The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 3/4

Adrian MoleI picked up this 30th anniversary copy of Sue Townsend’s classic coming-of-age story starring Adrian Mole at my local Waterstone’s.  I can’t believe I hadn’t read it before!

Adrian takes us on a journey through the year and a quarter up to his fifteenth birthday, battling spots, winning over his first girlfriend and becoming an intellectual. The novel provides a perceptive insight into the life of the lower-middle class British in the 1980s, while remaining relevant today.

Very funny.  Buy it here.
