...And that's when it fell off in my hand - Louise Rennison


Gritty realism? Not for Louise Rennison - no teenage pregnancies (although interestingly Rennison herself became pregnant at a young age) or gun crime or sex or drugs in her books, though there is some rock 'n' roll. Which is great, espically when mixed with sly jokes and mad characters. But, more seriously, there is nobody working class or (apparently) any ethnic minorities, which makes this alternative universe a little too alternative.
