July 2018 Book of the Month | In a nutshell: 21st century style fun and friendship | In book 5 of this popular series, our gang of friends/vloggers Lucy, Abby, Hermione and Jessie, are enjoying a special week camping, and not just on any old campsite – they’ll be going to a famous music festival too. It should be a holiday they’ll never forget, but tensions between Jessie and Abby threaten to spoil it for everyone. Then Sassy arrives and does something so irresponsible it seems like they’ll all miss out on the festival. Told in a mix of straight narrative, diary entries and vlog scripts, this series feels bang up to date, while still keeping the emphasis firmly on the things that have always mattered most to young girls – friendships, confidence, finding out who you are. Hashtag heart-warming! ~ Andrea Reece
School's out and glamping is go! The Girls Can Vlog gang is going on tour once more in Girls Can Vlog: Festival Frenzy, a summer special from author Emma Moss. When Lucy's parents plan a camping trip, Lucy manages to convince them to let her bring the rest of the gang along to attend Chesterbury Music Festival. It looks set to be a summer they will never forget!
