Poppet knows she's a lucky girl...she'll never ever know what it's like to be poor...But all the money in the world can't buy you true love...
My Review
I have read all the other books by this author in the 'diary of a chav' series and book 1 in this series, so had to read this one. As it's been quite a while since i read the other one it took a while for me to remember who everyone was, but i soon got into it. This book is very easy to read, good for a giggle and even a little tear in some places. Poppet is hiding her boyfriend, failing classes and generally 'running wild' according to the papers. She realises that life isn't always easy and money can't buy you love. As her mum tries to find a way to control Poppet's behaviour, Poppet really starts to think about her life. I liked the writing, it flows quickly, there isn't really much to the story but that's how it's meant to be, a nice light read, but saying that it does have a message to it. Being rich isn't everything, it's what you do with it and with your life that is important. 
I would definitely read any more in this series.

My Rating
I would give this book 6.5/10. Give it a go, I promise you will laugh.
