Fifteen-year-old Josh fantasises about becoming a death metal guitarist complete with tattoos, piercings and hoards of adoring fans. But it’s not easy when his super-strict mom won’t let him grow his hair! Luckily Josh has a way of coping with life’s setbacks; it’s only a diary, but it contains all Josh’s hopes, dreams and frustrations (not to mention some great ideas for band names and lyrics!). There’s a lot he wants to get done before his 16th birthday, but things never turn out quite like he plans… What Josh doesn’t know is that his mother also kept a diary, back about the time he was born, and a secret in there holds the key to Josh’s life becoming a whole lot more metal. Half My Facebook Friends Are Ferrets is part of The Reading Agency's Summer Reading Challenge 2014.
""...a little gem of a book. It's an updated Adrian Mole, perfect for fans of Boys Don't Knit by T.S. Easton and the Kelly Ann series by Liz Rettig. I hope there's a sequel in the works as I'd love to know what happens to Josh when he hits college - my guess is that it'll be like The Inbetweeners with ferrets. Fingers crossed we'll find out!" - Wondrous Reads" - Wondrous Reads
