My So-Called Life (Rachel Riley Diaries 1) by Joanna Nadin
Why is life never like it is in books? Nothing interesting ever happens to me. I am not adopted, my parents are not alcoholics or drug addicts, and I don't live on a council estate. Even my name sucks. In other words, my life is earth-shatteringly normal. This cannot go on. Something deep and life-changing has to happen... and sometime about now would be good. Join Rachel as she sets out to make her life more interesting, befriend exotic people, and win the heart of Justin Statham . . . all while channelling her own unique vintage Essex chic. Will she succeed in her quest for more tragedy in her life . . . or will it just be tragic. Not suitable for younger readers.
