Presented in journal format, "Dear America" invites readers into the personal worlds of girls from different times in American history. Each moving narrative is extensively researched and inspired by real letters and journals of the time. Not only will readers experience firsthand what it was like to grow up in another time and place, but they will discover how important their own stories are to the making of history.
