Ever been talked into buying a camel? Or become a burglar by mistake? Or accidentally drugged a friend on a blind date?
Keggie Carew has an unerring instinct for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, of putting her foot in it and making a hash of things. From the repercussions of a missing purse, to boiling a frog, or the holiday when the last thing you could possibly imagine happens, Keggie has been there. She also has an enviable talent for recycling awfulness and turning embarrassment into gold. In prose that will make you laugh, wince and curl your toes, Keggie Carew shares her most embarrassing, awkward, uncomfortable, funny, true, terrible and all-too-relatable moments.
You will be glad none of it happened to you.

The book starts well with some interesting tales, but eventually the persistently twee tone and (let's be blunt) snobbery gets on the nerves. The narration by a Joyce Grenfell sound-alike doesn't help. In one chapter Carew talks about imbibing a magic mushroom. The last chapter is so overblown I thought she must have written it under the influence of those funny fungi. "Diary of a Nobody" without the laughs. Carew may have previously written an award winning book but this is not it.
