious video bloggers, West talks about high school relationships under the name "Sam Green". As far as he knows, no one from school, not even his best friend, Cat, has seen his videos. But the highlight of the whole thing is Harper Knight, who comments every day at exactly 2:02 in the afternoon. He doesn't know anything about her aside from the occasional deep philosophical messaging on why pizza tastes so delicious, but as stupid as it sounds, he might be falling for her. So when they finally agree to meet in real life, Wes's hope for romance seems more and more in reach. But that all changes as soon as he arrives at their meeting spot and sees Cat walking toward him, wearing the same, "I Love Sam Green" T-shirt Harper promised she'd have one.
To his alarm, West realizes he is falling in love with his best friend who has always been a sister to him.
You can find West and Cat wherever books are sold!
