Abstract:

Armed with a copy of The Fine Art of Flirting, a stash of 'dirty books' and a precocious attitude, fifteen year old Pei Yi leaves her sheltered life in small-town Malaysia to accept an ASEAN scholarship at a secondary school in competitive--some might say kiasu--Singapore. Not since Adrian Mole have the growing pains of a geeky teenager been so painfully exposed to the rest of us! In My Kiasu Teenage Life in Singapore, author Ee Lin See weaves a charming tale of teenage angst and exposes the lighter side of Singapore into the bargain. A great read for adults and teens alike.
