Puberty Blues is Australia’s iconic coming of age story following the lives of two teenage girls, Debbie and Sue, in the 1970’s surfing scene. Their lives revolve around male surfers, panel vans, straight-leg Levi’s, skipping school, getting wasted and fitting in. When Debbie and Sue finally are accepted into the Greenhills Surfer gang their lives are turned upside down as they are forced to grow up much sooner than they should. Puberty Blues is a raw, disturbing and honest portrayal of adolescence in the 1970’s as it covers the themes of growing up, sexism, abuse and fitting in.
