More About This Title It's Different for Girls


Hastings in the 70s is not the coolest place to be. As Rachel and Susan teeter on the brink of adolescence, they realize safety lies in numbers and the best chance of surviving their teens is by sticking together. Their friendship protects them against the trials of parents, classmates, bullies who harass them in school, aspiring guitar heroes, stoned hippies, and emotional neediness and weediness. But when Dave, local rock-star and general bad-boy, enters their lives, they discover that sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll aren't always everything they've dreamed of. And then Punk music detonates the status quo, and nothing will ever be the same again. This is a wonderfully funny and poignant novel about growing up in the 70s, the brittle nature of teenage friendship, and the tough twists and turns of emerging adulthood.
