As per Stylist, series creator Lisa McGee said, 'I’m thrilled to be able to share our first ever official Derry Girls Book with the world.'

'Erin’s Diary was such a joy to write. I loved spending time with these characters again.'

'The book will reveal some new information about old events as well as some brand new antics from Erin and the gang – hopefully it will keep fans laughing until series three hits the screen.'

What to expect from the book

The book's descriptions on Amazon reads:

'Erin's Diary is a hilarious 'in world' publication that extends the laugh-out-loud humour of Derry Girls onto the page.'

'With Erin's inner take on everything that has happened so far, this book will both dive deeper into the events we have seen unfold on the screen and unveil brand new stories and never-before-revealed details about characters.'

'Complete with newspaper clippings, doodles, poetry, school reports, handwritten notes from her friends, and much much more, Erin's Diary is as warm, funny and brilliantly observed as the TV; a must-have for fans this Christmas.'

While as quoted by Stylist, the synopsis reads:

'Erin has troubles of her own, like the fact that the boy she’s in love with (actually in LOVE with) doesn’t know she exists.'

'Or that her Ma and Aunt Sarah make her include her weirdo cousin Orla in everything she does.'

It goes on, 'Or that head teacher Sister Michael refuses to acknowledge Erin as a literary genius.'

'Not to mention the fact that her second best friend has ALMOST had sex, whereas Erin’s never even kissed anyone yet.'

'These are Erin’s Troubles,' the synopsis finishes.

Erin's Diary drops this November 12th.
