Editing Emma: The Secret Blog of a Nearly Proper Person


Electronic book text Edition 2017


Move over Georgia Nicolson. Say goodbye to Geek Girl. Meet Emma Nash. When sixteen year old Emma is ghosted by love of her life Leon Naylor she does what any normal girl would do.Emma spends the summer lurking in her bedroom, avoiding all human contact (and the shower), surrounded by the collection of chewit wrappers she saved from packs Leon gave her, back when he actually acknowledged her existence... But seeing Leon suddenly `In a relationship' on Facebook with the perfect Anna, spurs Emma into action and she embarks on a mission to make positive changes to her life (or `edits,' if you will) and vows to use the internet for more than obsessively stalking Leon's activities! Instead, she will use it for good and noble causes like finding someone who will actually be nice to her, and recording her findings for the rest of the world to see (i.e. BFF Steph and her mum) on her new Editing Emma blog. But Emma soon discovers her `habit' is harder to break than she first thought - turns out she's not the only one `editing' herself online (thank you Tinder for finding her mum's profile, age 35, really?) and that life through an Instagram filter isn't always what it's cracked up to be. But it could be worse, she could have outed her best friend, accidentally chatted up a 12 year old boy and revealed to the world why Leon Naylor is worth no girl's time or virginity... oh no wait, that's exactly what happened...
