Kelly Ann has only just come to her senses and realised that G, the boy she’s fancied all year, is a total nerd and Chris, the boy next door who’s been in love with her all year, is actually the man for her. But does that mean she’ll live happily ever after with Chris, discovering the joys of sex and smugly advising her friends in the ways of true love? Of course not. With the help of her faithful friends Liz and Steph, Kelly Ann manages to muck it all up and finds that the path of true love never runs smoothly! Can her relationship with Chris survive being found by his parents semiclothed in their living room on the day of his surprise birthday party? Or her wild girls’ holiday to the domain of the holiday rep, Faliraki? Can Kelly Ann get through all these crises and manage to singlehandedly look after her sister’s baby and the fake baby school have given her as a project too? A hilarious riot of teenage fumblings, terrible teachers and skincare made from porridge.

More embarrassingly funny revelations from the new queen of teen-lit!

“The sparkling sequel to last summer’s My Desperate Love Diary... a smart, funny look at love and sex that’s very easy to identify with.”
Becky Stradwick, Publishing News, May 3, 2006

“Awesome follow-up”, May 3, 2006

“This is an awesome follow up to last year’s Desperate Love Diary. Kelly Ann is now 16 and the book follows the traumatic life of this neurotic teenager. Hilariously funny, it will leave readers eagerly awaiting Rettig’s next teen masterpiece!”
Dan, Book Review for Windsor branch of Ottakar’s (now Waterstones), May 3, 2006
