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

Back cover copy

There's G. Isn't he gorgeous? I think he just looked at me - well he looked in my direction anyway. Do you think he'd ask me out if I dyed my hair and got breast implants? KELLY ANN I think you need brain implants, Kelly Ann, then maybe you'd see what a complete idiot G is. STEPHANIE Stephanie's right. OK, G's not ugly but he's SO up himself! You'd be much better off with Chris. He's gorgeous and crazy about you, if only you'd open your eyes . . . LIZ Don't be stupid! Chris is a good friend but that's it. I'd rather snog my brother (if I had one). Now be serious, how do I get G to notice me? A blonde wig and a Wonderbra?show more
