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.

I haven’t been this squiffed out about a book in such a long time. It had everything I needed and more. It had happy, it had sad, it had laugh out loud funny and it had wow, i totally felt that way as a teenager. i don’t know how he managed it but L.M. has encompassed the teenage psyche so well that he deserves a prize. I have not seen a job this well done since I read “The Perks of Being a Wallflower’. You felt the heart of the book beat along with your own. Having grown up in the age just before and just after the internet really making its mark on the social scene I think that Click really brings forth the harrowing experience it is not only to put yourself out there but to not know what you are going to get in return. Being a teen is tough and being in love is tougher. Add ice cream, cows and vlogs and you just have a whole new ball game. When it all came down to it, Click is about love, pure and simple. The love of a Mom, the love of a friendship, the first love and yes a love of rainbow sprinkles. I have read this book about 4 times now, flipping through it when I am having a tough day and need something to make me smile. L.M. you have made a fan for life, see I even made you a shirt…(Which by the way is WAY COOLER than Harper’s) ;^D
