The brilliantly funny and cringe-worthy secret blog of 14-year-old Joe Cowley (wannabe comic artist and self-confessed repeller of girls): Sunday 1st January So here's the thing. I've decided to start writing a blog. A private one. The idea is that it'll help me sort my life out, because quite frankly, it can't get much worse ...* I gained the nickname Puke Skywalker after vomiting over Louise Bentley on the waltzer. * I am subjected to daily wedgies by my arch-enemy Gav James. * My so-called best mates are trying to get me killed in a bid to win GBP250 on You've Been Framed. This cannot go on. I have to do something, or I'll end up like Mad Morris down the park who thinks he's Jesus. By the end of next term, I'm going to be a completely different person. At least, that's the theory...

About Ben Davis

Despite possessing a name that is ripe for mockery, Ben Davis survived high school and went on to study English at University, which was quite easy because he was already fluent in that. Since then, he has written jokes for everything from radio shows to greeting cards and fulfilled a lifelong ambition by writing books for young adults. The Private Blog of Joe Cowley is his first novel. He now lives in Tamworth with his wife and his wimpy dog.

Review quote

'I loved reading this. It's Adrian Mole meets Wimpy Kid, with the right mix of cringe-worthy and funny moments thrown in together...' * Nikki Heath, The School Librarian Journal *
