Summary It's 1971 in Connecticut, and sixteen-year-old Sharon's parents think that, because she's a girl, she should become a clerical office worker after high school and live at home until she marries and has a family. But Sharon wants to join the hippies and be part of the changing society, so she leaves home and heads to California. Upon arriving in California, Sharon is thrown into an adult world for which she is unprepared, and she embarks on a precarious journey amid the 1970s counterculture. On her various adventures across the country and while living on a commune, with friends and lovers filtering in and out of her life, she realizes she must learn quickly in order to survive--as well as figure out a way to reconcile her developing spirituality with her Catholic upbringing. In this colorful memoir, Sharon reflects upon the changes that reshaped her during the 1970s women's movement, and how they have transformed society's expectations for girls and women today--and, through it all, shares moments of triumph, joy, love, and awakening.
