You wouldn't catch many people revealing their true teen thoughts. Hurray then for Rae Earl, who dug out her 1989 diary and published it in the raw. Hilarious and gut-wrenchingly familiar (In Style)
Very funny (Elle)
'Full of 80s nostalgia, this journal will make you laugh out loud' (Closer (four stars))
'Very funny - and sad' (Heat)
'Full of teenage logic, bad poetry and 80s nostalgia, Rae's frank and hilarious trip down memory lane stands out from the current surge of memoirs' (The London Paper)
This show actually is my mad fat diary. I have already pretty much lived this show, for real... Reminds you how rarely you see teenage girls on television doing anything other than looking sexy in short skirts, endlessly texting their friends about parties, or wailing "IT'S SO UNFAIR" when their parents won't buy them a car. (Caitlin Moran for The Times)
If Adrian Mole had a sister ....
Hysterically funny, touching real-life teenage diary from 1989, now a major new E4 drama.
