March 2010 'new gen' Book of the Month title.

In this, another brilliant installment of Rachel Riley’s hilarious diaries, join her in her no-nonsense, fact-based approach to life. Just when she thought she had finally found her knight in shining skinny jeans i.e. the ONE, an accidental snog with part-time rock god Justin Statham puts the skids on it. So enough is enough! It's time for Rachel to wake up and smell the coffee (or at least the hot chocolate) and forget about romance and fairytale happy endings. Rachel commits to concentrate only on cold hard facts from now on. Perhaps new grown-up-ness will even win the heart of fabulous older man . . . But nothing in Rachel’s life ever goes to plan or does it this time?
