In a nutshell: vlogging comedy with irresistible central character | The new book from the author of My Mad Fat Diary is aimed at slightly younger readers and tells the story of Millie, accidentally catapulted into stardom when her vlog about the things that matter most to girls like her (family, boys, make-up, cats) takes off. According to her mum, Millie has a good ear and a soft shoulder; she’s normally the sensible one amongst friends and family alike, but when her mum’s boyfriend’s obsessive cleaning gets too much for her she lets her heart rule and moves out to live with her dad and grandad. Yet despite her outward calm, Millie suffers from terrible anxiety. Written in a wonderfully engaging first person narrative, Millie’s story will speak directly to its audience and is funny, truthful, reassuring and very, very cheering.
Millie Porter is fed up of being tragic and is determined to do something a bit out there and not like her normal dull self. With the help of her best friend, she is going to start a vlog. But can she become an online sensation with only a best friend who is fab at contouring and a cat who likes standing on her head? Probably not but she's going to try. And not even Erin Breeler, Instagram Queen, can stop her.
