We are some years on now from Puberty Blues. Debbie and friends know for sure that girlfriends are the only people you can rely on to be supportive and uplifting when you make the right decisions, and the wrong ones, over and over again. And even though they know that there are only two things wrong with men - everything they say and everything they do - why oh why do they keep falling for the wrong guys, and saying yes when they mean no?
Hooray for the regular girls' night out, the one evening you can't stand your girlfriends up if a better offer comes along.
Kathy Lette has returned to her second novel Girls Night Out, written when she was 20, and given it a complete rewrite.
