Click Here (to find out how I survived seventh grade)

Click Here (to find out how I survived seventh grade)
By Denise Vega
5 out of 5 stars


Erin Swift isn’t exactly an ‘early bloomer’. In fact, she’s quite the opposite. Still in the process of becoming shapely, she starts the seventh grade. Then she learns that her best friend isn’t on the same track (Class A) as her. Talk about hyperventilation! How could Erin survive the halls of middle school without her fabulously dressed, head-turning leader at her side? Erin creates her own personal website where she can write about her feelings and events that she has been going through. When her website accidentally is shared on the school’s Intranet*, Erin has to keep her head held high so that she can find the strength to survive middle school.

Written with enthusiasm and creativity, Click Here is superb! Author Denise Vega did the most wonderful job of sharing the thoughts of the regular seventh grade girl. It was filled with humor and genuine characters that put a smile on my face. Everything made so much sense that it blew my mind. I am very fond of the excellent writing though at some points, it didn’t seem like a 12-year-old wrote it. This book expresses friendship the way most girls see it. If you’re either ten or twenty, you will be able to relate.

Contains: some crude humor

I am very glad that this book is so clean! Thank you for that, Mrs. Vega. : )

  4. Hey, there! Thanks to Google Alerts, I was notified about your absolutely lovely review. Thank you so much. BTW, look for the sequel to CLICK HERE coming out in July: ACCESS DENIED (and other eighth grade error messages).

    And I have to tell you that if you hadn't mentioned that you were a teen, I would have assumed you were older by the quality of your writing in the review. I hope you pursue your dream of becoming an author and cafe owner - a perfect combination - because you are already an excellent writer!

    XOXO,
    Denise
    author, CLICK HERE (to find out how i survived seventh grade) and the recent teen novel, FACT OF LIFE #31

    Thanks so much for stopping by at my blog, Mrs. Vega! Your comment means a lot to me. :) Believe it or not, I've already read the sequel to CLICK HERE. I'm reviewing it for HipScouts at Hachette. I loved that one also! Good luck on the release in July!

    I hadn't known you wrote another book, Fact of Life #31! I am going to request it at my library. Thanks again for leaving the comment! :D

  11. I really loved the book. It was probably the best book I've ever read. The worst part was that the book was short. I wish it was longer since it was SOOOOO GOOD!!! There should be more books like this one.:) While I was reading, I came to the last blog entry and didn't quite understand what Erin and Mark we glad they tried but decided they will never do it again(they decided it after they kissed).
