Upbeat and cute, but ghostwritten

This book is a happy, romantic teen fix. There is some questionable things things about safety online. The real problem I have with the book is that it was ghostwritten. There was a ghostwriter Zoella used to write this whole book. I know the scandal is old now, but I think to needs to be said.
