First of all i have very strong feelings about this subject just thought you should know before i get started. Second of all let's get down the basic facts right. We have been told that Zoella got help writing her book. Let's start with what we know Zoella says about this subject:
So know we know as a fact that she got help but that does NOT mean that she had a ghostwriter! (this is also a fact Penguin have agreed on)
Am i the only one that would find it wired if she hadn't gotten any help?! Like she has never written a book before like of cause she needs help!
And let's not forget a very sad but true fact that there will always be bitches trying to drag other people down!
And if you are trying to drag Zoella down because she sold more books that the first Harry Potter then just think logical for a sec! No one knew of Harry Potter back then like of cause it took a while for people to find it!
But there was already about 3.000.000 that knew about Girl Online and many of those people were waiting to buy it from the day they heard about it!
Another fact is that the book's acknowledgements credit Siobhan Curham, an author, and Amy Alward, editorial director at Penguin, for being "with me every step of the way".
The thing is i don't understand why poeple say that Curham and Alward couldn't be with Zoella every step on the way WITOUT them being ghostwriters!
Penguin has said: "As publishers our role is, and always has been, to find the very best talents and help them tell their story and connect them with readers. Talented YouTube entrepreneurs such as Zoe are brilliant at understanding and entertaining their audience. For her first novel, Girl Online, Zoe has worked with an expert editorial team to help her bring to life her characters and experiences in a heartwarming and compelling story. We are delighted that Girl Online is engaging so many young people with the pleasure of reading. We are proud to have been able to help Zoe tell her story..."'
By this statement from Penguin i believe that we can conclude that yes she got help but it is entirely her story and her characters.
And if you look at any other book written by any other authors then who has not said that their book couldn't have come to life if not for certain people.
If you read it all i'm grateful and i would love to hear your opinion on this subject!
