This autobiographical memoir recounts important incidents and circumstances in the author's life from the ages of nine through eighteen. It is, essentially, what is generally known as a "coming of age" story, a narrative in which a young person discovers important, necessary truths about the nature of being an adult - indeed, of simply being a human being. This is the narrative's primary theme, with secondary themes exploring the attraction and responsibilities of individual independence and the metaphorical nature of travel.
