Review

'Why is life never like it is in books? Nothing interesting ever happens to me. I am not adopted, my parents are not alcoholics or drug addicts, and I don't live on a council estate. Even my name sucks. In other words, my life is earth-shatteringly normal. This cannot go on. Something deep and life-changing has to happen...and sometime about now would be good.'

Rachel Riley is determined to make her so-called life more interesting - befriend exotic people, win the heart of Justin Statham, and refine her own unique brand of vintage Essex chic. This funny story with a lively heroine, told in diary format, will especially appeal to teenage girls.
