I didn't grow up in the 60's, so reading this was a very interesting look at high school, peer pressure, and everyday life for a kid in the 60's. I was very impressed.

A Blast from the Past
Reading this book, if you are not transported back to your high school days, then you didn't go. Each entry has the almost magical quality of allowing you to relive those days - and feel the feelings just as deeply as you did when you first experienced them.
The pain of losing your first high school love, hanging out with friends, cruising for hours on end......it's all there, and brings back your own experiences as clear as crystal.
I couldn't recommend this book more highly.....take a break from the madness that can be adult life, and go back in time to where we had all summer off, spring breaks, Christmas vacations, our first jobs, were introduced to a whole new form of music, and savor the memories this book will bring back to you.
Publishers Weekly, 1987-02-27 This diary by the author of Good Morning, Merry Sunshine may top that bestseller, for Greene's re-creation of what he considers America's last innocent year, 1964, possesses nostalgia's magic. He records his life as a high school student in Bexley, a suburb of Columbus, Ohio. With his close male friends, he thrilled to the music and style of the Beatles and balked at orders to ``get a haircut!''; he mourned from January through December over a girl he continued to love even after she dumped him; sometimes he and his pals drank too much and played tricks ``I'm not proud of.'' He recalls an era when it was hard to persuade a girl to ``go all the way'' and other youthful experiences that make up a poignant, funny, charming memoir.
