The Diary of Pelly D – L. J. Adlington

The Diary of Pelly D

Toni V is a teenager working for the City Five demolition crew. While drilling through concrete he unearths a parcel wrapped in faded brown paper. Toni V smuggles the package back to his room, unwraps it, and finds a notebook.

This is the diary of Pelly D. It’s totally secret, so if you’re reading it I hate you already.

Toni V figures there’s no harm in paging through it since he doesn’t even know this Pelly D.

The more Toni V reads, he can’t help starting to care for her, especially as her words slowly reveal the chilling state of her world.

I know it doesn’t matter what gene tag you have -It’s just . . . How can I face everyone at school if . . .

What happened to Pelly D? Toni V needs to know. And he has one clue: Dig — dig everywhere.

This book was good, though, it was realistically depressing at the end. Very good, but if you want something light, try something else. Pelly sucks you right into her world. Being able to see what happened after she was gone…from Tony V’s point of view is very neat and really revealing. Recommended for High Schoolers. – Jessica, Teen Librarian
