My Totally Secret Diary: Reality TV Nightmare is a quick read that will really appeal to younger readers who like their books to be a little more interactive. It's filled with eccentric characters, quirky drawings and real photographs depicting people and places mentioned in the story.

Cute illustrations, glittery cover. High school age character who acts 12. Perfect for 11 year old girls who want to read about older girls but whose parents won't let them.

My 8 year old daughter read this in one go (Dutch translation) and wanted to give 8 stars. So apparently she likes it a lot.
