Book Description

16 Oct 2008 Diary of a Chav (Book 5)
After the nightmare that was Ibiza, Shiraz is overjoyed to be home in Goodmayes, back with her family, her friends...and Wesley of course. Wes and Sooz are finished and it's not long before he's a regular fixture round at 34 Thundersley Road - much to Diane Wood's delight. But Shiraz knows herself...and she knows that there's a big wide world out there, just waiting for the unique charms of SBW. Soon she's writing off for college applications and spending the rest of her time trailing after Carrie Draper, who's hellbent on infiltrating the celebrity circuit. Things get tricky when Shiraz ends up getting a job as PA to a Premier league footballer and his wife - Carrie had her heart set on it and she's furious, but how could Shiraz turn it down? She's not long into the job before Shizza realises that this celebrity lark isn't all it's cracked up to be...And at the end of the day, she really, really wants to be a writer. But what about Wesley? Can she really leave him behind for good?

More About the Author

Grace Dent is undeniably one of the hottest names in teen fiction right now. Put simply: no other author nails how young people REALLY speak and behave like Grace Dent. Grace is a comedy writer and broadcaster specialising in all aspects of 'Pop Culture'. She is a presenter on The Culture Show on BBC2 and has recently interviewed Mitchell and Webb and the cast of Gavin and Stacey. She lives in East London with her husband, who works in the music industry. When she's not writing comedy Grace is to be found 'faffing about on the internet' or 'faffing about in the garden or kitchen' or 'just 'faffing about generally. I'm an excellent faffer.'

Shiraz is back in Goodmayes, Essex, revisiting old friends in this, her sixth Chav Diary, and her life is about to get a tad darker ... We can't get enough of Shiraz's shenanigans ...we dare you not to laugh out loud!" (Mizz)

"...this book is hilariously honest and will have you chuckling from the beginning to end" (Hot Stars (Ok Magazine)) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 19 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
I bought Diary of a Chav:Trainers vs. Tiaras, when it first came out. I didnt really fancy it at the time but a few years later, four days before Christmas and I was going crazy locked in the house with my brother... I picked it up off the shelf
And fell in love.
This series of books is amazing in the way that Shiraz is such a believable, but interesting character. I love the way that Grace Dent writes, and like the way that Shiraz doesn't always understand things. The rest of the characters were funny and realistic too, and their lives all go down routes that discuss subjects like teenage pregnancy, racism, gangs, illegal immigration, etc.etc. But in a really interesting way that teenagers will find interesting and relatable. all the way through the books I constantly thought "I know a boy like that!"or Omg I know that girl!" (I have a friend just like Cava Sue, with a tiny bit of Kezia mixed in)

I thought that Keeping it Real was the perfect ending. I wont spoil the plot, but it's a twist. I've always wondered, do you think she meets up with Joshua? I love how Shiraz never really looses sight of what's important to her, even if she gets a bit lost sometimes.
Im so sad that a great series of books that craftily discuss the shades of grey in ordinary people's lives has come to an end.

Okay, enough gushing,
Babbette xxx
P.s. Diary of a snob was good too, in an opposite end of the spectrum thing. But Poppet's adventure wasnt as exciting as Shiraz's

I bought Keeping it Real in 2009, didn't want it to end, I can't put all six Diary of a Chav books, I'm not going to spoil it for anyone by saying what happened all I'm going to say is buy it, if you love Shiraz Bailey-Wood, you'll love Keeping it Real.
