Should Popularity Be The Main Thing for Teenagers?

I am a fifteen year teenage girl and I found this book very upfront and thought provoking. I enjoyed the book immensely and thought the characters were realistic. Every girl or guy wants to be popular at some point in their high school years. But this book represents that not everything in the popular group is as fun and exciting as it seems to be. In this book it demonstrates how two girls who clearly wanted to be popular force themselves to change their behaviour in order to fit into the popular group. However, in the end they leave this group in order to be true to themselves. This saves them from a life that could have ended in tragedy.
I recommend this book.

Took you back to your teenage years

What made the experience of listening to Puberty Blues the most enjoyable?

Just brings back the teenager years even if we didn't all spend it at the beach. It was the same in the country.

What other book might you compare Puberty Blues to and why?

There is no other book that you could compare it to. It is totally Australian.

What does Rebecca Macauley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She puts in a heap of felling in to the audio. But at the same time I loved the book when I read it years ago.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It brought back all the memories of all the stuff we got up to as teenagers.

Any additional comments?

A truly Australian book.
