The Meaning Of Life

by Joanna Nadin

'new gen' - Great Fiction for Young Adults eBooks of the Month

LoveReading View on The Meaning Of Life

Laugh out loud funny from the first page, The Meaning of Life, will be devoured by teenagers and adults in equal measure just as the Diaries of Adrian Mole hit the spot for a different generation. A spot-on teenage voice with a sharp and witty eye for teenage emotions, so good it’s hard to believe it’s not written by a teenager. In fact, Joanna is a former political speech writer and adviser to Tony Blair! If you know someone who loves the novels by Sue Limb or Louise Rennison then you know they’ll love the teenage world of Rachel Riley and her friends and foes.

The Meaning Of Life Synopsis

I am ready for year of utter LOVE! It is official. I am going out with rock god and part-time meat mincer Justin Statham. Am certain that he is THE ONE and will prove it by having excellent relationship on every level. Oh no. What if he wants me to do it? Have only just got to grips with art of snogging so will need to get help fast. Or at least by 16th birthday. If it happens it needs to be earth-shattering and meaningful as it is, after all, the Meaning of Life. Thank goodness I have definitely found love of my life and am not hung up on Jack any more. Not at all.
