This memoir follows a teenage girl who has had a less than easy life growing up in her drab hometown of Texas. It shows her journey of sexual experiences, her journey to California, and her encounter with drugs.The story is set in the 70's and illustrates the life of an anxious and eager girl finding her way through life and dealing with that typical teenage angst. Her descriptions of sexual experiences at a young age are so vivid you cant help but look back at your own and relate to this character. Her hard times and bad choices is what gives this memoir depth and separates it from similar memoirs about teenage girls.
