Love, Fifteen

Ros Asquith

Love, Fifteen - Jacket

About the book

This is the diary of a 15-year-old girl experiencing first love, first sexual experience - and then an accidental pregnancy. Characteristically, Ros Asquith tells the story with a mix of seriousness and frivolity. And it's not just about the pregnancy. This is the story of Amy (who longs to be a rock star); her best friends Lottie, Mad Alice and Debbie (also known as the band, Black Hole); her crazy home life with her dad (who's having an affair with the actress over the road), mum and a pair of chaotic little twin sisters; her school (also known as KFC or Broadmoor); her trip to the Glastonbury Festival - and - and - in other words, all the normal stuff of being a teenager. The UK has one of the highest incidences of teen pregnancy in the world. It's a non-stop media story. As with all Ros Asquith's previous books, she's researched the subject carefully and visited teenage mum groups. There will be a list of advice lines and websites at the back of the book.
