Just For Clicks Reviews
I received a free ARC (advanced review copy) of this book in exchange for an honest review (thanks, Netgalley!) and I loved it so so so much that I read it in one day. There was a small pinch of minor swearing, and the main characters were secular teenagers so they weren't perfect (no one is though), but I loved the plot and characters and message so much that I can get past that.
Claire is ME. She can be so mature and wise at some times, and then other times she'll lock herself in her room for 2 ...more
Kara McDowell’s debut novel invites you into the midst of twin sisters Claire and Poppy, whose lives have been chronicled online since the day there were born. Their Mom, internationally known mommy blogger managed to build a brand by telling the world about her family – and as teens, Claire and Poppy have taken up the torch and have become famous vloggers. The only problem? Claire doesn’t want to be in the spotlight anymore. She craves a normal life away from the cameras, away from the prying e ...more
This was cute! I've been struggling with YA contemporary as of late, but I breezed right through Just For Clicks in just over 24 hours. I loved reading about the twins and how different they each felt about their lives as blogger legacies; one revelling in the spotlight, the other abhorring it.
Following Claire as she tries to figure out what she wants out of life, and how to get out of the life she's currently leading, was really interesting. Her YouTube fame added a fresh perspective, ...more

Claire and her twin sister, Poppy, are 'internet famous'. Every part of their lives have been blogged, photographed, and recorded by their fa...more
I received a copy of this book in a giveaway from the author. I also got approved by Netgalley at the same time😊
Just for Clicks is about 2 sisters who are popular on social media. This book is very important for teens to see how much they put on social media and how they open their lives for everyone to see. It also brings to the forefront how family doesn’t always mean blood. It hits on anxiety and shows how not everyone feels comfortable just going with the flow. It’s ok to just be you. I enjo ...more
“ For the first time in years, I’ve met someone who doesn’t see me as Claire Dixon: Internet Famous, and I’m determined to keep it that way. If last year taught me anything, it’s that some of my classmates view me through a constant “goals” filter, regardless of how unglamorous my life really is. Or they straight up hate me. It’s exhausting.”
This was an excellent debut novel. I would recommend to anyone who uses text or social media to communicate, mainly middle to high school aged girls. This ...more

This was really interesting! There were a couple of plot twists that I didn't see coming, which is nice. 😛 A couple of bad words, but overall very clean.
