About the Author
By 2008 Robb Peters had been keeping a diary for over ten years. He decided to share the first year of the diary, written between 1998 and 1999, when he was fourteen to fifteen years old. D.A Diary is a year in the life of a teenage boy and his friends. In Robb's opinion, D.A Diary might not be the most interesting book to some, but it is certainly the "funniest" Robb says, "D.A Diary is like Marmite, you either love it or hate it, but I can guarantee you have never read anything like it in your life (even if you're 94)" Enjoy reading about Robb's daily life in 1998 and 1999. Share in the life of a cheeky teen, laugh, cry and enjoy the rollercoaster of the first year of D.A Diary.

If you grew up in the 90's or even if you didn't and want to reminisce of being a teenager again then I would highly recommend this read, it will defiantly bring back some memories.
Great Job Robb, I hope you release other years soon.

D.A. Diary is unfiltered and largely unchanged from the original diary. In it, Peters is completely (and at times brutally) honest about his feelings. This makes for a hilarious but occasionally uncomfortable read. I often found myself laughing out loud or drawing in a quick breath at the thoughts and events that are detailed.
D.A. Diary will probably evoke memories of you're own life at this age, whether it was similar or vastly different to the one you read about. In my case, it made me think about who we are, how we change and the everyday events that help to shape us into the unique individuals that we become.
You will laugh. You might cringe. You won’t cry (unless it’s from laughing too much.).
Go on, flex a read. You’ll probably learn something.
An English teachers nightmare beautifully equipped with relentless typos, so you think, but actually the typical literary style of a teenager who has way more important things to do in his life than spell check...thankfully.
Let's get OFFSTED to put this on the curriculum next year!
You might keep flipping through the pages or read it from page to page and sometimes read parts over and over again because they are so stupid or funny.
Not for the serious reader,but actually perhaps it is as some people need to seriously lighten up,read this and you will have no problems in that field and if you are prudish, read it and your life will change.
If you were to describe this book as food I would say snack,junk and kebabs.
Fill ya bellies.
