    1. Really great read. Based on the Authors own experience. Written in a great voice the humour shines through this difficult subject. It gives you an understanding of how someone can get trapped into a bad relationship and find it hard to leave. It really evokes the period with lots of musical references. Its a great cautionary tale for any women young or old. I read it in one sitting and will read it again.


    2. Memoirs of a Suburban Girl is not a memoir, it’s a novel, but the author has based this remarkable story on her own life experience and it is compellingly authentic. Wakefield Press released it in November to coincide with White Ribbon Day, a men’s campaign against domestic violence, and I think it should be widely read. I’d like to see governments issue a free copy to every young girl the way they provide free Gardisil…I picked it up late last night ‘just to have a little look at it [...]


    3. Memoirs of a Suburban girl takes place in the North of Adelaide, in fact, where i live. Reading this book took me back to my teenage years and I knew the places that are described in. I was never in the same situation as this girl but found I could relate to her in some ways.This book is an easy quick read which keeps you interested until the end. Highly recommended for teenage girls.



    4. Deb, what an amazing book (9/10) ; brilliantly told and with such wonderfully wry humour amid all the drama and hurt. Thank you so much for sharing something so painful and real.
