Growing up is a miraculous time. The journey from the freedom of childhood to the workaday life of modern adults is filled with both poignancy and wonder. Along with fond memories of pedaling bikes through honeysuckle-scented streets with a pack of neighborhood friends, playing “kick the can” and stickball on warm summer evenings alight with fireflies, and the inevitable loss of people and places dear to the heart, everyone experiences a seminal moment when he or she knows they’ve left childhood behind.
In this collection of short memoirs, seventeen authors recall the seminal moment when their world shifted and nothing would ever be the same.
First in a series of anthologies guaranteed to leave readers reliving memories of their own.
