Armed with a copy of "The Fine Art of Flirting", a stash of dirty books and a precocious attitude, fifteen year old Pei Yi leaves her sheltered life in small-town Malaysia to accept an ASEAN scholarship at a secondary school in competitive, some might say "kiasu", Singapore. Not since Adrian Mole have the growing pains of a geeky teenager been so painfully exposed to the rest of us! In "My Kiasu Teenage Life in Singapore", author Ee Lin See weaves a charming tale of teenage angst and exposes the lighter side of Singapore into the bargain. A great read for adults and teens alike.

Through a series of letters written over a two-year period back to her best friend in Malaysia, Pei Yi offers readers an insight not only into the hilarious adventures of a teenage girl studying away from home and the agonies of BGR (boy-girl relationships) but also an insight into the Singapore psyche, the nurturing of kiasuism and Singaporeans’ unrivalled passion for setting up committees!About the Author:
After growing up in Malaysia and Singapore, author Ee Lin See graduated from the University of Chicago and currently lives in New York, where she works on Wall Street by day and runs a teen mentoring program, Chumz, in her spare time. Ee Lin claims to have read over four hundred books by Enid Blyton.
