If you happen to pick up this books - PLEASE don’t show it to anybody. It is totally PRIVATE. And quite disheartening.
It tells the tragical story of a helpless innocent person (me) trying to live an ordinary private life with a very DIFFICULT mother.
But how can you live an ordinary private life if your difficult mother invites a TV crew to come film in your house???
How are you supposed to keep that a secret from everyone at school???!
My Totally Secret Diary: Reality TV Nightmare is the second graphic novel-style diary of 11-year-old Polly.
I really loved the format of Reality TV Nightmare. The diary entries were interspersed will full colour doodles, photographs of Polly’s friends and pictures from her magazines. Even her writing had spelling mistakes and crossings out. A completely authentic tween diary.
I felt so sorry for poor Polly, though. The eccentric and really annoying Vanilla, yep, Vanilla, and Polly’s selfish, self-centred Mum made Polly’s life a misery. I don’t think I would have lasted as long as she did without snapping!
This is a short, sweet and very funny diary perfect for young teen or tween girls. Pure fun!
