The Lovereading4Kids comment

February 2013 Debut of the Month

Hattie Moore’s diary will delight all those who already revel in the life of Louise Rennison’s Georgia Nicholson. Hattie’s life is a hilarious catalogue of typical teenage earth-shattering catastrophes most of which relate to Hattie’s inability to transform herself into a TOTAL HOTNESS GODDESS. Rae Earl captures the outrageous but nonetheless surprisingly loveable characteristics of this convincing teenage drama queen.

Lovereading4kids staff comment:

This is Hattie Moore’s diary of her inner-most private thoughts, so we are immediately plunged into her rollercoaster teenage world of flaky friendships, cringe-making family (her loathsome brother and ‘total mental’ Gran), schoolgirl crushes and her desire to be a TOTAL HOTNESS GODDESS. This book is a hilarious chronicle of her day-to-day disasters and anxieties. Hattie’s up close and personal diary is both funny and painful, and an ‘unputdownable’ read.

Synopsis

OMG! is This Actually My Life? Hattie Moore's Unbelievable Year! by Rae Earl

This is the OFFICIAL and TOTALLY MENTAL diary of Hattie Moore. Thirteen year-old Hattie Moore doesn't actually know who her dad is - but that's the least of her problems. Trying to embark on a mission to become a TOTAL HOTNESS GODDESS isn't easy when Miss Gorgeous Knickers at school hates her and NO ONE FANCIES HER. Things aren't helped by her family. Her unbelievably annoying older brother is threatening to reveal to the world everything embarrassing that has ever happened to her. She has a mum who just doesn't get her or why she might want to find out about her real dad and a gran who is a TOTAL mental and who may be texting rude jokes to just about EVERYONE in the world EVER. Including dentists.
