It's Different for Girls

By Jo Brand

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Teenage kicks, seaside sex and soggy chips... the hilarious second novel from the Queen of Comedy, Jo Brand

A wonderfully funny and poignant novel about growing up in the seventies, teenage angst, growing pains and first love.
Rachel and Susan do not like to be beside the seaside. Hastings is so uncool. Plunging headfirst into the choppy waters of adolescence, they are determined to survive their teens by sticking together. It's a rollercoaster ride of nutty parents, randy language students, stoned hippies, all-night parties on the pier, and an amusement arcade of emotional neediness.

Biographical Notes

Jo Brand is a stand-up comic with many TV and radio shows to her name. She is married with two children and lives in South London.
