The Secret Diary of Ashley Juergens is written by Ashley Juergens, the 13 year old younger sister of Amy Juergens, the main character in the ABC Family series The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Ashley has a great deal on her mind including her 15 year old sister's pregnancy (a souvenir from band camp), trouble in school (a result of pushing the dress code boundaries), her first crush (a boy she meets at the bus stop), and the rest of the drama that follows a 13 year old. For anyone that watches Secret Life, this book is a good summary of the earlier seasons with the twist that everything is from Ashley's perspective. For those of you that have not watched Secret Life, this book is an excellent introduction to the intricacies of the Juergens' family's life, told from the perspective of their younger teenage daughter.
