“A funny, touching and heartfelt novel dealing with the angst of growing up and being forced into roles you do not want. It acts as a prequel to Rettig’s My Desperate Love Diary which has been so successful, and here’s Rettig with another winner and another outing for her delightful heroine, Kelly Ann.

“As to be expected there is lots of pink girly-twirly fiction coming which is why I appreciated Liz Rettig’s My Dating Disasters Diary (Corgi), her anti-heroine Kelly Ann adds a touch of acid to the sugar and her take on the world will be much appreciated by girls who don’t want to conform to the standard pattern – good for Kelly Ann!”

“In the mood to rock with laughter, to hoot with glee and shake your head..? Buy a copy of My Dating Disasters Diary by Liz Rettig, narrated in first person by the tremendously likeable and flippant tomboy, Kelly Ann.”
My Favourite Books

My Dating Disasters Diary is vivid and fun right from page one. ”
Jill Murphy, The Bookbag

“This book is what I would describe as laugh out loud funny, and that’s not something I say lightly. It was funny in a sarcastic sort of way that represents teenager’s humour. This book will be loved by Louise Rennison fans.”
