Click Here is an excellent book! It is actually my favorite book. The Author did a wonderful job making me laugh and enjoy every part of this story. Click Here proved to me that it was an extremly sucessful novel. I pretty much liked everything in this book. I think that every part of the novel actually worked for me, but I especially enjoyed the parts of the book where the main character,Erin, writes in her computer diary. It is really funny and makes you think. The author uses exellent word c ...more

i don't even remember what this one was about. i only remember that she had big feet. not a memorable book.

Erin Swift is going into seventh grade. It’s her first year of middle school, and the first time she'll be separated from her best friend, Jilly. As she's working things out and settling in at her new school, she starts a private blog where she writes all her feelings and thoughts. Everything seems to be going great, until her secret blog is accidentally uploaded to the school website for everyone to read.

This was SOOOO cute. Oh my Goodness. I loved it. I was really happy I picked this on

Click Here by Denise Vega is a phenomenal book about 7th grader Erin Swift and how her life gets flipped upside down. Imagine that you had a online diary and wrote everything (I mean EVERYTHING) on it. When you and your classmates made a internet for the school. When you were home sick and it was launching. They took the wrong file and your personal diary ended up on the front page of the internet. Well, that’s exactly what happened to Erin Swift. On her diary there was secrets like her crush, a ...more

"Click Here to Find Out How I Survived Seventh Grade" was a great book. It was all about a girl named Erin Swift trying to survive seventh grade a.k.a. her first year at Molly Brown Middle School. It follows her life and talks about her first semester of school which includes crushing on a boy in home-room; losing a best friend; making new frinds; making a private web page and getting in REALLY tough situations! Read this book to find out how Erin P. Swift survives seventh grade.

"Click Here" is a cute book written from the perspective of a 7th grade girl who is socially awkward, shy, and hopeless in ove with a boy she can nly dmire from afar. i found it funny and relateabl because, as crazy as this may sound, i was once shy and awkward around eerybody and also kept a diary. its amusing to me to look at her blog enteries and think of my old diary and realize how similar they are.

The book click here has officially become my favourite book. I am absolutely DYING while I wait for the sequel to arrive by mail.
This book was so funny and sometimes dramatic but a great mix altogether. The Way Erin handles everything at the end literally blew my mind.
And how Jilly did not listen to Erin but did to Mark.
There was a twist around every corner.
I loved this book sooooo much, no joke.
5 out of 5 stars.

I found this read when I was shuffling through a shoulder high stack of books at my city's book fair. I seemed fairly satisfied with the basic storyline embossed on the back in glossy black writing, that was gathered within alluring, colorful and disturbingly pleasant pictures. (Disturbing because it was mostly pictures of candy, tongues and braces if I recall correctly, oh! And not to mention abnormally size-able feet...)
The story basically revolves around this young girl (really can't bother t

Shelves: 8th-grade
The book has potential, but it ends up like a regular middle school horror story book about a girl who loves a popular but thoughtful boy, has an enemy with a long, important sounding name (Serena Worthington, anyone?) and has a slightly more popular than her best friend. Erin tries to defeat the stereotype of normal, angsty, middle-school aged narrator but sounds like the rest of them. The author tried to mix it up, instead of the girl writing poems or drawing a piece and entering it in the sch ...more

Recommends it for: 8th/9th Graders.
Click Here is an excellent book because of the amazing word choice the author uses. I believe that that is kind of what middle school is like, how everything gets around so fast. When I read about the part where Erin accidentally gave the wrong disk to Tyler I felt absolutely bad for her. The things that she wanted to keep to herself were now all over the school intranet. Also I hated how Serina bumped into Erin and acted like a told snob and told Erin to watch where she was going… I absolutely ...more

'Click Here' by Denise Vega, is about a girl named Erin Swift,who had a very dynamic seventh grade. Walking into the doors of MBMS Erin had no idea how diverse her life was about to become. From devastation to romances and humiliation, Erin experienced it all. Not only did she create a blog, but she poured all of her mixed emotions onto her not so private site. After all she is the computer whiz, so how could anything possibly go wrong with her well structured site? I would recommend this book t ...more

This is the best book ever!!!!!! One of my favorites!!!!!!! I just read it and I am re-reading it. It is sooooo good!!!! Definatley one of my favorites. It is realistic fiction, about a seventh grade girl, and I could relate to her very well, and I finished it in two days, so it wasn't too easy, but it wasn't too hard, and it was great and interesting from page one to the end, which is very rare Denise Vega deserves five stars!!!!!!

Recommends it for: Everyone with friendship problems
Have you ever told one person something from your diary and then regretted it? Well, I have, and I thought I had the worst until I read "Click Here (to find out how I survived seventh grade)" There was one girl at school (very unpopular) that had lots of friendship problems and to make it worse her WHOLE diary got posted in the school newspaper which everybody reads! I would really recommend this book because it has feelings in it and friendship problems that I went through.

I thought this book would be weak, but it wasn't. Not to me, anyway.

Forgive me, review readers, but the best way for me to enjoy a book and to properly connect with one is if it has a character or situation that I can relate with.

Believe it or not, pretty much the same exact same thing Erin went through in this book happened to me.

I was in 7th grade. I had a best friend who became very close with a mean girl at school. No one liked this girl because though she was very intelligent (one of numer
Click Here is a cute and enjoyable read, even though several elements of the story felt a bit contrived. Maybe it's because I didn't get bullied in middle school? Maybe it's because I wasn't a bully in middle school? Couldn't tell you.

The Good Bits:

*a short and easy read. I read the whole thing within a twenty-four hour period. It's short, the writing's simple, doesn't require too much from your brain.

*the sentiments, if not the events, are relatable. Even though I'm reading this as a college
Ah, seventh grade. Best known as the period during which beautiful, smart, confident children suddenly become awkward, self-conscious not-children-but-not-adults. Life suddenly produces all sorts of new pressures and expectations from parents, teachers, and friends. Kids quickly learn the meaning of unrequited love, and bullying takes on a whole new level. Seventh grade’s reputation is so bad I’ve actually met two different pro-school people who’ve made an exception for junior high or middle sch ...more
