Back cover copy

Don’t know why everyone is so dead keen on getting boyfriends. I’d rather play football with them – life’s so much simpler if you’re just mates. More fun too. KELLY ANN
Don’t be stupid, you can’t stay a virgin lips forever – people will think you’re weird. LIZ
Suppose. But no one fancies me anyway. Probably it’s the spots. Do you think if I got a face transplant they’d go away? KELLY ANN
Maybe try concealer first. I’m sure boys would fancy you if you’d just ditch your football boots for heels. STEPHANIE
Yeah and dye my hair, buy a whole new wardrobe, wax my legs and get breast implants. Who could be bothered with all that? Not me. Not ever. Now way… KELLY ANN

Review quote

"A funny, touching and heartfelt novel dealing with the angst of growing up and being forced into roles you do not want . . . I appreciated Liz Rettig's anti-heroine Kelly Ann, who adds a touch of acid to the sugar and her take on the world will be much appreciated by girls who don't want to conform to the standard pattern" * The Bookseller * "Vivid and fun right from page one" -- Jill Murphy * The Bookbag * "In the mood to rock with laughter, to hoot with glee and shake your head? Buy a copy of My Dating Disasters Diary by Liz Rettig, narrated in first person by the tremendously likeable and flippant tomboy, Kelly Ann" * My Favourite Books * "At least four girls in the appropriate age-group spotted me reading this book and asked if they could borrow it, so I don't think it would be unpopular" * The School Librarian * "This series is hilarious! It's funny, clever and is guaranteed to brighten even the worst of days" * Wondrous Reads *
