So you're having a teenager? We're sorry to hear it. Worried about drugs? We recommend valium, wine and HRT. You'll be needing a survival guide for the years ahead so you know what you're in for. Sarah Macdonald and Cathy Wilcox's A-Z of adolescence is a straight-talking, not entirely sarcastic and eye-poppingly informative guide to what are for many parents the most challenging years in the role. Because having a toddler is a doddle.

The author

Sarah Macdonald is an ABC journalist and radio presenter, and author of the international bestseller Holy Cow. Many women in their 40s and 50s came of age listening to her host the Morning Show on Triple J. Sarah currently presents Night Life on the weekends and co-hosts the storytelling event and comedy podcast The Full Catastrophe with Rebecca Huntley.

Cathy Wilcox is a cartoonist for the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, for which she has drawn since 1989, as well as illustrator of numerous children's books. She has collected three Walkley Awards and some Children's Book Council commendations for her work along the way. She is the mother of two children who have almost made it through the teenage years, and one eternally childlike dog.
