Del Jordan's said goodbye to childhood - to catching frogs, grazing knees, singing songs to save England from Hitler - and now she's impatient for more. More than she can find in the encyclopedias sold by her mother, or in the half-understood innuendos and hair-shampooing advice dispensed by best friend Naomi, or in the whispers of boys during backseat fumbles. Just like the girls in the movies, she wants to get started on real life. In her only novel, Alice Munro turns her eye to the frustrations, embarrassments, glee and bewilderment of adolescence, and to the brushes with sex, death, violence and birth that shape the lives of girls and women.
