Puberty Blues

(1979)
A novel by

 
 
Kathy Lette's first novel, written with her surfie chick friend Gabrielle Carey, when they were eighteen. Written twenty years ago, PUBERTY BLUES is the bestselling 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. Kathy Lette and Gabrielle Carey's insightful novel is as painfully true today as it ever was.
