Ana Pessoa · Joana Estrela

"Employing a continuous and lively autobiographical tone, Gloomy Teresa tells us about her world, the feelings burning up inside of her and her thoughts on the people around her. Drifting from Autumn to Summer, from the age of 17 to 18, from the last days at high school to her entry into university, Teresa sketches her emotions and dilemmas, her insecurities and angst; those perplexities that are part and parcel of growing up.

This is a strong and believable story that immediately takes the reader in. Readers will relate not only to Teresa’s life at home and in school, but also to the story’s very modern language and style, which set this tale apart from others."
