OMG! Is This Actually My Life?

Publisher: Walker Books

Fourteen-year-old Hattie is given a diary for Christmas, and when she is sent to her room for being sick in her step-father’s fish tank, she decides to use the diary to examine her life and sort it out. There is plenty to get sorted: she’d like to meet her real father because the family she has is a nightmare, and she needs to find out how to grow proper breasts and get a boyfriend. And although she has some really good friends, but she would like Miss Gorgeous Knickers at school to stop bullying her.

As Hattie's 'unbelievable year' unfolds, her diary charts what happens to her, following the trials and tribulations she faces as she aims to solve her problems. Humourous, perceptive and very well-observed, this entertaining and witty story is sure to prove popular with teenage girls.
