This is Kathy Lette's first novel, written with her surfie chick friend Gabrielle Carey, when they were 18.

Written 20 years ago, Puberty Blues is the best-selling account of growing up in the 1970s that took Australia by storm and spawned an eponymous cult movie. Puberty Blues is about top chicks and surfie spunks and the kids who don't quite make the cut: it recreates with fascinating honesty a world where only the gang and the surf count. It's a hilarious and horrifying account of the way many teenagers live, and some of them die.

With forewords by Kylie Minogue and Germaine Greer.

    " Some things have changed. Hopefully girls are stronger and able to tell boys what they want eg surf, not have sex. But maybe I don't know. The chill factor is that these girls are around 13 and most are virgins who really don't know what they are involved in. Most shattering is the end of the book. Tis was the start of drug times, hard drugs. Maybe it's not really for teens, but maybe teens can learn from it. The language is very much of its time and I would imagine that overseas readers would have a lot of trouble understanding much of it. "
