I bought this audio book years ago – back when it was still available on tape – and it has become one of my favourites since. I’ve actually listened to it so often that the tapes stretched and I had to re-buy it on audible.
This is a nice coming of age novel, covering all the basis: romance – I’ve harboured a crush on Jacob Coote since my first listening –, the search for social and cultural acceptance and new family relationships and skeletons. Though Josie’s self-righteousness can become a tad irritating on occasion, on the whole she’s a very likable character.
Marcella Russo does an excellent job of narrating the story.

The beginning of the story got me hooked and I was really glad because I wanted a contemporary book about teenage girls problem .. but as I reached the half it lost me .. and it kept losing me until the end .. the story was so pointless and didn't make any sense to me, there are some good quotes I can take from it but as far as the plot goes .. let's just say it wasn't my cup of tea
The story is very entertaining and quite nostalgic for 90s kids. But the reciter isn't quite so good at changing voices from different characters so sometimes you're left wondering who said which line.
