on June 03, 2012 :
Cherie tells the fascinating story of her confrontation with a flawed and inefficient British Juvenile System of the early ‘60s which leads to her escape the Approved School System and taking the road to search and discover her inner self and the alternative life of beatnik era in Europe.
Written with delightful honesty, she describes her life on the road with a series of colourful and talented characters and how she manages to come through a series of situations unscathed on this fascinating journey to both find herself and comprehend why a young girl has been forced to leave a loving father and take this solitary journey by an unjust system – questions that have no feasible answers.
Descriptions of her time in Paris to France’s vineyards through the Germany, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Sweden and Italy of the mid-60s are reminiscent of a wonderful era where free spirits abound and this young girl discovers life with her own, ethical values.
Although the circumstances that drew her to take this journey were both unfortunate and undoubtedly unjust, they resulted in her living experiences far more beneficial to her soul and development than those she would have lived had she remained incarcerated and served as the foundation for a future full and successful life.
A must read for all baby-boomers and those who are curious about life at the beginning of the hippy period and the much missed free spirited life of the youth of the ‘60s.
