Book Review: Just for Clicks by Kara McDowell

YA/250 pages/ Amberjack Publishing (January 29,2019)

About the book: Twin sisters Claire & Poppy are accidental social media stars thanks to Mom going viral when they were babies. Now, as teens, they’re expected to contribute by building their own brand. Attending a NY fashion week and receiving fan mail is a blast. Fending off internet trolls and would-be kidnappers? Not so much. Poppy embraces it. Claire hates it. Will anybody accept her as “just Claire”? And what should Claire do about Mom’s old journals? The handwritten entries definitely don’t sound like Mom’s perfect blog persona. Worse, one of them divulges a secret that leaves Claire wondering what else in her life might be nothing but a sham . . .

I love the cover.

I also love how the author created two sisters; one is not excited about the all the attention they get online and the other thrives on it. Their relationship coupled with their Mom’s involvement in the social media relevance and ‘clicks’ gave me ‘Momager’ feels. It was hilarious as it was a great read.

Perhaps the greatest thing about this book is that it speaks of the current times and the angst not only young but everyone experiences now with content we share online. We cannot escape the vlogs, blogs and lifestyle updates- constantly catching up with people’s lives.

It’s fast paced, touches on internet use and privacy and also has surprising twists and turns, just what you need to enjoy reading it!

I would like to send my regards to Netgalley and Amberjack Publishing for granting me an eARC to read.
