The Lovereading4Kids comment

In this, another brilliant installment of Rachel Riley’s hilarious diaries, join her in her no-nonsense, fact-based approach to life. Just when she thought she had finally found her knight in shining skinny jeans i.e. the ONE, an accidental snog with part-time rock god Justin Statham puts the skids on it. So enough is enough! It's time for Rachel to wake up and smell the coffee (or at least the hot chocolate) and forget about romance and fairytale happy endings. Rachel commits to concentrate only on cold hard facts from now on. Perhaps new grown-up-ness will even win the heart of fabulous older man . . . But nothing in Rachel’s life ever goes to plan or does it this time?


The Facts of Life by Joanna Nadin

Find out just how Rachel gets on with her no-nonsense, fact-based approach to life in this fabulous sixth instalment of her diaries.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

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.
