My Mad Fat Diary

I just found out about a very interesting series and I thought you might like it!: My Mad Fat Diary.

The plot:

Set in the mid-90s at the height of Cool Britannia, My Mad Fat Diary is a six-part drama based on Rae Earl’s real-life diaries. It takes a hilarious and honest look at teenage life through the eyes of Rae, a funny, music-mad 16 year old who, despite an eccentric mother, body image and mental health issues, has a huge lust for life and love. Rae is discharged from psychiatric hospital after months of treatment. Back in the real world, all she wants is to be a normal teenager, but when you’re secretly mad and your mother is hiding her new Tunisian boyfriend from immigration, it’s not that simple. Rae discovers her best friend Chloe is hanging out with a new gang, but will she be able to fit in with them?

Let me know what you think!

    • I’m sorry Pablo, but I don’t see your point. I think it’s great that a fat girl, ashamed or not, stars a series. It can show us a different point of view. And besides, she’s very clever and funny, you should give it a go!

  1. I think it’s great that the serie’s main character isn’t society’s prototype of beauty.I’m sure we can learn a lot with this serie.The serie look interesting and i think it can enjoy me. I must watch it.
