About the Book

Liz Maxwell Forbes takes the reader on a bittersweet journey through childhood in the privileged environ of Oak Bay under the faulty guidance of eccentric parents. She writes with raw honesty about her troubling behaviour as she struggles to find her way through the stifling aspirations of a society that existed during the 1940s and 1950s.

At times a brave uncompromising view of a difficult childhood, Growing Up Weird is also a story of hope and resilience, humour and love. Part memoir, part social history, it is a compelling work of nonfiction with a strong narrative that reads like a novel.
