Iris doesn't have a lot going for her. She's flat-chested, her mother's a loony, her father can't stop ranting and her brother's from another planet! Nothing ever seems to go right for her. 'Life can be a real bitch at times', she confides to her diary. She just wants to be like her friends: grown-up, sexy, streetwise.Iris's diary is full of all her 'private stuff'. It's a real character of disasters. It's also very funny. Her problems are heartfelt and real to her, but her account is so amusing and her predicaments so hilarious they will have you laughing out loud.Through Iris, the author lifts the lid on pre-teenage angst and attitude. It's a real eye-opener.
