Miss American Pie: A Diary of Love, Secrets, and Growing Up in the 1970s : Set against the backdrop of the Deep South in the 1970s, Miss American Pie is the unforgettable account of Margaret Sartor's life from age twelve to eighteen. Crafted from diaries, notebooks, and letters, this deeply personal yet universally appealing story is astonishing for its candor. Young Margaret moves with ease between the seemingly trivial concerns of hairstyles and boys to the more profound questions of faith and identity. Her world touches on all of the decade's issues - desegregation, drugs, the sexual revolution, the rise of feminism, and the spread of charismatic evangelical Christianity. By turns funny and poignant, heartbreaking and profound, Miss American Pie is both a moving portrait of adolescence and a stunning glimpse into a particular period of American history. It reminds us of what it feels like to grow up, offering a true and honest narrative of a teenager grappling with the timeless questions of sex, friendship, God, love, loss, and the meaning of family.
