Zoella signed a two-book deal with Penguin and the first of these, a debut novel called Girl Online, is predicted to be the year’s fastest-seller when it is released on November 25 just in time for the Christmas market.
The story of a teenage girl who writes a blog about school, boys and her “mad” family is being published in 15 languages and is in Amazon’s top five best-selling children’s books on the strength of pre-orders alone.
“Zoella has this huge fan base. Girl Online will be the fastest-selling children’s book of the year, and I don’t see why it won’t challenge for the overall best-seller,” said Melissa Cox, children’s buyer at Waterstones.
