Author Emma Lord has written a young adult novel called "When You Get the Chance," starring everyone's favourite social media platform, LiveJournal.

Nothing will get in the way of Millie Price’s dream of becoming a Broadway star. Not her lovable but super introverted dad, who raised Millie alone since she was a baby. Not her drama club rival, Oliver, who is the very definition of Simmering Romantic Tension. And not her “Millie Moods,” the feelings of intense emotion that threaten to overwhelm. Millie needs an ally. And when an accidentally left-open browser brings Millie to her dad’s embarrassingly moody LiveJournal from 2003, Millie knows just what to do―find her mom.

It is a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick and is recommended for ages 12-18, but we all know who's actually going to end up reading it.


ONTD, tell me about the LJs you creeped in your youth.
