Review: Della says OMG by Keris Stainton

Della says OMG by Keris Stainton
Published by Orchard Books


Della’s over the moon when she kisses her long-standing crush at a party – but then she discovers her diary has disappeared...

When scans of embarrassing pages are sent to her mobile and appear on Facebook, Della’s distraught – how can she enjoy her first proper romance when someone, somewhere, knows all her deepest, darkest secrets?


***

I loved Della says OMG completely and devoured it in one sitting.

The thing for me that made this book so special was the way in which it portrayed Della and her friends. I loved how perfectly their teenage interactions were captured and how all those feelings of being a teen and going out there and finding that first love were so brilliantly shown.

Della is a brilliant character. She is has all those awkward teenage qualities of feeling like she doesn't fit in because of all those insecurities you carry round at the age of 17 but without realising that actually she is awesome. She speaks her mind and is just generally gorgeous inside and out which just comes out the page so well as you are following her story.

I loved the main premise of the story. Della finds that her diary has gone missing after a party and the person who stole it torments her with it by sending her pages containing her more personal and private thoughts which she is highly embarrassed about especially because she has just started a relationship with the oh-so gorgeous Dan.

All in all a fantastic summer read which I would highly recommend.

Glad you liked this one! I loved it, especially for the fact that some aspects of the book are rarely seen in YA.
