With their Youthful Innocence Lost, Lena and Tony shape their future, never forgetting the lessons they learned from the pleasures and hardships they endured. With the 1960s and the outset of the 1970s just a glance away, like an image in the rear-view mirror, the rapidly changing times alter their destiny in unintended ways as more forks in the road require their attention. At times it was tough reflecting back on what could have been the easy path to take, but as Rebellious Souls learn when searching for adventure, looking forward is the only direction life allows you to go to find your destiny.

I have to say that this is one of the most honest reads I have ever read. It goes right to the core of where America went wrong. It is deep it is honest and it is some of the most inspiring reads I have ever read.. I would recommend this to true Americans who grew up in the 60's who's life was supposed to be a certain way. Your life is YOUR life. You live it the way you want. I highly recommend this book to the ones who want the truth.
