Penny’s bags are packed.
When Noah invites Penny on his European music tour, she can’t wait to spend time with her rock-god-tastic boyfriend.
But, between Noah’s jam-packed schedule, less-than-welcoming bandmates and threatening messages from jealous fans, Penny wonders whether she’s really cut out for life on tour. She can’t help but miss her family, her best friend Elliot . . . and her blog, Girl Online.
Can Penny learn to balance life and love on the road, or will she lose everything in pursuit of the perfect summer?

After having read Girl Online, I already knew that I’d definitely have to read Girl Online On Tour. Not because I absolutely fell in love with the first book in this series but because many people said that the second book is a lot better than its predecessor. Girl Online had many flaws and some of them were still present in this book but it was definitely a lot better than the first book.
Just like the first book, GOOT was a very quick read and I managed to finish the book within a few hours. But it wasn’t very gripping and I didn’t feel like I just had to know what was going to happen next. It was just one of these books that are very easy to read and make you feel like you don’t have to think about anything at all and can forget about your real life for a second. You just read the book and suddenly you’re on the last page. There also weren’t any proper plot twists in this book and nothing that happened really surprised me.
Even though the female protagonist Penny was a year older in this book, she was still very childish and extremely naïve at some points of the novel. She literally just trusted everyone and any normal person would’ve realized that some of the people were just pretending to be nice and didn’t actually mean what they said. But Penny didn’t realize that and had to learn it the hard way. She also still was very clumsy, unrealistically clumsy in my eyes, but I have already criticized that in my review of Girl Online and I’m not going to talk about it again now.
But one positive thing when it comes to the characters was that Noah wasn’t as childish as he was in the first book. Finally, he acted a little more like an 18-year-old and I was honestly very glad about that.
I also really liked the writing style and I almost leaped for joy when I saw that there weren’t that many “OK”s in this book. Yes, there still were some of them and I would’ve preferred it if they had been changed to okay, but it was a lot better than it was in the first book and it didn’t drive me crazy anymore.
All in all, this was a nice and quick read that still had some flaws. But GOOT was a lot better than GO and so I just have to give it 4 out of 5 stars because I gave GO 3 stars. The Girl Online Series will probably never be one of my favorite book series in the world but I think I’m still gonna read the third book, Girl Online Going Solo. Even though Penny is quite an annoying main character, almost as annoying as America and Eadlyn in the Selection series, I’ve still grown fond of characters like Elliot, Noah or Alex, so I definitely won’t give up on this series and I’m hoping that GOGS will be even better than this book.
