A mother's series of often very funny (and horribly correct) reports, first pubished in the Guardian, about life with her teenage Treasure - often open warfare with battlegrounds over the telephone, independence, boys, clothes, food and fairnes Teenagers and their parents seem to love it and it's great for re-reading. Try it alongside The, Book of the Banshee (Anne Fine) and Not Dressed Like That, You Don't (Yvonne Coppard) ... It offers a good model for pupils' own account of life on the Home Front.
