The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 ¾ by Sue Townsend

At thirteen years old, Adrian Mole has more than his fair share of problems – spots, ill-health, parents threatening to divorce, rejection of his poetry and much more – all recorded with brilliant humour in his diary.

Adrian Mole’s first love, Pandora, has left him; a neighbor, Mr. Lucas, appears to be seducing his mother (and what does that mean for his father?); the BBC refuses to publish his poetry; and his dog swallowed the tree off the Christmas cake. “Why” indeed.

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 3/4 is number 6 on our Top 10 Best-Ever UKYA Novels list.
