You’ve Got a Friend

The Borneo Post - Good English - - Short Story Section -

Judi Curtin takes her young pro­tag­o­nists Beth and Molly back in time again in this new book, to 1975 to be pre­cise. It’s a to­tal cul­ture shock – the two girls know noth­ing of Chop­per bikes, the Bay City Rollers, Jackie magazine or the So­daStream, though it’s hard­est for them to un­der­stand the strange mis­con­cep­tions about women and their abil­i­ties, which ev­ery­one seems to ac­cept as nor­mal.

For read­ers who aren’t fa­mil­iar with this ex­cel­lent se­ries, Molly and Beth are best friends and lat­terly step-sis­ters: Beth’s dad is now mar­ried to Molly’s mum.
