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.
From the very first chapter, I was already laughing and feeling the easy vibe of the book. I like the way West (a.k.a Sam Green online) and Harper (a.k.a Cat in real life) talk via email. They are so funny and cute. Same as the way West and Cat talk and act in real life. I knew when I started reading this book, I'd never stop until I reach the last page. And as I read on, I can't stop grinning and feeling the butterflies.
There were instances, though, that I was annoyed with West. Like when he said he needed Cat in his life and then he'd call her and when she's there, he'd leave her. And sometimes he also acts like a girl. It was annoying and I feel like punching him in the face. I mean, how could he call her and leave her alone? I was also almost scared on his situation with his dad. I'm glad it had a happy ending, which I kind of expected already. But still.
I noticed that the story was almost told on the blurb. I wished it was more shorter and more mysterious. But when I read the book, it has got more story on it and more emotions you could ever imagine. As predicted, Click to Subscribe was a quick romantic cute read. Although I assumed, I am still not prepared of how awesome was the combination of it all that made me feel all giddy and this book to oh-so lovely. The best thing about this book is that you will experience the feels from the beginning. It will keep you feeling til the end of the book--love, pain, sorrow, happiness.
Reading Click to Subscribe was totally fun. It made me miss reading cute YA contemporaries (and I think I'm gonna read more of them soon because my tbr's full of sci-fi and paranormal) and feel the warmth and craziness of falling in love. I am very lucky to be given a chance to read this book, I really liked it. I'd recommend this to everyone who likes to read light, cute, romantic, hilarious and dorky. You HAVE to read this. Best for summer, winter, school days, weekend, laid-back and stressing days of your life.
