Description
This is the diary of a smart, astute, and funny teenager, making a record of what an everyday American girl thought and felt during the Depression and the lead-up to World War II. This is an important primary source on the late 1930s and early 1940s.--From the publisher.
Diary entries by a Chicago teen who came of age during the Great Depression and the years leading up to World War II describe her witness to period events, from FDR's radio addresses and speeches by Hitler to the Lindbergh kidnapping and Red Cross meetings.
