FIND YOUR TRIBE

Re­becca Spar­row The lit­tle black book of in­for­ma­tion that every teenage girl should read. Ev­ery­body knows high school can be tough. There are days when your favourite teacher tells you off. When the per­son you have a crush on fails to no­tice you even ex­ist. When your best friend be­haves more like your worst en­emy. And when even the C-grade net­ball team thinks you’d be a dead weight and have the de­fend­ing skills of a sta­pler. So how do you get through it? Laugh along with Bris­bane-based Re­becca Spar­row as she re­veals a few of her own less-thanshin­ing-high-school-mo­ments (like the time she ac­ci­den­tally set fire to her fake fin­ger­nails) but know that whether it’s find­ing your tribe, your class­room or your con­fi­dence, this lit­tle black book will be an in­valu­able guide. Univer­sity of Queens­land Press, $14.95
