Overview

135,789. That’s how many subscribers sixteen-year-old West Ryder has on his web vlog series. But he only has eyes for one of them.

As one of the internet’s most prestigious video bloggers, West talks about high school relationships under the name “Sam Green.” As far as he knows, no one from school, not even his best friend, Cat, has seen his videos. But the highlight of the whole thing is Harper Knight, who comments every day at exactly 2:02 in the afternoon. He doesn’t know anything about her aside from the occasional deep philosophical messaging on why pizza tastes so delicious, but as stupid as it sounds, he might be falling for her. So when they finally agree to meet in real life, West’s hope for romance seems more and more in reach. But that all changes as soon as he arrives at their meeting spot and sees Cat walking toward him, wearing the same “I <3 Sam Green” T-shirt Harper promised she'd have on.

To his alarm, West realizes he is falling in love with the best friend who has always been a sister to him.

I loved West and Cat's story. Typical teenagers and best friends falling in love.

Oh my goodness I absolutely LOVED this!! Amazingly cute story. I lost track of time and wiped my happy tears to see that the sun had come up and I'd spent the entire night reading! It's so funny and just adorable. If I could give this book ten more stars, I would!

There&rsquo;s West, a typical sixteen-year-old boy with a not-so-typical secret. He&rsquo;s got a bunch of YouTube subscribers on his secret vlog. West has a lot of family issues, so to rant and let it all out he records his videos. It&rsquo;s a type of therapy. Then there&rsquo;s Cat, West&rsquo;s best friend. And surprise, surprise, Cat&rsquo;s also &ldquo;Harper,&rdquo; the girl who&rsquo;s been commenting on West&rsquo;s vlogs every time at exactly 2:02&mdash;and the girl West&rsquo;s fallen in love with. This book had typical teenage drama. West&rsquo;s super shocked because his best friend is the girl he&rsquo;d fallen in love with. And he&rsquo;s super confused because he has feelings for Cat but doesn&rsquo;t want to lose her as a friend. This story was just teenage and love problems, plain and simple. The story didn&rsquo;t draw me in much and I really couldn&rsquo;t connect with the characters (although, go Cat for going after for what you want!), but it was a nice story. I did feel like West over-reacted to a lot of things and was really stubborn, but I&rsquo;ll make allowances for that considering at that age, I did that too. To be honest, most of the plot is in the description. That&rsquo;s pretty much all there is to it. I would have liked to know more about West&rsquo;s father. That part was left unresolved and it really irked me because I was really curious to learn the motives behind his actions. Cat was also left a little un-dimensional. I understand that this book was in West&rsquo;s point of view, but it would have been nice to know more about them. All in all, this was a nice book that was filled with regular teenage problems and love.

Click to Subscribe is a sweet story about a guy dealing with loss and learning how to move on. It's been six months since his mother passed (in a way that completely obliterates his relationship with his father) and he's still reeling over her loss and trying to figure out who he is with her gone.  Mom died six months ago, far enough into the past that I should be able to talk about her with a smile, with the months of pain turned to fond memories and rainbows, and her death just another memory. Keyword: Should. I loved L.M.'s wording here, and yet, having suffered quite a bit of loss myself, I also wanted to shake my head, grab West by the shoulders and shake him too, then yell that six months is not even CLOSE to where most could do something like that.  Perhaps the whole point of him not knowing this was because, in reality, there is minimal interaction with anyone aside from West's dad, Cat, and Harper. I feel that West was stuck in a horrible, lonely predicament, with no one to turn to, and even though his best friend, Cat, was the one he depended on, she really wasn't given the opportunity (from the reader's point of view) to help him cope. Sure, they have many a great interaction, especially at their favorite ice cream shop, but I would have liked more serious kinds of conversations just as much as their fun banters. (Which there were many of, and they made me laugh many times. For example: &quot;I'm glad you've come to your senses. I'd like a scoop of your finest vanilla ice cream,&quot; she says way too seriously, holding her head up high. &quot;In a kiddy cone, preferably. Also, with rainbow sprinkles.&quot; ) For West, vlogging was a way to cope with the sadness, a way to vent. In doing so, he meets a girl online named Harper, and begins to fall for her. 30% into this story, I thought I knew what was going to happen with that, but I suppose I'm one of those readers who gets too into things to see (what some readers have said was) the obvious. Yet, it wasn't to me, and I will say, I was quite surprised.  That leads me to the rest of the book. Big surprise, West finding out, then deciding what he's going to do about it. Without ruining anything, I get that he just wasn't ready for the kind of decision he was being asked to make, but at the same time, I really did want to bonk the guy on the head a couple of times. Then again, when you're stuck in that dark rut of sadness, you really can't see much. So maybe that's what L.M. was going for. Not to mention, as West said many times, the last thing he wanted was to lose someone else. Either way, Click to Subscribe was a fun read. You get a guy's perspective on loss, on friends, and on love while laughing out loud (I guarantee it) many times. I leave you with one more quote that made me laugh from an email Harper sends to West's vlogging identity, Sam (he'd just sent her a bunch of &quot;winky-faces&quot; in the previous email): Those winky-faces are making me shiver. I swear they're going to kill me in the middle of the night and make me into a delicious winky-face stew.

