`I am so glad I read this book. It's like an old friend who will cheer you up and make you feel a bit better about all those times you've made a twit of yourself.' Alex Bell, author of Frozen Charlotte

`Great for fans of Holly Bourne' Katy Birchall, author of The It Girl

`According to Netflix, this is NOT how my teenage life is supposed to look.'

When Emma Nash is ghosted by love of her life Leon Naylor, she does what any girl would do - spends the summer avoiding all human contact, surrounded by the Chewit wrappers he left behind.

Seeing Leon suddenly `in a relationship' on Facebook, however, spurs Emma into action. She vows to use the internet for good (instead of stalking Leon's social media),chronicling her adventures on her new Editing Emma blog.

But life online doesn't always run smoothly.

From finding her mum's Tinder profile, to getting catfished and accidentally telling the entire world why Leon Naylor is worth no girl's virginity... Surely nothing else could go wrong?!

Chloe Seager grew up in East London with her Mum and much-loved cat, Katie. She studied English Literature and Drama at the University of East Anglia, where she sadly realised she couldn't act, but did rediscover her love of children's books. Children's Literature was one of her favourite modules, and it made her wonder why grown-ups ever stopped reading them. She now works with YA and kids' books full-time. Chloe lives back in East London with her boyfriend and pet fish.

A book about a girl blogging about her life, discussing issues like periods, masturbation, boys and booze like they shouldn’t even be ‘issues’ to talk about? I’d been hoping for a really long time for Editing Emma to be released in India and when I got the opportunity to read and review it for Harper Collins India, I was BEYOND overjoyed! I finished Editing Emma in a mere two days (or should I say very busy evenings) and while at times, the book frustrated me, I did really like going on this journey with Emma through her blog posts. Here are my thoughts: 1. After reading this book from end to end, I can HONESTLY say teenage girls are confusing and I AM A TEENAGE GIRL, so you could tell how confusing it was for me. I really liked Emma – she was honest and spunky and slightly irritating and I spent 330 pages immersed in her innermost thoughts and I came out of them confused. 2. In fact, even the boys confused me. (WAIT: IF I DON’T GET TEENAGERS, DOES IT MEAN I’VE GROWN PAST TEENAGER-DOM?) They were cute and charming and nice until they were needy and rude and GHOSTED GIRLS FOR NO REASON? 3. I actually think all the confusion that I’m talking about above just goes to show HOW ACCUTARELY the life of a high-schooler was portrayed. It felt real and it also annoyed me, and I laughed and felt for the characters. ESSENTIALLY, THIS BOOK CAPTURED EVERYTHING YOU FEEL AS A TEENAGER. 4. I REALLY like that this was told through blog posts. Essentially it was The Princess Diaries, but in the form of a blog and not a diary. 5. Emma’s sense of humour and sarcasm levels were OFF THE CHARTS, which was what made this book funny. There are resolutions and lists and awkward first text-versations with boys and also not to mention, a beheaded stuffed giraffe. I loved the hilarity of her life and her spin on it. 6. This book was about growing up and learning to love yourself in a world where nobody will let you. It was about finding your corner and your people and what’s important and it was done through a teenager which I TRULY applaud. An honest, unflinching and hilarious (if at times eye-roll worthy) coming of age book that should be added to the top of your ever growing TBRs. 4 stars and definitely worth a read!

When I was a teenager, my shelves were bursting with Louise Rennison. I would live for the release of the next book, each in their slightly sparkly hardbacks, absolutely stuffed with hilarious stories of Georgia and the Sex God. I met Chloe in a bar a few months back, where we awkwardly both managed to separately butt into a private party upstairs then identified we were both book people by our choice of literary tote bags. We had a long chat about the importance of Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging on our generation, and she casually mentioned her novel coming out soon. As soon as the proof arrived, I tucked down to read it and within about 30 seconds I was cackling. Praise be, Chloe Seager is this generations Louise Rennison - there I said it! Emma's boyfriend Leon seems to have dropped off the scene this summer, and when Emma sees a status announcement that Leon is in a relationship with Anna McDowell, she absolutely melts down. After several weeks of moping, Emma decides to rebrand herself and her blog, making way for life edits for the better. Together with her gaggle of three friends Steph, Faith and Gracie, she tries to navigate heartbreak, chatting up men on the internet and getting too drunk at parties. Editing Emma is not just witty, but it is frank and contains a lot of healthy discussion of girls masturbating, which is really important for young girls to read about! Editing Emma also tackles ghosting, coming out and dating people you really aren't that into. I'm already looking forward to reading it again, as I know its going to be one of those books you pick up on bad days to lift you up. Bravo Chloe! Thanks to HQ Stories for sharing this copy with me!
