The book
deals with the problems of a 13 year old boy.

Adrian starts his
diary on
January 1st, when he is 13 years old. He makes some resolutions for the New
Year and he is worried about a spot on his chin. Adrian?s parents quarrel
between themselves about the flowers his mother has received from their
neighbour. After a while he decides to become an intellectual, so he writes to
the BBC to ask what to do about this. He also writes his first poem and joins
the library.

At school
Adrian meets Pandora. He joins a group called ?The Good Samaritans?. They do
social work for old people. Adrian looks after Bert Baxter. Adrian?s first
visits to Bert Baxter are disappointments, because he is a dirty old man and
his house is in a disgusting state. Moreover, he complains about Adrian to the
headmaster and Adrian is unjustly reprimanded. When, on top of this, he
discovers that his best friend Nigel is going out with Pandora.

In March
his father tell him that he and his mother are splitting up. At the end of the
month his mother leaves for Sheffield with the neighbour after his father and
the neighbour have had a fight. On June 1st Adrian?s father is made redundant
and starts smoking and drinking heavily. His father is very depressed and
loses his job. At school Adrian gets into trouble for wearing red socks, which
he has put on because he feels rebellious. Pandora and he organize a
Red-Sock-Revolution where everyone wears red socks, but the headmaster sends
them all home. This event brings Adrian and Pandora together and Nigel

In October
Bert Baxter is taken to an old age pensioner?s home because of leg trouble. He
hates it there and only one month later, after Adrian has been in hospital to
have his tonsils out, he hears Bert has befriended a woman called Queenie. In
the meantime Adrian?s father is still without a job and he does nothing all
day. Adrian?s relationship with Pandora isn?t very harmonious anymore. When
Pandora finds out that another girl is in love with Adrian she fights her.
Adrian has a three-day friendship with a girl called Barbara.. On April 2nd,
Adrian?s birthday, Pandora ignores him. But the next day they make it up. This
day happens to be the day that the Falklands War begins.


The book
goes on with repeating all the problems like spots, school; the division and
so on. But in the end of his diary entries his mother comes back to her
family, his father finds a new job, he is in love with Pandora and even his
new friend Bert Baxter marries. Now life is worth living for Adrian.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The Themes:

One of the big
themes of the book is Pandora, because
falls in love with her and she dates Nigel at first, his best friend who
actually knows that Adrian loves her. She is new at
school and she sits next to him in their Geography lessons. But when she
notices that Adrian also has his rebellious side as cause of his red
sock-wearing, she is interested in him. So they both are in love. If I should
describe Pandora, I wouldn?t say that she is like you would expect a 14
year-old girl to be, because she often wants to oppose, to resist and she is
rebellious. Maybe it shows that she only wants to be different from the other
pupils in school, she is also a very good pupil, she has very good marks and
that she wants to escape from the ordinary things. She is not really afraid of
Also a big theme is the separation of Adrian?s parents. Her mother leaves her
family behind for Mr. Lucas who is the neighbour. She is flirting with him in
front of her son and husband. It starts with visiting Pauline, Adrian?s
mother, when she was ill but then he visits her nearly very day. Mrs. Lucas,
the wife of Mr. Lucas, seems to know that anything is going on with Pauline
and her husband and every time he visits Pauline, she does anything in the
garden, maybe to see something happening between Pauline and Mr. Lucas. For
having the reason to leave Mr. Lucas behind. Pauline and George have many
fights because of Mr. Lucas ans one day Pauline leave them behind and moves to ...
