No need to summarise this book because it’s all in the title/subtitle. Written in the early 1990s, before mobile phones and social media, it seems very dated now. The teenager in the book could have teenagers of her own. Im surprised at it still appearing on lists, unless the idea is to get todays kids to understand that their parents were not that different from them, despite not having modern technology. I quite enjoyed it for the nostalgia, and it’s sometimes amusing to see the different way that the mother and daughter record the same events in their diaires… but it wasn’t laugh-out-loud funny.
