Now a major television series on Channel 10 starring Ashleigh Cummings, Brenna Harding and Claudia Karvan - this is the definitive Australian story of teenagers navigating the chaos of life.
The Text Publishing Company and Random House Australia are delighted to announce that they have combined forces to publish the iconic Puberty Blues by Gabrielle Carey and Kathy Lette.
'By day, we were at school learning logarithms, but by night - in the back of cars, under the bowling alley, on Cronulla Beach, or, if you were lucky, in a bed while someone's parents were out - you paid off your friendship ring.'
For Deb and Sue, life is about surfies, panel vans, straight-leg Levis, nicking off from school, getting wasted and fitting in.
But why should guys have all the fun?
Puberty Blues is raw, humorous and honest. An Australian classic.
'A profoundly moral story' -- Germaine Greer
'I don't recall reading Puberty Blues so much as devouring it. I was about thirteen, alone in my bedroom with the door firmly shut. I was fascinated' -- Kylie Minogue
