Michelle Gayle’s trilogy, if which this is the third and finals one, addresses real-life concerns of teenagers including career, family relationships and romance. Written in a popular diary format with a sophisticated cover design, this is sassy summer escapism for teenagers. Funny and definitely a trilogy to get under the skin of teens.

reader reviewsWe asked some of our readers to review the first in this series, Don't Lie to Me Robbine Wilkins...here's a taster....'The book itself is well scripted and some parts really did make me burst out laughing.'

Synopsis

What's the Drama, Malibu Bennet? by Michelle Gayle

After humiliating herself when her derriere goes live on air, Remy has to work even harder to maintain her celebrity status, but is this what she really wants? The last in the series. Remy is struggling to balance her hectic career with her demanding family and to top it all off, she has just humiliated herself on national TV. It is time for her to take stock of what is important and how far she will go to keep other people happy - just what can she sacrifice before she loses herself and the real Remy that we know and love.

This is her third novel in the trilogy which includes Don’t Lie to Me, Robbie Wilkins and Say You Love Me, Stevie C.

'Fun, well-written and perfect summer reading for teens.' (Natasha Harding, The Sun)

'A fun and light read for anyone who's ever dreamed of a glitzier lifestyle.' (Chicklish blog)
