Growing Up in the Fifties is Hard Too!
Her parents get divorced when she is little but most of her adventures start when she gets a little is a young teen. For instance, this guy dies, she gets followed by someone, she does a play and the audience tries to attack her, strange. The older she gets the more fun, weird and hilarious adventures and realistic problems she gets into.
How many books have you read, that are about someone's life, and isn't based around one little (or big) problem? No one's life has one problem. It describes how she feels, real emotions that teens feel and what happens in a teenager's life and the diffucult problems they get to. She has very good advantages, like they throw her a big "This is your life party",but she also has bad disadvanages like she loses friends or family members. Even though the book takes place in the fifties similar things happen in the nineties. I think this book is good for most ages from 11 or 12 years. Once I got into it I felt I knew her, or everything that happened to her, I experienced. The author made it very clear what age she was by her writing and what she wrote about. It got more mature as she gets older.
