about

Rachel Riley is the offspring of a depressingly unbroken home. Her mum and dad refuse to let her have a mobile phone, and have banned Ribena (too purple) and Eastenders (too common); her seven-year-old brother buys giant Des Lynam cut-outs and Will Young dolls from ebay and talks in Elvish;and the adopted dog eats her Pride and Prejudice boxed collection. It is time to change things. Rachel resolves that this year she will become tragic, literary and interesting - and will win the heart of Justin, the lead guitarist from Certain Death, along the way.Laugh-out-loud funny from beginning to end, this is a fresh new voice which will speak directly to teenagers everywhere. If Bridget Jones had kept a diary when she was a teenager, it is unlikely to have been this funny!
Joanna Nadin is a successful author of young fiction.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from enh... It was good -- but not great. All characters (child, adult, elderly) seemed to fluctuate between insanely mature to ridiculously childish. Most events seemed realistic though. I prefer Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging, but this was still an interesting read.
