Courtesy of Teens Read Too,
This review is from: Posh and Prejudice (Diary of a Chav) (Paperback)
Ms. Dent brings us another installment in the life of Shiraz Bailey Wood. Originally published in Great Britain as SLINGING THE BLING, the United States now gets more crazy adventures from Shiraz.
Shiraz gets her GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) results back. She can't believe her eyes when she reads her scores. Not only are they not bad, they're actually really good. So good, in fact, that she seriously has to consider continuing with her education into the sixth form at the new addition at Mayflower Academy. She decides she doesn't want to spend her life working at Mr. Yolk, so she signs up.
Her decision may just change the direction of her life.
Her newfound study habits force a rift between and her boyfriend, Wesley. She makes some new friends, some unexpected ones. And she is pursued by the hottest boy in her class, Joshua. But classes are hard, and she's put in charge of the Increase the Peace campaign. The campaign brings such promising press to Mayflower that Prince Charles is going to visit.
As with DIARY OF A CHAV, POSH AND PREJUDICE is an entertaining read. The glossary at the back of the book comes in handy, as there are far more slang words in this one than the first installment. But the situations that Shiraz finds her in are amusing and resolved in a manner fitting of a chav trying to step outside of her lot in life.
