Don't Lie to Me, Robbie Wilkins Synopsis

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...
