    My sister has his first two books and my daughter has one – or in fact, two copies of his “Being a Teenager”. It was reprinted, given a new cover and retitled, “Being a teen” and I did not know and I bought a copy for my daughter at KLIA en route to Penang. When I gave it to her, she said she already had it… Tsk! Tsk! Too bad you’re not a teenager or I could post it to you (your birthday present…Muahahahaha!!!!!).
