This book I read in 3-4 days and considering it's pretty thick is a big accomplishment to me.

I'm a fan of teen/young adult fiction. I read a fair share of it and much of it is good. Unfornately, this wasn't one. A blurb on the cover declared it to be a cross between Bridget Jones's Diary and The Secret Diary of Adrain Mole, Aged 13-3/4. I've read both of those and this was nowhere near as funny and clever. Yes, teenagers are self-absorbed creatures, and that often adds to the humor, but this just wasn't all that funny. More repetitive and boring. Yawn.

This book started out as three stars for me, I admit it was rather slow goings in parts. But it's basically another british teen in the midst of teen angst writing a journal ( a la Georgia Nicholson) which I am a sucker for. And like the Georgia Nicholson series (by Louise Rennison), there were several moments I laughed out loud.

I remember this light read as being surprisingly funny and I would recommend it to anyone needing a few laughs.
