1,135,789. 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, West’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
Sam Green ” T-shirt Harper promised she'd have on.
To his alarm, West realizes he is falling in love with the best friend who has always been a sister to him.
This was such a cute read. I just adored the relationship between Cat and West. Their banter was fun to read about and I caught myself laughing out loud several times. But there were also the times that I found myself hurting with Cat. I hated that she went through this all by herself it seems. To be honest, even though West was 'dealing' with this new proclamation of Cat being in love with him, I still thought he was very selfish. Everything that went on he turned on himself and was always worried about how it affected him. Even when he started realizing he had feelings for her that went beyond friends, he would quickly shut them down and focus on his needs and feelings.
But even though I thought he was selfish through it all, I did like him. In fact, I think I would have thought the story unbelievable if he acted any other way. He does have a lot to deal with concerning his father and now finding out that his best friend is in love with him. So I gave him the benefit of the doubt. But what was great about it all was his feelings were not instant love when he finds out that Cat has been playing the role of Harper this entire time. I loved seeing West deal and try to accept her feelings but still try to stay 'just friends'. It is not an easy road and they do have a lot to work through.
There is something though that I would have loved to have seen and that would have been Cat's POV played out in the book. I really think she had a lot to bring to the story. To be able to see how she felt and how it all affected her would have brought about more emotion too, I believe. I liked this girl and would have loved to have heard more of her 'voice' throughout the story. Even without her side of the story I still enjoyed this book. It was so cute and fun.
CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE was such a great read and really quick too. I flew through the story and absolutely loved the flow of it all. It is a perfect YA read (with some minor language) that any one is sure to enjoy.
