Here's the latest interview, in Carousel:
body swap tale with a twist. Two likeable sixteen-year-old girls are
facing the challenges of adolescence. You might think they have a lot in
common, but they don't. That's because Holly is living today and
Marilyn is in 1962. Each girl finds herself inhabiting the other's
identity and year. As the girls face up to mad families, disgusting
mealtimes and hideous fashions they learn as much about their radically
different timeslots as they do about themselves. It's black and white
television versus DVD digital. It's clunky phones againts mobiles. It's
tyrannical parents or bewildering freedom. And as for boys, well, the
more things change the more they stay the same. The outsider's viewpoint
on both worlds affords plenty of laughs laced with satire, reminding us
how much teenage life has changed. This is an engaging, well-written
book that will stay with you long after you've finished the last page.
