Girls Can Vlog: Lucy Locket Online Disaster

Publisher: Macmillan Children’s Books

Review

A new country, new home, and now a new school. Lucy misses her friends, her stammer is worse than ever, and now school bully Dakota has made an extremely embarrassing video of Lucy’s disastrous first day and posted it online for everyone to see.

Lucy’s best friend suggests she try vlogging to help make new friends and share what’s happening in her life with her old ones. At first Lucy’s sceptical, but then she figures she’s got nothing to lose. Surprisingly, it’s a success and soon Lucy has the vlogging bug. But Dakota is determined to make Lucy’s life hell, and now Lucy’s mum’s new job is suddenly in jeopardy. Will vlogging turn out to be a help or a hindrance?

With diary-style transcripts of Lucy’s vlogs interspersed throughout the book, this is a fun and highly relatable story detailing the anxieties of everyday life as Lucy gradually acclimatises to her new school and new friends. Perfect for anyone who loves stories about friendship and its ups and downs, and finding your inner braveness to try new things. Plus there are great tips for anyone keen to start their own vlog!
