2.0 out of 5 stars are better books in this genre out there, 14 Jan. 2006
This review is from: It's Different for Girls (Paperback)
I bought this book on a whim, had vaguely heard of Jo's first book. Turned out to be an ok read but I felt Ms Brand was floundering in places, the 70's with their punk-rock scene seemed a bit contrived (if you want a far superior example of 70's punk-rock anarchism try The Glass Mountain by Martina Evans) and even the ending and chapters all seemed *contrived*. I could see what was going to happen, ie Rachel's mother have an affair, Susan eventually get bored with her sensible boyfriend etc... It was a nice calm read and full of facts on Hastings but not what I would have expected from someone of Ms Brand's calibre. Disappointing but I suspect teenagers will like this.
