The teenage years! A time when you didn't have all these responsibilities, when your future shone brightly before you, the world full of opportunity! Who are we trying to kid? Being a teen is hard. Even when you're a star on your school's soccer team, are a good student, and have a boyfriend, there are plenty of ways that being a teen - to speak bluntly - sucks.

That's the world - of angst and emotion, fractured families and fractious frenemies - that Pete Kalu conjures up in Being Me. The story of Adele, a girl with a rotten family, an aching heart, and a questionable best friend, it's a witty, lively novel of growing up female, black, and middle class in contemporary London. As Adele navigates an everyday gauntlet of soccer matches, fights with her best friend, texts and furtive kisses with her boyfriend (her first!), and the travails of her screwed up family, Kalu takes us back to those tough teen years, of learning to hold things together in the midst of chaos - and sorting things out by figuring out just who you are, and who you want to be.
Pete Kalu is a novelist, playwright, and poet.
