"The 'normal' teenager loves fake tanning, blonde highlights, manicures and getting dressed up for parties themed around her favourite reality TV show. She is the daughter of a black cab driver and dreams of one day being a performer in the West End – like Essex celebrity Denise Van Outen." —But there is something surprising about her!

"The mental ability of teenagers can improve or decline on a far greater scale than previously thought, according to new research. Until now the assumption has been that intellectual capacity, as measured by IQ, stays quite static during life. But tests conducted on teenagers at an average age of 14 and then repeated when their average age was nearly 18 found improvements – and deterioration." Big deal, my IQ fluctuates pretty much every day. Although that is probably related to alcohol.