What a cute story! This was a great best friend romance story! It was fun read. This book had such great laugh out loud moments that it made me not want the book to end. And the best part? This book was SO not predicable! Being from the boys point of view, this made for an interesting angle. I really loved this story. It wasn&rsquo;t easy, it wasn&rsquo;t clean. But it was an amazing story and I loved it from start to finish. I can&rsquo;t begin to recommend this one enough! There are so many awkward moments where West has to figure out how he truly feels about Cat. He knows he has feelings for Harper, and he is best friends with Cat, but how does he combine the two? West and Cat are great characters and LM did an amazing job writing them and their story. Another great thing about Click to Subscribe? It was TRUE YA! Yep, every good thing you find in YA is in this book. It was so good and so worth a read&hellip;

Click to Subscribe was a really sweet story, but it also had a lot more depth than I anticipated. The synopsis really only clues you in to half the story. Yes, it is about a boy who falls for a regular commenter on his vlog. And yes, he finds out that this girl is actually his best friend, Cat. But, this happens in the first portion of the story and the real hook is finding out what happens next. Click to Subscribe is the cute and sweet story promised in the synopsis and on the cover. West and Cat were funny and so adorable. They've been best friends for their entire lives, and have the rapport to show for it. They have a lifetime of memories and love to show for it. There is also a lot of pain in West's life. His mom died a year ago in a drunk driving accident. His dad was the driver, and the relationship between West and his dad is understandably horrible. [Sidenote: I have to wonder, how is his dad not in jail? Or even still have custody of West?] So not only has West lost his mom, but essentially his father as well. Cat is the one person he loves that is still in his life. She is a fabulous person and friend. But what happens when your best friend falls in love with you? It seems like it would be great, yeah? I mean, I can speak for myself and say that falling and love and marrying my best friend is the best thing that happened to me. But, being that Cat is all that West has left, he has to wonder and worry what will happen if things don't work out? It is a very valid and reasonable worry and the author did an excellent job of conveying all of West's concerns over the matter. I could have gotten irritated with how hesitant and slow West is to make a decision, but I felt that it was authentic (or so I would think) to a teenage boy's mind. Especially one who's lost as much as West. Click to Subscribe was a very fast, fun (yes, I said it again) and thoughtful story. If you're looking for a great young adult story with a male point-of-view, I recommend it.

This was such a cute read. I just adored the relationship between Cat and West. Their banter was fun to read about and I caught myself laughing out loud several times. But there were also the times that I found myself hurting with Cat. I hated that she went through this all by herself it seems. To be honest, even though West was 'dealing' with this new proclamation of Cat being in love with him, I still thought he was very selfish. Everything that went on he turned on himself and was always worried about how it affected him. Even when he started realizing he had feelings for her that went beyond friends, he would quickly shut them down and focus on his needs and feelings. But even though I thought he was selfish through it all, I did like him. In fact, I think I would have thought the story unbelievable if he acted any other way. He does have a lot to deal with concerning his father and now finding out that his best friend is in love with him. So I gave him the benefit of the doubt. But what was great about it all was his feelings were not instant love when he finds out that Cat has been playing the role of Harper this entire time. I loved seeing West deal and try to accept her feelings but still try to stay 'just friends'. It is not an easy road and they do have a lot to work through. There is something though that I would have loved to have seen and that would have been Cat's POV played out in the book. I really think she had a lot to bring to the story. To be able to see how she felt and how it all affected her would have brought about more emotion too, I believe. I liked this girl and would have loved to have heard more of her 'voice' throughout the story. Even without her side of the story I still enjoyed this book. It was so cute and fun. CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE was such a great read and really quick too. I flew through the story and absolutely loved the flow of it all. It is a perfect YA read (with some minor language) that any one is sure to enjoy.

4.5 stars Aw, what a different read! It's outrageously funny (haven't read something like it), it transported me back to my nerdy teenage days, and was wonderfully written for a YA audience. L.M. Augustine was awesome with this book. I'm so glad I forced the author (totally kidding) to give me an early review copy. I'm buying it when it comes out. So, what's it about? I just can't get over how similar I used to be as a nerdy teen to West (main guy) and Cat (the girl). The thing is, yes, there was back n forth with West about his feelings for Cat and he was incredibly frustrating at times being an ass to her when she poured her heart out, but he was true to his self. I was embarrassed and petrified of screwing things up as a teen, too. So, I get him. I know this isn't meant to be a review of me, but author, L.M. Augustine just got me with this book. I connected instantly with it. Cat? Well she was a good contrast. She's West's perfect best friend, matching his silly, crazy banter, but she's also the strong one. Sorry, but West was a little weakling and he needed someone like her! Cat was strong and courageous enough to go for what she wanted.  However, I was sad that she wanted him so much when he didn't treat her as good, considering how close they are. She poured her heart out, the poor thing! The one major thing that would make me love this book more is if West learned earlier in his journey, thus making the first kiss happen wayyyy earlier. All in all, I'm excited I read this book. And even more excited to read more of the author's books. 4.5 stars
