This is the humorous story of the life of Maisy Malone a seventeen year old teenager with a mind of her own, and a chaotic family life; her parents have separated, her brother drives her nuts, and now her friend fancies her brother, she's only got her dog to keep her going. Her father likes a drink, and her mother lives in her own world, yet despite all this Maisy keeps the family going as best she can with humour, sarcasm and a good deal of ingenuity.

This is a really insightful and humorous look at Maisy's life. The author has created well rounded characters, and the story keeps flowing along with a great deal of wit, and that had me laughing out loud in parts.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I would certainly recommend it to others, and I look forward to reading much more of this author's work.

Maisy is up against it - her family are driving her to distraction and life seems to be passing her by. But she responds with courage and humour, and a warmth that will appeal to anyone who's ever had to deal with the rough edges of life. A fresh new voice for older teens - Adrian Mole with bite.

Being an old adult I have never read any young adult literature (the genre didn't even exist when I was a YA) but one of the good things about Kindle is that low prices mean you can venture into areas of literature that you normally wouldn't think of. I was tempted to read this one because I have very little contact with teenagers, hardly ever watch anything on BBC3 and wanted to take a peek into 'young adult' life.
The story bowls along with verve and vigour. Refreshingly, and unlike many of the novels uploaded onto Amazon these days, it is also well-written from a language point of view. At the same time the author appears to be comfortable with blogese and the teenage style of banter; I don't know how old Ainsworth is but she does a convincing job of ventriloquising a seventeen-year-old. The characters are endearing, even if some of them are more in the style of Daisy and Onslow in Keeping Up Appearances, and on a more serious note, the action takes in some actual news events, such as the 2011 riots. A comical and captivating read.

Well Eve, I didn't realise you were such a good writer. I bought the book because I know Eve and was intrigued as to what she would write about. The parallels with real life and the way she weaves this into fiction are amazing. Almost every page of the book will leave you thinking - Yep, I know someone like that or maybe even worse - Good grief, that could be me! For any teenage girl this book will make you realise you aren't the only person in life that crap happens to. For every mother - this is what your daughter is up to. For the rest of the family - well read it yourselves and find out.

Teenage is probably the hardest time of anyone's life, so it's just as well to have the kind of wry humour that Maisie shows. Her struggles with life (and her hilarious but grim family) are a lot of fun, but will really get you sympathising and rooting for her.

Maisy is seventeen, out of school, out of money and apparently out of luck. Her mother has left the house, her father is present only in drunken spirit and her dog is always ill. And then life manages to take a seeming downswing; with the return of her detested brother. But with caustic wit and perseverance, Maisy holds it together through a series of revelations to find family redemption and a future that is beginning to glow. A lovely, warm-hearted parable of modern times for young adults, resting on the certainty that things are rarely as bleak as you might think.

The Malone family are driving Maisy to distraction, so, Maisy, a very modern girl, reveals all in her hugely entertaining blog. Witty and insightful in a way that reminds me of Adrian Mole, Eve Ainsworth's debut novel is a fast-moving yet warm-hearted read.

I was lucky enough to read this when Eve was first writing Maisy. Brilliant character and great writing. Eve Ainsworth does great comedy and her style and social observations are priceless. No wonder her next book, Seven Days, has been snapped up by Scholastic, due out next year. Meanwhile we have Maisy, her whacky family and one very smelly dog to keep us entertained.
