Kelly Ann is fifteen and desperately in love with G - the biggest idiot in school. Her best friends Liz and Stephanie can see how awful G is - and also that Kelly Ann's quietly gorgeous friend Chris is madly in love with her. But Kelly Ann stumbles along blindly, unable to see what's right in front of her eyes. Navigating her way through teenage embarrassments, sick-filled parties, awful love poetry and green condoms, Kelly Ann is a hilariously endearing character and one every female reader, whatever age, will be able to relate more

Our customer reviews

Kelly Ann is completely in love with the man of her dreams, whom she only refers to as \"G\". She\'s positive he also likes her. If only things were that easy. Kelly Ann\'s got a secret admirer, parents who are on the verge of a split, and a pregnant sister. Plus, high school! With the help of her friends, can she survive school and figure out her secret admirer\'s identity, as well as win the heart of the school\'s most notorious player? As reliable as your best girl friend, Ms. Rettig delivers yet another chick lit hit. Her protagonist is relateable, like a girl who lives just down the street, and the British lingo adds a quirky twist. The plot, though familiar, is still enjoyable as you laugh along with Kelly Ann as she struggles with first love and loss. Lighthearted and fun, MY DESPERATE LOVE DIARY is sure to please!show more
