- THE DIARY OF AMOS LEE : GIRLS, GUTS AND GLORY!
DetailsI write my diary in the toilet to get away from my troubles, like having to compete with Michael, the bully whos in the swim team with me, and falling out with my best friend, Alvin, over a girl! This year has been full of ups and downs. The good thing is that Ive been growing UP rather than down, having to deal with one thing after another. First, Ive had to work out till my arms and legs nearly fell off while Coach insisted that such discipline was necessary to make a good sportsman.The arrival of a new girl in class, my new baby brother, a brand new magazine by Anthony and me, and a new pet cat meant that there was plenty of stuff happening and I have had to furiously scribble away to keep pace with all the new adventures and excitement in my life, including spider babies and lizards eggs!And then there are parts that are even more fascinating, for I know secrets, like how to break my sisters terrible curse, how to win a race, and how babies are made....ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Adeline Foo is a Singaporean short story writer and children's book writer.
