I'm going back to reread some of the books that I have had in storage for 10 years. I imagine that when I was younger I didn't understand many of the adult themes in this one.

Hitchhike is set in the 70s and while the surface of the book is simply about the dangers of hitchhiking and a girl's relationship with her daughter, there is also the powerful anti establishment ideals of her generation. It was interesting to see everything put so plainly, something I love about YA novels.
