Synopsis

Back to Life by Joanna Nadin

Carpe diem i.e. seize the day! Which means utter experimenting as far as snogging is concerned. Am never going to find the ONE if just keep having accidental liaisons with Jack or ill-advised flirtations with Justin.

And open-armed. And possibly open-mouthed. Life, as they say, is what you make it.

And am definitely, no doubt about it, going to make mine fabulous. Starting now. Read the hilarious results of Rachel Riley's 'seize the day' philosophy in this fantastic fifth instalment of her diaries.

Reviews

[My So-Called Life]: 'Her keen eyed but naive observations on family relationships and life in a small town are as perceptive as they are hilarious and Rachel Riley proves to be the sharpest, funniest diarist since Adrian Mole. Slightly saucy in parts, this is definitely one for older readers (and a guilty pleasure for grown ups) Becky Stradwick, Publishing News Nadin achieves the rare trick of producing a book that will make both adults and teenagers laugh aloud. The Observer [The Life of Riley]: 'Rachel has an irresistible voice and her wry and naive observations of the world are instantly engaging. This sparkling sequel lives up to expectations and has genuine crossover appeal. The Bookseller [The Meaning of Life]: 'an absolute must-read Publishing News

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
