“Top of the pops for me used to be The Diary of Anne Frank. When I was a teenager, I used to really want to be Anne Frank. Not the ending obviously, just the idea of living very simply in an attic, reading boks, keeping my diary, falling in love with the pale, sensitive Jewish boy in the attic next door. That sounds a little bit perverse, doesn’t it?” ~Alice, from the book
Brings back a lot of memories when I was growing up in the 80s….trying to fit in, wanting to be in the “in crowd”, problems with acne, teenage love, and more.
