*even war can’t stop teen troubles*
Joan Wehlen grew up in the Chicago area in the years leading up to and during World War II. She was encouraged to write by more than one teacher -and she loved doing it- so it shouldn’t be a surprise that she kept a diary. In these chronologically organized entries, Joan mostly talks about school and boys, but she also mentions world events. Sprinkled with her own drawings and personal photographs, this book provides a first person account of a time gone by.
