The phrase "voice of a generation" gets bandied around a lot but Rosalind Jana is certainly someone who can lay claim to that epithet. Her voice is smart, warm, feminist and funny and and Notes of Teenage is a wonderful blend of anecdote, advice and insight; Rosalind is like the online older sister you wish you had when you were a teenager and it's the sort of book I would have loved to give to the teenagers I used to work with. (Anna James)
Ros speaks like a confident and worldly best friend, who doesn't just tell you what to do, but shares how she did it, too. That's so very generous. Reading her words is a comfort, and a joy. She's smart and educated, kind and bold - I'm so impressed by her. (Laura Jane Williams)
