Americanized '72: A Generation X Coming of Age and Identity Adoption Story (Paperback)
In this uplifting memoir, the author recounts how and why members of the Vance family left organized religion in 1997 and went on to expand their belief system to include Eastern Philosophy. This Generation-X Coming-of-Age young adult story documents unique all-American experiences and shares the author's loyalty to the adoptive family prompted by the empathy she feels when her adoptive father survives a 1984 traumatic brain injury, which led to providing his care until 2021. The story focuses on transitioning from being raised in a fundamentalist Christian family to accepting a philosophical point of view that values all of nature after being kicked out of the church.
