April 2013 Book of the Month When Remy starts dating Netherfield Park Rangers' Robbie Wilkins (not Premiership, but good for starters), it seems like all her dreams have come true. Or have they? Remy soon realizes that being a WAG isn't all it's cracked up to be, that Robbie's balls aren't quite so golden ... and that maybe there are greater dreams to pursue.

Synopsis

Don't Lie to Me, Robbie Wilkins by Michelle Gayle

Welcome to the hilarious diary of seventeen-and-a-half-year-old Remy Louise Bennet, NVQ, GCSE (Eng lang A), (Wannabe) WAG! Remy is fed up with her life. She's convinced that being a trainee beautician would be fine if it wasn't for Kara (aka the Feminazi) constantly looking down her nose at her. That living at home would be OK if she didn't have her warring parents to contend with (and if her elder sister Malibu wasn't quite such a boy-magnet). And that her social life would be a dream if only she could score a footballer. Then Remy does score a footballer: a hot one at that. But it turns out to be the start of a whole new set of troubles...
