- About the Author
This book is for teenagers from 11 to 81.
It is a story about love, lust and lechery, all happening in the pressing space of six-and-a-half weeks (but as this is a family book, we shall not say where or how it’s pressing.)
Lee Mui Ee is the Ice Cream Girl. Tom D’Cruz, the Dashing Athletic Hero. Yeo Chung Kai is Mr Outstandingly Average while Sissy Song and Loo Kok Sean are the Princess of PJC and the Aspiring College Cassanova respectively.
Who will melt the Ice Cream Girl?
Who or what will sort out the mess?
Will it be:
The Teenage Textbook
Dr E. Supramaniam MA (East Anglia), PhD (Calcutta)
Toh Paik Choo, the editors of Female magazine and Mills & Boon?
The answers to these and many other earth- (or should we say) milk-shaking problems are here as the Ice Cream Girl decides to make a clean breast of it.
“I’ve passed Teenhood.”
“Heartbreak huomour guaranteed to appeal to anyone who's ever been a teenager at some point of time. Achingly funny.”
“Dear Teenage Textbook,
Now then you tell me! Why you early-early don't say? Where were you in 1962 when I really needed you?”
—Toh Paik Choo
