The Lovereading4Kids comment
Humour, technology, friendship, a ferret called Ozzy - this book has got it all. Written in diary format there is plenty here to entertain teens with jokes, music, friendship circles and chaotic family life.
Kids love to read and so in addition to our Lovereading expert opinion some of our Lovereading4kids Reader Review Panel were also lucky enough to read and review this title. You can read their full reviews by clicking here.
Emily Passmore, age 12 - This is a really funny book, especially in the parts about ferrets!
Alice Horncastle, age 13 - This book unfolded with cracking pace, it is as if Josh is living, his story was so realistic and I could relate to it so well - I could not put it down!
Madi Campbell, age 13 - This is a very funny book which I would recommend to any teenager, it is an easy read with many hilarious factors. If you want a good read which isn't too challenging, then this is the book for you. Brilliantly hilarious!
Aimee Sweet, age 13 - This very funny book is great in a simple way: when I read it I thought that it actually was a teenagers diary. Very lifelike and realistic, this book will make you laugh, smile, and frown in disgust (in the best way possible).
Ben Evans, age 11 - I really enjoyed this book it’s really funny and it’s easy to read! My friends and I couldn’t stop to put it down!
Rosa Boran, age 14 - I really liked this book. It was really funny and a great read. It was lifelike, realistic and an easy read too if you don't want anything challenging. I'd recommend this to any teenager.
James Smart, age 13 - ‘Half My Facebook Friends are Ferrets’ is really funny, I laughed out loud several times. This book is more of a boy’s book but I think girls would still find funny.
Katie Evans, age 14 - Overall, I found this book really enjoyable and I would highly recommend it, especially to teenagers. I would happily read it again.
Edward Dunford, age 10 - This tome of staggering genius is definitely worth the time it takes to read; its continuous humour, chilling twists and epic characters really give a fascinating insight into a sixteen year old boy’s life while at the same time changing the way you think about getting older forever! Basically just...READ IT!!!!!
Half My Facebook Friends are Ferrets by J. A. Buckle
Fifteen-year-old Josh fantasises about becoming a death metal guitarist complete with tattoos, piercings and hoards of adoring fans. But it's not easy when his super-strict mom won't let him grow his hair! Luckily Josh has a way of coping with life's setbacks; it's only a diary, but it contains all Josh's hopes, dreams and frustrations (not to mention some great ideas for band names and lyrics!).
There's a lot he wants to get done before his 16th birthday, but things never turn out quite like he plans...What Josh doesn't know is that his mother also kept a diary, back about the time he was born, and a secret in there holds the key to Josh's life becoming a whole lot more metal.
