Boys, bullies, and blogs come together in a book that brings the popular online diary format to print.

For fans of Lauren Myracle’s ttyl, ttfn, and l8r, g8r, this fun, fast-paced book introduces an unforgettable and relatable heroine and features chapter openers designed to look like the pages of an online blog. An innovative debut, Something to Blog About is filled with the memorable missteps and heartfelt emotions of growing up.

Libby Fawcett decides to start a secret blog so that she can have an outlet to vent her feelings and frustrations. When Seth Jacobs (her crush since eighth grade) witnesses her tragic (and comic) run-in with a Bunsen burner in chemistry class, or when she finds out that her mother is dating the father of her arch-nemesis, Angel Rodriguez, she’s able to keep a level head and make it through school each day with each blog posting. But when her entries get posted all over for the whole world to see, will Libby be able to walk the halls—or face Seth—ever again?

Debut author Shana Norris will win over a whole new generation of teens as she hilariously chronicles the pitfalls and triumphs of the life of a high school girl.

Something to blog about by Shana Norris is about a girl named Libby. She has a enemy named Angel since she was in kindergarten. According to Libby, Angel's only mission in life is to make Libby miserable. So Libby decides to start a secret blog where she can express her feelings and frustratioins. But when Libby thought things couldn't get any worse, Angel plays her most wicked prank yet. In this book, Shana Norris describes the events that are life changing for Libby. I really enjoyed this book. While reading this book, I was very absorbed into the story. It was very hard to put the book down. I could easily relate to what Libby was feeling. It felt as if I was right there with Libby in chemistry class when she burns her hair. Aside from the story, I really enjoyed the cover of the book. The three boxes show the scene that happens at the beginning of the book. This event in Libby's life is very significant. I would recommend this book to my friends because any one can easily relate. I don't know about adults but I am sure that teenagers will love this book that has a little romance and a lot of drama. Something to blog about is a must read.

This book was fun, enjoyable, and although it was somewhat predictable at points, I loved it none the less. I felt like I could really relate to the main character and although this is not one of the most thought provoking or best written books I have ever read, I loved reading it in the summer. I read this book and reccomend it for all teenagers even those who are 17 or 18. This book was great and was fun without being morally questionable.

Alrighty, this book was very much like 'Click Here' by Denise Vega; the whole going-through-school thing, blogging online, and aforementioned blog being spilled to the school. However, I'm not going to hold the plot against Shana Norris, so here's my review. When I first saw the cover, I thought it'd be those comic-strip based stories. It wasn't, but I enjoyed 'Something To Blog About' nonetheless. From the first page, I was gripped. The reality of Libby's life at home and at school was something I could easily relate to. I can't count how many times I threw the book across the room because of Queen Bee Angel Riviera. Hey, any book that can give you that type of emotion is A+!! I'd definitely recommend this book to any teenage girls, since it's usually us who have to deal with all the drama at school. (:

Sometimes you just have to have a place to vent, ya know?

That's why Libby Fawcett started her blog. She wrote about her most embarrassing moments, like when she caught her hair on fire in chemistry class right in front of Seth Jacobs! She posted an entry the day she found out her mom was dating someone and that it had been going on for months. She blogged about her morning breath that tasted like she'd "been eating socks" in her sleep and the pimple on her earlobe. And she wrote about her cousin, Roger, who was crushing on her best friend, Keisha. She wrote about everything. And why not? She'd taken precautions. The blog was set to private. No one else could see it. Could they?

Angel Rivera, Libby's sworn enemy, torments Libby on a daily basis at school. When the girls discover their parents are dating one another, the harassment escalates. When Libby finds herself suspended after one of Angel's pranks, she realizes that she's being used to help break up their parents. Does she really want to cause her mother that much pain? Doing the right thing becomes even more difficult after Angel manages to turn the entire school against Libby.

SOMETHING TO BLOG ABOUT by Shana Norris is funny and engaging, a wonderful glimpse into the topsy-turvy emotions of a teen in love, who's also dealing with a parent who's dating and in love. I was only a few chapters in when my twelve-year-old daughter snagged my copy and read it straight through. She loved it! This first novel by Shana Norris is definitely "SOMETHING TO BLOG ABOUT!"
