The Time of My Life (Rachel Riley Diaries 7) by Joanna Nadin

Ta-dah! So, this is it, am finally going to shake off the shackles of my dull, suburban upbringing and venture out into the big, wide world. I foresee a life of tragic literary friends, vintage markets, and ironic tea parties. All I have to do is pass exams, get a place at uni, and persuade mum to let me go. Easy! It is totally the end of an era. Jack's moved on and so will I. Jack's history. Jack is no more. In fact, Jack who? I'm Rachel Riley - welcome to my so-called life. This fantastic, brand new story celebrates the final chapter in the hilarious Rachel Riley Diaries - it's the last hurrah!
