The things that have made Zoe Suggs’s lifestyle vlog such a phenomenon with teenagers are exactly the things that will make her new novel such a hit with them. In On Tour her central character Penny, just post-GCSEs, is off on the road with her rock star boyfriend though still worrying about what people think of her, and stressing about what to do next in her life. Addressing the reader direct in first person present tense, or via blog entries, Penny describes a world we’d all like to inhabit, with close friends, an understanding family and supportive teachers; she’s refreshingly honest about her own lack of confidence and anxiety attacks; and puts a reassuring emphasis on the importance of being true to yourself. Suggs’s character might be Cinderella in a fantasy world, but she’s a Cinderella who understands just how you feel and talks as though you’re her closest friend. ~ Andrea Reece
Amy McCulloch, editorial director of Penguin Children’s, says ‘Working with Zoe on Girl Online: On Tour has been an absolute pleasure and I'm so proud to see how much she's grown as a writer. We can't wait for readers to find out what happens to Noah and Penny!’
The sequel to the number-one best-seller Girl Online. Girl Online: On Tour picks up six months after the events of Girl Online.
Penny joins her rock-star boyfriend, Noah, on his European music tour. Penny's bags are packed. When Noah invites Penny on his European music tour, she can't wait to spend time with her rock-god-tastic boyfriend. But, between Noah's jam-packed schedule, less-than-welcoming bandmates and threatening messages from jealous fans, Penny wonders whether she's really cut out for life on tour. She can't help but miss her family, her best friend Elliot...and her blog, Girl Online.
Can Penny learn to balance life and love on the road, or will she lose everything in pursuit of the perfect summer?
Zoe’s novel-writing journey began in 2014, with the publication of her debut novel, Girl Online. With her first novel under her belt, she has now been able to work more independently on her second novel, which she has written herself with the ongoing close support of her Penguin Random House editor, Amy Alward. Amy frequently appears in her vlogs as they work on the novel together.
Zoe comments: ‘I have absolutely loved working with Amy. She’s taught me so much about the writing process and how to develop my writing skills so having her helping me with that has been lovely. I’ve really
enjoyed writing Girl Online: On Tour. I especially loved developing the characters further, adding new characters and furthering the plot and the storyline. It’s been a really exciting and fulfilling process and I really hope that you love it as much as I do!’
