*First up, sorry for the no-posts, I've just been really busy lately and didn't have time to upload my reviews. But here they are anyhow...*

My nineteenth review for the BBC is The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole (aged 13 3/4).

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole (Aged 13 3/4) is a book about a boy called Adrian who is forced to live through the fierce reality of being a teenager. Three things wrong with Adrian's life:

1. Spots! That massive one that lives on the centre of his chin. Honestly, it's like he's built a 'Spot' estate and invited all his spot friends over for a housewarming party!! And they're MUTANT! Big and yellow and puffy! Maybe that's what put Pandora off...

2. Pandora! The new girl! Taken by Adrian's best mate. Also taken Adrian's heart, which can't really be good for a newly-made teenager.

3. Parents! Acting weirdly, seeing other married couples for comfort; something must be wrong. But then again, it's normal to get divorced these days. Wait. Divorced? They said they were just parting for a little while... They must be stopped!!

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole was rather funny, though I think it didn't reflect on the real agonies of being a teenager. The situations in the book was right for my age category, but I don't think it was written in the style for the purpose, and would therefore be more suitable for a younger age. So I will recommend it for ages 11+ and rate it a 6/10. It was good as a quick read, though.
