Teen power

I am sitting up in bed nursing a hangover from last night’s work drinks and listening to Lorde’s extraordinary new album (Melodrama). You can read a review here or just jump over to Spotify. It makes me even more excited that I’m going to the Lorde concert in the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House later this year.

It amazes me that she’s only 20 now and was 16 when her first album (Pure Heroine) was released. She’s such a talented songwriter and singer. There’s an  interview with her in the paper today.

But of course teenagers are capable of amazing things. That’s something adults sometimes forget, but it’s every young-adult writer needs to remember. Never underestimate.
