The OMG Blog by Karen McCombie

the omg blog.


Four girls meet in detention and are encouraged to take part in a school blogging competition together. Ideas are few and far between but then they realise they have one BIG thing in common and the project is born – the ‘(O)ur (M) ums – (G)rrr’ Blog.

As they pour out frustrations and niggles online, the blog gets more and more popular.

But will the mums find them out?


How did I get the book? Received from publisher in exchange for an honest review

Genre: Contemporary

Previously reviewed:
Angels Next Door
The Girl Who Wasn’t There

Review: The OMG Blog also came at the perfect time; I’d had a really stressful few days and picking this book up was some much needed light relief in the middle of all of that.

Jessie, Shanice, Rose and Zarah all find their mums embarrassing. They love them but they just wish that they wouldn’t cause quite so many “grrr” moments. I’m holding my hand up here, I never had the parents in my teen’s scenario growing up so I have no personal experience to call on, but I can appreciate The OMG Blog without that. Being embarrassed by a situation/person outside of your control is pretty mortifying. Though to be fair to the girls mum’s they didn’t know.

The OMG Blog is quite contained so I was pleased that Karen McCombie created such rounded characters for the girls. As the reader I had a good idea of who everyone was, Jessie in particular, but also the other three girls and their mum’s.

This was a really enjoyable and quick read.
