My Now or Never Diary
Kelly Ann has only just come to her senses and realised that G, the boy she's fancied all year, is a total nerd and Chris, the boy next door who's been in love with her all year, is actually the man for her. But does that mean she'll live happily ever after with Chris, discovering the joys of sex and smugly advising her friends in the ways of true love? Of course not. With the help of her faithful friends Liz and Steph, Kelly Ann manages to muck it all up and finds that the path of true love never runs smoothly! Can her relationship with Chris survive being found by his parents semiclothed in their living room on the day of his surprise birthday party? Or her wild girls' holiday to the domain of the holiday rep, Faliraki? Can Kelly Ann get through all these crises and manage to singlehandedly look after her sister's baby and the fake baby school have given her as a project too? A hilarious riot of teenage fumblings, terrible teachers and skincare made from porridge.

Our customer reviews
School. Family. Boys. What do they all have in common? Well, if you\'re a teenager, you\'re probably familiar with it. It\'s called drama. Yes, it may be haunting your life, but chances are, it can\'t be any worse than that of Kelly Ann\'s. Author Liz Rettig captures her audiences\' attentions once again with her witty and dramatic character, Kelly Ann. Since her debut, Kelly Ann and her boyfriend/childhood playmate, Chris, are one hot item. However, things go haywire when Chris wants to take their relationship to the next level. Kelly Ann is not ready, especially after hearing that Chris may be the father of his ex-girlfriend\'s child. She feels like Chris cannot be trusted and that their romance must end. Oh, and don\'t forget - on top of these relationship issues, Kelly Ann must deal with overprotective parents, an emotional sister, and the influence of friends. Talk about stress. Chris and Kelly Ann\'s split sends the two in opposite directions. Chris moves into an apartment and studies medicine at Glasgow University. Kelly Ann stays back to complete a sixth year, as her exam scores weren\'t impressive. Both situations bring about new romances and lifestyles. What will the future hold for these lifelong friends who obviously still hold special places in each other\'s hearts? MY NOW OR NEVER DIARY is hysterical. I was literally laughing out loud after just a few paragraphs. The text is conversational and the story hard to put down. If you\'ve read any of the books in Louise Rennison\'s CONFESSIONS OF GEORGIA NICOLSON series, you are going to love this book and the three others starring Kelly Ann. But trust me on this - definitely make sure that you abide by the age recommendation!show moreby TeensReadToo
