August 2017 Debut of the Month Move over Georgia Nicolson. Say goodbye to Geek Girl. Meet Emma Nash. `According to Netflix, this is NOT how my teenage life is supposed to look.' Nursing a broken heart, Emma Nash spends her summer in her room, hiding from the world. 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?!

Synopsis

Editing Emma by Chloe Seager

When sixteen year old Emma is ghosted by love of her life Leon Naylor she does what any normal girl would do. Emma spends the summer lurking in her bedroom, avoiding all human contact (and the shower), surrounded by the collection of chewit wrappers she saved from packs Leon gave her, back when he actually acknowledged her existence...But seeing Leon suddenly 'In a relationship' on Facebook with the perfect Anna, spurs Emma into action and she embarks on a mission to make positive changes to her life (or 'edits,' if you will) and vows to use the internet for more than obsessively stalking Leon's activities! Instead, she will use it for good and noble causes like finding someone who will actually be nice to her, and recording her findings for the rest of the world to see (i.e. BFF Steph and her mum) on her new Editing Emma blog. But Emma soon discovers her 'habit' is harder to break than she first thought - turns out she's not the only one 'editing' herself online (thank you Tinder for finding her mum's profile, age 35, really?) and that life through an Instagram filter isn't always what it's cracked up to be. But it could be worse, she could have outed her best friend, accidentally chatted up a 12 year old boy and revealed to the world why Leon Naylor is worth no girl's time or virginity...oh no wait, that's exactly what happened...

Reviews

'Editing Emma was over all too quickly for me as reading it felt like hanging out with one of my most entertaining fiends. Emma's inner-thoughts were a painfully funny romp through a bundle of boy disasters and friend dramas, and it was packed with hilariously accurate observations totally nailed in single sentences. Loved it.' Beth Garrod, author of Superawkward

'Editing Emma is a great debut; extremely funny and very frank. I loved reading this one (even the bits where I was looking through my hands because I was cringing with embarrassment at some of the situations Emma found herself in!) Fans of YA contemporary books - especially Super Awkward, Lobsters and Candy Harper's Faith trilogy - have definitely got a new author to look out for here.'

'A joy to read - so smart and funny Perdita Cargill, co-author of Waiting for Callback

'Many genuine laugh-out-loud moments Tom Ellen, co-author of Lobsters

'Editing Emma is great fun and full of laugh-out-loud moments. I love this warm, witty debut...everyone will fall for Emma, her pals and their bonkers antics! Great for fans of Holly Bourne. Katy Birchall, author The It Girl series
