Synopsis

Double or Quits Rachel Riley's Year of (almost) Taking Control by Joanna Nadin

All signs point to James being right. Davey is not Heathcliff. He is moron. Rachel Riley is taking control of her life and seizing the day! Can she be open-minded (and open-mouthed) and stay focused on her goal? Find out in this fantastic double edition featuring Back to Life and The Facts of Life. The stakes are getting higher - now it's double or quits time for Rachel! As predicted, James has been sent to his room to a) change and b) reflect on use of the word ho when referring to Mum, or indeed any woman.

'Nadin achieves the rare trick of producing a book that will make both adults and teenagers laugh aloud.' Observer
