Home Front Girl: 03/07/14
Home Front Girl by Joan Wehlen Morrison is the diaries of the author from her childhood through early adulthood. She was a teenager through WWII and the diaries reflect this.They cover the usual things: homework, school events, and teenage angsty things. There are also her thoughts on the war, popular culture of the time, and various names in the news.
It's an interesting read for anyone who wants a glimpse of what home front life was like.

I thought this was a good book for giving a glimpse of what it was like to live during that period. It wasn't the best WWII-era book I've read, but it was interesting.

Exactly. It gives a different perspective on life in WWII to fill out one's understanding of the war. It's not a great stand alone but it's interesting when alongside other books on the era.
