And By The Way…

And By The WaySix months ago, I lost my mum to cancer and my dad, ‘The Rockstar’, to work. Now, I don’t do close. That way I won’t get hurt.

My friend Rachel won’t let give up on me. And that’s a problem.

So is David McFadden, a guy in my class who says he wants to help. Six months ago, he could have but didn’t. Now, it’s too late. The last person I’m going to listen to is David McFadden. When he calls me Ice Queen, I’ll show him just how right he is. READ MORE

And For Your Information…

My friends, Alex and Rachel are minted. My money runs out. All the time.

After Alex’s mum died, Rachel knew how to help. It made them closer. They don’t mean to leave me out. And I try not to mind.

I have a sort-of boyfriend. We don’t talk about the stuff that matters. But it’s better than nothing, right?

I’m not even going to talk about my family.

Shoplifting wasn’t exactly on my list of things to do before I die but it makes me feel amazing. In control. Until I’m caught. And my life, weirdly, begins. READ MORE

And Actually…

DD_AA_ECVRWhen I first met Alex and Sarah – in detention – they treated me like I was normal. A human being. They actually liked me – thought it took a while to trust that. I’ve never told them about my life before I met them. I wanted a new one. A fresh start.

Now, they think I’m the strong one, the one with all the answers, the guru. No clue why.

When I get a part in a TV drama it’s all my dreams come true. It’ll also bring me face-to-face with someone from my past. But I’m a different person now. And I’m sure Rebecca is too. No matter what, there’s no way I’m going to let my past destroy my future. READ MORE
