Every day is an unhappy struggle for Pamela. She hopes and tries to win acceptance from her classmates but is constantly rejected. In an entertaining and readable way the author takes us through everyday examples – the dilemma of lunch breaks and what to be seen eating, how to dress when nothing fits or flatters, the inevitable cliques of ‘skinny’ girls who glance in her direction, giggling and laughing.
The quiet torment increases when boyfriends become a ‘thing’. Inevitably the other girls seem to have all the fun while Pamela can only fantasise and hope in vain. And, when she does strike up a relationship of sorts, she is unable to handle it.
At home there is little respite as her younger ‘normal’ sister despises her. She retreats to her bedroom and the company of her cuddly toys, the only ones that understand.
This is a sad tale, and brave in that it is semi-autobiographical. Young people the world over long to be part of the crowd. Pamela isn’t to know that each of her peers have their own insecurities; all she can see is her own situation. Each day brings hope and poignant despair for Pamela, and the reader’s heart goes out to her.
Maybe the only consolation is that each of us hopefully escape those years and find, as Pamela does, a measure of personal success and fulfillment.
