Conhecimento Comum



So completely of it's time, and provides good documentation of how things were back then. Even reading it in the early 90s it was evident how things have changed. Adrian comes across as being physically and emotionally underdeveloped in a family that probably didn't want him.

Quick, funny, poignant, but the strangest most rushed to an ending I've ever experienced.

Meh. It felt like being 13-going-on-14 again: in turn earnest, pretentious, self-centered, kind, dull, weird, repeat. So kudos for getting that right, but I wasn't really feeling it.

Adrian tiene trece años y, cada día, escribe en su diario, a través de cuyas páginas el lector se adentra poco a poco en su mundo y su realidad: su creciente amor por Pandora, las amenazas de Barry, su amistad con Nigel, el descubrimiento de Bert, su sueño de ser escritor y sus miedos y frustraciones con respecto a sus padres. Una historia sobre el crecimiento con grandes dosis de humor, sorpresa y sentimientos.
