Far and away the most intelligently written, realistic portrayal of being 15. I read this as a teenager and years later can still read it utterly gripped. The characters are just so memorable. If you've ever felt like a misfit - or have a daughter who feels like one, give her this book. If you ever feel like your teenager is sneering at her family or telling lies - give this to her. If you ever want a reminder of how things seem from the other side - this book is for you, not just your daughter.
I have a degree in English Literature, and have read many lofty works - this book for teenagers remains one of my favourite books, and on re-reading it as an adult, it has not diminished in power. It's only competition is Izzy, Willy-Nilly - which is a book of such depth as you would never guess by the title!

I first read this when I was a teenager. I felt I could relate to the main character and her dysfunctional family. Years have passed, I am a mother now and when my daughter is a teenager I will give her my own copy of this book because on the whole, teenagers haven't really changed much. They still have the same needs, desires and insecurities, and reading this book made me realise that I was not alone.
