Hilarious book about a boy coping with puberty, family break-ups, friends, enemies and girls - all recorded in a journal that he has to keep if he wants the Xbox that is rightly his!

According to his tyrannical teacher (and much to his parents' horror), 11-year-old Andy Flegg is a reluctant writer.  So that's how he finds himself forced to write in a journal every day until his next birthday if he wants to get the Xbox that his parents had already promised him. That's a ridiculous number of Xboxless days! But somehow this writing thing seems to grow on Andy and he soon finds himself revealing all too much!
