Poor Adrian has a lot on his plate! His parents are perpetually on the verge of divorce, he volunteers to help the aged and gets stuck with a revolting old man who treats him like a skivvy, he thinks he's an intellectual but still can't manage to do very well at school, the girl he liked starts going out with his best friend and the only person who seems on his side is his mad old grandma.Written by

Very funny a timely book for those of us in the teen years
This was actually on the telly as a TV Series in 1985 but was repeated in 1987. Certainly helped me along the way as i was the same age and could relate. I think we were all in love with Pandora, Attractive and forthright with a strong spirit. Sue Townsend writes very well and keeps you buried in the book, page after page. The Screen adaption was done very well and the people chosen to play the characters were, in my opinion, perfect. Julie Walters does an outstanding job as Adrians mum and Gian Sammarco was perfect for the role of Adrian. Such was the impact that even now at 34&3/4(funny) i still read them and they are still very funny. A Must read/watch for anyone suffered through being called a nerd!!!!! and I am sure will be appreciated even by the last two generation of kids after my generation.
