Hello blog! It's the start of another term and there are three things that SUCK about my life: 1. I am STILL sharing a bedroom with my step-brother Gav (AKA Shrek's stinkier twin). 2. My mum is 6 months pregnant and therefore cabbage-kickingly MENTAL. 3. I'm about to have a high speed rail line (i.e. brace) installed in my gob! The only non-sucky thing is that I've got a GIRLFRIEND! A real one! Who actually wants to SNOG me!!! The problem is her dad officially HATES MY GUTS and is determined to make my life a LIVING HELL. Oh, and this smarmy loser called Seb is trying to steal her off me with his rubbish DJ skills. There's just one thing for it - me and my best mates Harry and Ad are going to have to enter the same DJ competition as Seb and WIN! What could POSSIBLY go wrong? The hilarious sequel to The Private Blog of Joe more

'As always, wherever Joe is, madness ensues, and nothing ever goes to plan.' * Nikki Heath, School Library Association * 'I laughed at Joe's "pain and humiliation" and recommend you do too.' * The Book-ish Variety * 'Wimpy Kid meets The Inbetweeners' * The Bookseller * 'There are a lot of twists in the book that the author has cleverly put in and it dramatically changes your view so quickly.' * Jay, age 13 * 'This book was incredibly funny, all the cringe-worthy situations Joe got into related to my age group which I really enjoyed!' * Alice, age 14 * 'This was a funny book that was a bit like the Diary of a Wimpy Kid but older.' * Simon, age 13 * 'This is one of the most humorous books I have ever read, a book that made me laugh out loud. *****5 STARS!' * Rose, age 14 * 'A brilliant amalgamation of theatre of embarrassment, with a sympathetic yet engaging lead, a realistic and entertaining narrative voice, and a full-on sense of humour.' * The Bookbag * 'Engaging . . . funny, believable' * We Love This Book * 'Translates the Wimpy formula for a teenage boy audience' * Bookseller *show more
