Caroline thought her big high school challenges were maintaining grades and a social life. Did she look fat in that outfit? Should she break up with her boyfriend? Did she belong in honors English? Questions hard enough and simple enough. That was before senior year, before moving to a new high school. Senior year of 1965-1966 meant starting over during a moment in history that would have been turbulent enough during quiet times. But this year saw a military draft, deferments, civil rights legislation, and the effects of race riots. Even in small town Wisconsin, those developments were felt. Caroline found herself wedged into one of America's seismic shifts.

A diary is Caroline's chronicle of this year of wonders - her introduction to racial prejudice as she recognizes it in herself, the tragedy of suicide as she stumbles upon its victims, the confusion of sexual orientation as she discovers true friendship, and the knowledge of herself as she begins to understand the pain of loss.

My Most Amazing Adventure: 1965-1966 - A Diary is an engaging and authentic record of a teenager's reboot of her own life. It's a reminder of the resilience of youth and the beauty of an open mind.
