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 <3 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 a really cute book. It wasn't too fluffy, but it was definitely leaning towards it. Corny but cute, that's how I'd describe it. Corny in a good way. Mostly.
There are quite a few things that I liked about Click to Subscribe. One was that the protagonist was a male and he has a vlog channel! I've never really read about anyone who does something like that on the internet. Obviously, I watch vloggers on YouTube and all that, but I've never read a fictional book about a person who does that. It was kind of cool. I also liked the dialogue between West and Cat. They were awkward and weird and reminded me a lot of my friends and I. They were quite cute. The thing is, I also found this book to be pretty predictable. I knew what was going to happen, it just took a while for it to get there. West, c'mon man. YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH HER. GO GET HER BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!
I also really liked the fact that there was a more serious side to the book, involving West's father. He was an alcoholic and didn't work or do much of anything. The interactions between West and his father were tense and there was one scene where it was very powerful. I thought the writing was, while yes a little cheesy, pretty good and I really enjoyed the story. It was a quick read and it's a good book for a day when you need something light.
