I've got all the Teenage Worrier books but this is the one I keep with me at all times.It's like having your own special friend always there to help you out AND m,ake you laugh. I would never go on a weekend or even a sleepover without it! I left it a friends house once and now she has bought all the books too. They are just so funny and real. Letty Chubb is such a wonderful charcter, so funny and nuts, and I feel I know her, like she was the sister I always wanted. This will cheer any teenage worrier up when they are down, even if only to skip through looking at the cartoons.

Format: Paperback
I picked up this book by chance in the shop at Newcastle airport just before a very long and boring flight, not thinking very much of it at the time. I was really VERY impressed! It's like some kind of autobiography! Ros Asquith pinned down the exact feelings of a normal, healthy teenage worrier (as we all are) living a normal, healthy life and depicted it exactly as the insane rollercoaster, stop-the-world-I-wanna-get-off rush of out of control emotions and raging hormones it is. Even the habit writing so much insanity in oddly-spelt short hand gives this book the charm and charisma which makes it a Bible for all the other Teenage Worriers in the world! Kudos, Miss Asquith! Definitely 5*

Maybe I'm mad, but this book made me laugh like a drain on every page. it is so true about all the stuff that worries you inyour teens and it is also very comforting as the heroine Letty Chubb (aged 15) has all sorts of crazty extra worries as well as all the ones you can relate to. The story is really really funny and clever too. I can't wait to read the other sin the series, like my best friend has been nagging me to for two years.Actually, one of the reasons I never got round to reading this is it was always taken out of the library, so eventually I bought it. Worth it as I think I am going to dip in and out of it for ever.

My review on this book is very positive. The only thing is I rented it out from the school library so I had a limited time to read it, I like it so much that I'm going to buy the 'Teenage worriers guide to lurve' and maybe even this book I've read. I think I've read some other books of hers before and they were very interesting and exciting as well. I'll definitely say she's my fave author and I'll look out for more of her books, but I would say that if you need a book for advice, a laugh and a exciting read, the Teenage worriers series is definitely a must. It has lots of different chapters on body worries, which would really help a proper teenage worrier and give them a good laugh at the same time. Other chapters include relaxation techniques and advice on what to do in your spare time. It tells you about pets and how they can help you to relax just by watching them, even if you just watched a couple of goldfish. It does a little intelligence test to see how clever you are, but some of us might cheat because the answers are on the opposite page. It's excellent if your feeling bored with nothing to do, you can just pick it up turn to any page and start reading because it's not the type of book you have to carry on reading from were you left off, it's fantastic. It also tells you a bit about the future and what to look out for, such as finance problems etc. This book has a kind of slang language, which I think is really cool {But I think only teenagers would only understand it} It has really funny topic pictures to go with the chapter your reading. This book is the best book ever, it has very very cool phases like 'is life just a pile of fishbones? Should that be the journey of the soul?Read more ›

Format: Paperback
I started reading this but gave up after a couple of pages. The way the girl speaks is just so irritating! For example Werld instead of World, Yuniverse instead of Universe, Nachur instead of Nature and that's just the first page! She also says Etck at the end of every other sentence which is so annoying. I just couldn't get into it because of the way it was written. I know it's supposed to be like that but I just hated the spelling!!
