Read in January, 2012

Sex never sounded less appealing. Puberty Blues is unstructured, essentially non-fiction and more like a diary than a novel. It's an awkward, straight re-telling of the authors' upbringing in Sydney's infamous "Shire". Puberty has always interested me; it's when our emotions are at their most tender and intense, and we begin to dabble in the things that will later become our excesses. Boys, girls, drugs, music, heartbreak - toes dipped in lakes. I've explored it on my own albums Macquarie Centre and Primary School Disco, and in a Sydney setting too. But I would never have thought of an ending as abrupt, as shocking as what they've done here, especially since it's true.
