Product Description

Review

'Funnier, sadder and ruder than Adrian Mole, this will delight teenagers past and present' (Financial Times)

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)

The diaries based on author Rae's real life continue in excellent style (Heat)

Book Description

Now a major TV series for E4. Volume two of the bestselling diaries see Rae move into her all-important A-Level year.

I love Rae Earl. Well, she's shared three years of her intimate thoughts, passions, and fears with us. I have so enjoyed learning them, rooting for her all the way.

In this second volume of Rae's diaries, once again, the skillful editing of the adult author carries us fluently through her mind and story whilst perfectly preserving the feel of the angst-ridden scribblings of a sex-starved, obese teenager struggling with her mental health.

Somehow volume 2 of Rae's diaries is even more engaging and laugh-out-loud-funnier than volume 1. And this second volume brings us much more insight into the history and day-to-day experience of Rae's mental condition.

"God is after me and will kill me if I don't close the door 36 times."
... Wow.

Don't burn your diaries, Rae. You'll want those when you're eighty.

In our heads, even as grown ups, we retain some of the insecurities of our teenage years. We may look well adjusted in society but may still have obsessive thoughts about ourselves and others. This book, fairly different from the TV series, is a message of hope not just for anyone who has experienced mental health issues, but also for anyone who has ever suffered from self-doubt. Life does tend to get better. Well done Rae. What an inspiring woman. Read. This. Book.

I have never ever connected to a book or someone like I have to Rae Earl and her diaries. From start to finish I couldn't help but compare her downs to my own, the way she thinks, the way she views herself is me to a tee; and she's right, all we want is to love and be loved.

I feel I have a way to go but because of this fantastic woman I feel like I can be anything, do anything and maybe just maybe I can start letting others in and start showing me for who I really am.

I loved this book because there were so many parts that most people could relate to, even if their teens werent as troubled as Rae's. Her frequent references to the music of the time brought back lots of memories too. Brilliant!

I like reading books with comedy in them and I did like this and in some ways, preferred it to the first one. It's the same story, Rae thinks she's too fat, she's got mental health issues, she's pining over her fishy named best friend. There is a lot of focus on her weight. I know these are real diaries and I think if I had known Rae in real life, I would have found her hilarious.

I can't quite remember how or why a friend at work and myself got our hands on Rae Earl's first book. It was a massive flash back to growing up in a small town in Lincolnshire and waiting to get out of there (and being scared if I was capable of that). I found it hilarious, sad and wonderfully nostalgic. I remembered all those similar situations, nights out, the bullying, summer holidays, the friends, the crushes, the revision stress and the music. Then they made a tv programme out of the book I had told SO many friends to read! The second book of diaries did not disappoint. I was hooked. It made me realise that Rae really did something special by sharing these diaries. The second book leaves behind all the safety of school life. I have cried for her (I am a grown man!), I have laughed (actually almost wet myself at some bits) but I got to the end thinking GO RAE! She bloody did it! And so can you. Wonderful.

I found this book to be not too bad !! But I think that's also the problem because it didn't really catch my attention with anything, if you have seen the TV series that comes from these two books, then these books seem like a watered down version as they just not as exciting and Rae isn't as good

Darker than the original as Rae carries on in life, but every inch as funny and relatable. If you're looking for something like the TV adaptation, it's not going to make you happy. It's the very real (although abridged) account of a person with a mental illness.
