Kate Figes

The Terrible Teens
  • The Terrible Teens

  • Living with teenagers can be more stressful and emotional than anything parents have previously experienced. While there are dozens of books on development in young children, books on adolescent development and how to cope are almost non-existent. Kate Figes redresses the balance. Based on the advice of experts and interviews with parents and their children, this informed and practical analysis of the difficulties young people face growing up today will be essential reading for any parent.

Kate Figes was born in 1957. Her previous books are BECAUSE OF HER SEX: THE MYTH OF EQUALITY IN BRITAIN (1994); THE COSMOPOLITAN BOOK OF SHORT STORIES (1995); THE PENGUIN BOOK OF INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S STORIES (1996) and LIFE AFTER BIRTH (1998). She lives in London N16.
