LoveReading View on My (Not So) Simple Life

The further escapades of the engaging and immensely funny Rachel Riley - an Adrian Mole style character of today's teenage world.  Written in diary style, this book has all the necessary hallmarks to be a real page-turner.  Not just funny but genuinely laugh-out-loud funny, with every page ringing true and having you in stitches.  No teenager should miss it.  Definitely the heiress to Queen of Teen if not already the Queen of Teen.  To view the other titles featuring Rachel Riley and to find out more about the author, who once upon a time was a speechwriter for Tony Blair, then click here.

My (Not So) Simple Life Synopsis

Making a plan with Scarlet to deal with post-break-up trauma. We are going to channel anger into something positive and have new mission statement:

1. Not to moon about over exes but to embrace single life.

2. To stay away from all men (Sad Ed excepted as he is not actual man. He tried to disagree on this but was outnumbered).

3. To remain true to our friends, forsaking all others.

4. To remember that we alone are responsible for our own happiness. Scarlet is right. Life will be so much easier without the complications of love.

It will be utter Simple Life and am completely committed. Am starting tomorrow.
