The Lovereading4Kids comment

The further escapades of the engaging and immensely funny Rachel Riley - an Adrian Mole style character of today's teenage world. Written in diary style, this book has all the necessary hallmarks to be a real page-turner. Not just funny but genuinely laugh-out-loud funny, with every page ringing true and having you in stitches. No teenager should miss it. Definitely the heiress to Queen of Teen if not already the Queen of Teen.

Making a plan with Scarlet to deal with post-break-up trauma. We are going to channel anger into something positive and have new mission statement:

It will be utter Simple Life and am completely committed. Am starting tomorrow.
