Humour, technology, friendship, a ferret called Ozzy - this book has got it all. Written in diary format there is plenty here to entertain teens with jokes, music, friendship circles and chaotic family life.
Fifteen-year-old Josh fantasises about becoming a death metal guitarist complete with tattoos, piercings and hoards of adoring fans. But it's not easy when his super-strict mom won't let him grow his hair! Luckily Josh has a way of coping with life's setbacks; it's only a diary, but it contains all Josh's hopes, dreams and frustrations (not to mention some great ideas for band names and lyrics!).
There's a lot he wants to get done before his 16th birthday, but things never turn out quite like he plans...What Josh doesn't know is that his mother also kept a diary, back about the time he was born, and a secret in there holds the key to Josh's life becoming a whole lot more metal.
