* The BBC TV tie-in of the trials of the young terror called Treasure as she clashes with her mother on the rocky road to independence during her teenage years
Treasure is thirteen years old. She is bright and well-balanced: her best friend (this week) is Rosie, her Doc Martens are in Crouch End and her school shoes are nowhere on earth. But Treasure has a problem - her mother. 'I hate you,' she hisses. 'You're so embarrassing...you spoil everything.' Her 'uncool' mother lets her party until midnight; acts as her chauffeur and her fund raiser; takes her shopping for worm-like tops and dresses - but she can't even begin to know what it is to be a teenager.
Treasure first appeared in the Guardian and has featured on Radio 4. She is now the star of a BBC TV series.
