Uncool series by Jane De Suza

Category: Fiction
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers India

High School Lows is the first book of the bitingly funny Uncool series. This is a look at the Indian teen and her angst – dipping self-esteem, rollicking hormones,  imperfect parents, peer pressure – through the film that 13-year-old DD is trying to make. Besides the usual highs and lows of high school, there’s this sinister stranger who lurks around. Though her heart keeps breaking (with a single mom and not a single boyfriend) this youngster is made of grittier stuff.

A rib-tickling tackling of teen issues – in the hope that getting them to laugh about it, will get them to think about it and to realise they’re not alone.
