Description

My name is Rebecca Rafferty, and my mother has ruined my life. Again.

I didn't mind her writing boring books for grown-ups. But now she's written one about an awful girl my age and everyone thinks it's me!

Including the boy who delivers our newspapers, aka Paperboy, aka the most gorgeous boy in the whole world. Oh, the shame!

And if that wasn't awful enough, the biggest pain in my class wants to use my 'fame' to get herself on the reality show 'My Big Birthday Bash'.

I've just got to show everyone the REAL Rebecca. But how?

'Carey's teen voice is spot on ... the dialogue crackles with authenticity and dry humour'
- Mad About Books

'Adolescence is not a period fondly remembered by many but author Anna Carey has a knack of getting the details just right.'
- Irish Independent

'Publisher O'Brien Press has a reputation for discovering talented children's authors, and this is a very good debut novel: despite the familiar territory it is fresh and original and Carey has a distinctive voice.'
- Books for Keeps

'I love books like this, and they're always a welcome break from the more serious YA I read. If you're looking for an enjoyable, angst-ridden account of a 14-year-old's life, I think you've found the right book. It's well worth a read.'
- Wonderous Reads

'I laughed and squirmed my way through The Real Rebecca, the sparkling and spookily accurate diary of a Dublin teenager. It's stonkingly good and I haven't laughed so much since reading Louise Rennison. Teenage girls (and grown-up teens) will love Rebecca'
- Sarah Webb, author of the Ask Amy Green books
