Book 56 of 52 -- Margaret Sartor's Miss American Pie
Margaret Sartoe's book is probably best appreciated by women, but I was immediately drawn in to the unique style of writing and raw emotion.
The book is actually a collection of diary entries by Ms. Sartor during the 1970s when race relations were tenuous in her Louisiana town.
The book is super neat and truly imaginative in a variety of ways.
She has editted her own journal and I am amazed at how irrelevant each entry appears, but in the grand scheme of her life story, they are incredibly poignant and touching.
We see a young girl's reactions to her changing body and Elvis' death and beconing an adult with her own opinions and dreams.
Different and I loved it.
