YouTube star Zoe Sugg–aka Zoella–launched her new book Girl Online: The First Novel by Zoella today. Or more properly, #girlonline. From the look of the tweets it’ll be the kind of smash hit the 24-year-old Zoella has grown accustomed to. @kezza_pocka says “you should be so proud, this book is excellent. I’m on Chapter 12 and I’ve already laughed, cried and loved it all.”
Girl Online has been a best seller for more than a month, just counting pre-publication pre-orders. Now some of Zoella’s fans have their hands on an actual paper item, a foreign medium to many who grew up online and read their books on tablets–when they read them at all. (More than a few excited fans have confessed that Girl Online will be their first book!) It is indisputably Zoe Sugg’s first–and it’s a debut that points to a very quick follow up. The tweet below is about Girl Online, but it could as easily be about Zoella’s next book, too. Btw, you can follow the fuss @ZozeeBo.
