Armed with a copy of The Fine Art of Flirting and a precocious attitude, fifteen year old Pei Yi moves from her sheltered life in small-town Malaysia to accept an ASEAN scholarship at a secondary school in competitive—some might say ’kiasu’—Singapore. 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’ unrivaled passion for setting up committees! 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, and a fascinating insight into Asian teenage life.
