Stevee Taylor writes the blog and has won "Lammys", or Large Association of Movie Bloggers awards for best blog, best rating system, best awards coverage and more. And she's just 17 years old. The Dannevirke High School student spends 2 hours most nights writing the blog from her bedroom and more than 50 thousand people have viewed it.

Squids had been on an epic road trip... she was found on Waiheke Island almost 150km away from home.
