Internet based books are hit or missed for me. Serafina was luckily amazing. I loved the main character's blog. She was easy to relate to and I loved all of the English references(Mostly Doctor Who!). Patch was such a dreamy boy and I love him. Serafina's other friends were epic and I know people that are just like them. The plot in the blog was easy to follow and was a sweet read. Day is an amazing author and I can't wait to read more from her. I highly recommend that you read this book! It is a cute and funny read that left me wanting more.

this book is very enjoyable and i had fun reading it. but their was one problem that i didnt like and that was the beggining. the beggining started out slow and it took me awhile to grasp the plot but after that it was a very enjoyable book for free time reading. the only other fault that i found with it is that since the whole book is written as a blog sometimes the details were left out by the author because it was stuff that you wouldnt put on a blog but that would have made the story more intiresting. but all in all this book is definitly worth buying. Grade: A-

I was...well, disappointed may put it mildly, by this book. I figured, hey, a book about blogging, how perfect for me! How wrong I was. This girl, taking on the identity of serafina67, blogs about her life. Her blog entries are filled with nothing but vain remarks, rudeness, and really bad spelling. She is a horrendous gossiper, and is mean to pretty much anyone she encounters. I guess it's true what they say--don't judge a book by its cover. It's true. I chose this book because it had a pretty eyecatching cover. Big mistake. I feel like a lot of potential was wasted. This could have been a pretty interesting book and an interesting blog, if the blog writer hadn't been an absolute spazz (of the bad kind). Upon finishing the book, I honestly felt as if I had just read a book entitled "Why You Should Not Give Your Personal Information Out Online" by Susie Day. The only thing that kept me reading the book was daisy13. The reveal at the end was pretty epic, and I guess I'd thought of every possibility (ranging from psychostalker to Crazy Pete) for "her" true identity.

Susie Day's SERAFINA67 *URGENTLY REQUIRES LIFE* is a hilarious and intimate peek about being a British teenage girl, which besides the weird slang is strikingly familiar to being an American teen. It takes place over approximately four months and is entirely composed of Serafina67's blog and accompanying comments. (Note: There is a glossary in the back with definitions to weird English slang. Don't be like me and discover it after you've finished reading.)

Serafina67 is a fifteen-year-old girl who lives with her mum and visits her dad on weekends. She has a witch under her skin that makes her act terribly sometimes and has made a resolution to be accomplished on April 22nd (blog starts on Christmas) to be happy. On the way, she is helped and hindered by her real and blog friends, Crazy Pete the therapist, her parents (and their significant others), and, of course, her blog.

It's hard to describe Serafina, because she's very full-fleshed and complicated. She can be bouncing off the walls and wonderfully excited about her VTN (Very Thrilling Novel) at the beginning of one day and feel fat, miserable, and prone to chocolate by mid-afternoon. And even when she's at her lowest, she finds humorous ways to unload it onto her readers. She often summarizes horrible events with hilarious but appropriate imaginary dialogue, but one of my favorite moments is when she doesn't feel up to posting and hence composes a blog post entirely in haiku and her friends comment accordingly.

This book reminded me a lot of Stephen Chbosky's epistolary novel THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, not only because of its content, but also because it feels almost interactive. As I read the posts and the character's reactions, I realized that the format was really cool because it's a mixture between first person (Serafina) and third person (various comments). It was also a neat blur between the privacy of a journal and the public-ness of the Internet. One of Serafina's friends, Georgia Darkly, finds her by Googling "mermaid" and "anorexia."

This is a really fun read and the author, Susie Day, touches on a lot of issues -- I won't call them teen issues, because teens don't have a monopoly on being unhappy even though it sometimes feels like it -- without getting motherly, moral, or "I've-been-there" about it. And I swear that you don't even have to be(en) a teen girl to enjoy it. This book applies to anyone who has ever thought the Parents are crazy, said something they shouldn't have, or just hates their life.

Told completely in blog form, SERAFINA67 *URGENTLY REQUIRES LIFE* tells the story of Serafina, a fifteen year old who's dealing with her parents divorce, her life seemingly threatening to unravel around her, not to mention the usual teen angst and the fact that she's suddenly attracting more people to her blog than she ever imagined, including one mysterious commenter she can't figure out their real identity.

I have to admit it took me quite awhile to get into the book. I'm not sure whether it was the blog format or the character of Serafina herself, that there was something about her that took awhile to get used to, maybe it was hard to figure her out for the first while. But by the halfway point, I really started to enjoy the book and Serafina's story.

Susie Day always wanted to be a writer. At the age of 8 she co-wrote a radio play entitled "Paperback Writer", based on the Beatles' song and inexplicably about a racehorse that really wanted to win the Grand National. Susie's first boo, Whump!... in which Bill falls 632 miles down a manhole, won the BBC Children's Fiction Prize. She lives in Oxford, UK.

This is such a great book: very funny but with serious issues underneath and wonderfully real characters. The whole dynamic of the blog and its commenters was SO believable, the voice was spot-on, and how could I not fall for a girl who, yes, worries about boys and her weight, but also writes VTNs (Very Thrilling Novels) and fantasizes about traveling with Doctor Who? Funny, sad, lovely and real
