Love the 80s? Mall Hair Maladies is a laugh out loud, coming-of-age comedy with a heartwarming conclusion you won’t see coming! Hold on for the ride as these bodacious, bubblegum-pop princesses skate you back through the days of bad perms, bathroom bullies, bogus curfews, boy crushes, and burping contests!
The story Pittsburgh, 1985 . . .
It’s not easy being the new girl, but it doesn’t take long for Randi Gattano to snag a new best friend as totally rad as she is. Randi and Tanya have everything in common-big hair, big dreams, big imaginations, and an even bigger obsession with scoring tickets to see their favorite pop queen live. How far will they go in their determination to let nothing stand in the way of the greatest night of their 13-year-old lives? And what will they ultimately learn about friendship, family, and fate?
“Looking for that perfect “tween” book. This is it. And you might just want to share it with your mom.”
“The author brings it all back…the music, smoke-filled bathrooms, the frustrating inconvenience of having to look things up in the dictionary and wait out never-ending busy signals…original, well written…”
“A marvelous blend of 80’s nostalgia, determination, self discovery, friendship, and love.”
“…It reminds us that every generation has to struggle with coming of age and find ways to fit in while being true to one’s self.” JGusky
“I am in love with this book!”
My Review: I truly felt like I was reliving the 80s in this book. The POV comes from a 13 year old child, and much of what the kids got up to, wasn’t part of my 80s as I was having my own children. I found this story hilarious. Five stars.
