My Dating Disasters Diary by Liz Rettig


My Dating Disasters Diary by Liz Rettig

Kelly Ann is a total tomboy. She loves football and computer games and has no idea why anyone would want to bother with soppy romantic stuff and stupid crushes on boys. Her best mate is Chris, the boy next door, and he's not into that stuff either, is he? Follow Kelly Ann's ventures into the crazy world of love through her stonkingly funny diaries.


A funny, touching and heartfelt novel dealing with the angst of growing up and being forced into roles you do not want ... I appreciated Liz Rettig's anti-heroine Kelly Ann, who adds a touch of acid to the sugar and her take on the world will be much appreciated by girls who don't want to conform to the standard pattern The Bookseller Vivid and fun right from page one -- Jill Murphy The Bookbag In the mood to rock with laughter, to hoot with glee and shake your head?

It's funny, clever and is guaranteed to brighten even the worst of days Wondrous Reads
