Described as a 'witty, gritty owner's manual', So… You're Having a Teenager is an adolescence bible of sorts, taking the alphabet and running down the list of what to expect in these troublesome, testing and terrific years. Friends, next-door neighbours and fellow mums of teens Sarah McDonald and Cathy Wilcox have lived through it all – the triumphs, the tears and all the testosterone and tricky conversations in between. It may be straight-talking and not always sarcastic, but it's certainly informative of what's to come, or what you're already experiencing. If only this came together with that mystery baby manual all those years ago.
