My Fat, Mad Teenage Diary (Rae Earl, #1) by Rae EarlAn alternate cover edition can be found here.
Its 1989 and Rae is a fat, boy-mad 17-year-old girl, living in Stamford, Lincolnshire with her mum and their deaf white cat in a council house with a mint off-green bath suite and a larder Rae cant keep away from. This is the hilarious and touching real-life diary she kept during that fateful year - with characters like her evil friend Bethany, Bethanys besotted boyfriend, and the boys from the grammar school up the road (who have code names like Haddock and Battered Sausage).
My Fat, Mad Teenage Diary evokes a vanished time when Charles and Di are still together, the Berlin wall is up, Kylie is expected to disappear from the charts at any moment and its £1 for a Snakebite and Black in the Vaults pub. My Fat, Mad Teenage Diary will appeal to anyone whos lived through the 1980s. But it will also strike a chord with anyone whos ever been a confused, lonely teenager who clashes with their mother, takes themselves VERY seriously and has no idea how hilarious they are.

The moving finale of the third season of the Channel 4 drama, which was broadcast tonight, saw Rae in hospital and struggling to cope with her illness. This is the most accurate portrayal of mental illness I've ever watched, there should be more like this, that's why it shouldn't end MMFD. My favourite thing about MMFD is that it shows you that recovery, although a slow and hard process, is possible and that's so important! MMFD is one of the best teen dramas, going to miss this show? I'm going to miss MMFD so much it's unreal?
