    DescriptionThe Growing Pains of Adrian Mole is the second book in Sue Townsend's brilliantly funny Adrian Mole series. 'If I turn out to be mentally deranged in adult life, it will be all my mother's fault.' Adrian Mole continues to struggle valiantly against the slings and arrows of growing up and his own family's attempts to scar him for life in this second volume of his secret diary. Bestselling author Sue Townsend has been Britain's favourite comic writer for over three decades. "I not only wept, I howled and hooted and had to get up and walk around the room and wipe my eyes so that I could go on reading". (Tom Sharpe). "A satire of our times. Very funny indeed". (Sunday Times). "We laugh both at Mole and with him. A wonderful comic read, that, like all the best comedy, says something rather meaningful". (Heat). Sue Townsend is Britain's favourite comic author. Her hugely successful novels include eight Adrian Mole books, The Public Confessions of a Middle-Aged Woman (Aged 55 ), Number Ten, Ghost Children, The Queen and I, Queen Camilla and The Woman Who Went to Bed For a Year, all of which are highly acclaimed bestsellers. She has also written numerous well-received plays. She lives in Leicester, where she was born and grew up.
