Inspired by the life and works of poet Sylvia Plath, including Plath's published journals, Maya Morrow presents her own coming-of-age journey in this collection of raw and uncensored diaries spanning a decade and a half. The story begins Christmas 1984 and ends in 1999, when the author, twenty-six, rediscovers the handwritten diaries for the first time.

"These diaries are compelling enough on their own," Morrow writes. "However, what makes this coming-of-age story different from many others is that it gives the reader a glimpse of not just an average, American middle class girl's life - it highlights the fact that my life was that, and I'm Afro American. When The Cosby Show came on, I saw my family on television, and didn't understand why the media said the show was an unrealistic depiction of Afro American life. It was realistic; it was my life!"

Set against a backdrop of cultural touchstones any Gen-Xer would recognize, Silicon Valley Girl: My Adolescent Life and Times, and an Ode to Generation X offers a deeply personal look at the emotional life of a teenager of color trying to make sense of race, class, and sexuality at the dawn of Post-Cold War America.
