Alex, star of the teen diary novels The World According to Alex and The Last Word According to Alex, is back. In this latest offering Alex’s older sister, Daisy, is getting married. Typically, Alex’s diary charts the trials and tribulations of the wedding plans and the attendant embarrassment of chief bridesmaid duties.
For Better or Worse is mildly amusing. Lamb has a sharp eye for the comedy of situation and there are some good moments but overall they fail to lift the book out of the ordinary. Readers who enjoy this genre and have established empathy with Alex from previous books will no doubt be entertained.
