The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4 is the first book in Sue Townsend's brilliantly funny Adrian Mole series. Friday January 2nd I felt rotten today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still one of my favourites I first found this book in a used book shop 20+ years ago. I've read & re-read that copy so much I had to purchase a new one. This is the book that started my love of Sue Townsend. Hilarious. Laugh out loud funny!
