In these eleven short stories, Budge Wilson, the popular author of Lorinda's Diary and Thirteen Never Changes , explores growing up in a colourful but imperfect world from a female point of view.

A pen pal halfway around the world, starting a diary, a favourite teacher's romance with metaphors, the intricacies of family relationships, a high school reunion, the bittersweet taste of first love are all fodder for stories that will be read over and over again, and to treasure for a lifetime.

One of my favorite books from when I was a teenager. The characters are so real and incredibly well written. A must read!
