Book Overview


‘I am so glad I read this book. It’s like an old friend who will cheer you up and make you feel a bit better about all those times you’ve made a twit of yourself.’ Alex Bell, author of Frozen Charlotte

‘Great for fans of Holly Bourne’ Katy Birchall, author of The It Girl

‘According to Netflix, this is NOT how my teenage life is supposed to look.’

When Emma Nash is ghosted by love of her life Leon Naylor, she does what any girl would do – spends the summer avoiding all human contact, surrounded by the Chewit wrappers he left behind.

Seeing Leon suddenly ‘in a relationship’ on Facebook, however, spurs Emma into action. She vows to use the internet for good (instead of stalking Leon’s social media),chronicling her adventures on her new Editing Emma blog.

But life online doesn’t always run smoothly.

From finding her mum’s Tinder profile, to getting catfished and accidentally telling the entire world why Leon Naylor is worth no girl’s virginity… Surely nothing else could go wrong?!

About the author


Chloe Seager grew up in East London with her Mum and much-loved cat, Katie. She studied English Literature and Drama at the University of East Anglia, where she sadly realised she couldn't act, but did rediscover her love of children's books.Children's Literature was one of her favourite modules, and it made her wonder why grown-ups ever stopped reading them. She now works with YA and kids’ books full-time. Chloe lives back in East London with her boyfriend and pet fish.

Reviews


  • ‘Editing Emma was over all too quickly for me as reading it felt like hanging out with one of my most entertaining fiends. Emma’s inner-thoughts were a painfully funny romp through a bundle of boy disasters and friend dramas, and it was packed with hilariously accurate observations totally nailed in single sentences. Loved it. ‘ Beth Garrod, author of Superawkward
  • ‘Editing Emma is a great debut; extremely funny and very frank. I loved reading this one (even the bits where I was looking through my hands because I was cringing with embarrassment at some of the situations Emma found herself in!) Fans of YA contemporary books – especially Super Awkward, Lobsters and Candy Harper’s Faith trilogy – have definitely got a new author to look out for here.’ Jim, YA YEAH YEAH http://www.yayeahyeah.com/
  • ‘A joy to read – so smart and funny’ Perdita Cargill, co-author of Waiting for Callback
  • ‘Many genuine laugh-out-loud moments’ Tom Ellen, co-author of Lobsters.
  • ‘Editing Emma is great fun and full of laugh-out-loud moments. I love this warm, witty debut…everyone will fall for Emma, her pals and their bonkers antics! Great for fans of Holly Bourne. ‘ Katy Birchall, author The It Girl series
