My Life & Other CatastrophesPaperback - 2011
This is the diary of a year in the life of Erin Costello, ordinary teenage girl and drama queen. Erin is a hilariously unreliable narrator with an over-active imagination. Her parents split up, and she thinks its because her fathers had an affair with her teacher. She sees her mothers new boyfriend talking furtively on his phone, and decides hes a drug runner. Her little brother spends way too much time on his computer, and she thinks hes downloading porn. And this is all going on against the backdrop of the school musical, DRACULA ... with very funny and unexpected results.
