A young girl aspiring to be a writer recounts her experiences growing up in England during the Second World War. An English schoolgirl has problems, many of them funny, in her attempts to grow up socially. A reissue. Literature of Delight. Headstrong, independent Jessica, at 13, already knows she will be a writer. This early work from a fine British novelist is one of her wittiest. A treasure for sophisticated readers, who won't be shy about seeking out Gardam's adult novels as well, such as Robinson Crusoe's Daughter.

After being unable to understand this Audible version, I purchased a hard copy of this book and loved it. Yes, I would buy another book if the Audible version was easier to understand.
I use Audible so that someone can read a book to me while I'm driving or otherwise unable to read a hard copy book. I do NOT want to listen to someone's version of a drama with extreme accents. Please, just a good reader, able to use appropriate voice inflection but no screeching adaption of a book!
