A tell all, taken directly from my 1964 High School
diary reveals the secret life of a 16-year-old girl coming of
age between Kennedy’s Assassination and
the Vietnam War. In the midst of frustration and struggle
to become an adult during the 1960’s, Sharrie and her
friends, seek to find meaning in their lives – while growing
up in the fast lane of LA.

Johnson to wage war against North Vietnam without a formal Declaration of War.
