Detailed item info

Synopsis
'Purple Daze' is a young adult novel set in suburban Los Angeles in 1965. Six high school students share their experiences and feelings in interconnected free verse and traditional poems about war, feminism, riots, love, racism, rock 'n' roll, high school, and friendship.Although there have been verse novels published recently, none explore the changing and volatile 1960's in America - a time when young people drove a cultural and political revolution. With themes like the costs and casualties of war, the consequences of sex, and the complex relationships between teens, their peers, and their parents, this story is still as relevant today as it was 45 years ago.

A novel in verse exploring the lives of six high school students in the city of Los Angeles during the tumultuous year of 1965.

Reviews
Tim Wynne-Jones, author of The Uninvited " Purple Daze is an explosion: a moment in time smashed into a thousand glinty, sharp-edged pieces, precise and dazzling." Valerie Hobbs, author of Sheep , California Young Reader Medal "I stayed up half the night reading Purple Daze and didn''t want it to end. Ziggy, Mickey, Cheryl, and Phil have found a permanent home in my heart." Ron Koertge, award-winning author of Strays "Sherry Shahan took me right back to the 60''s with this deftly-written, politically charged novel-in-verse. Be warned -- " Purple Daze " will put a spell on you, too!" Rita Williams-Garcia, author of "One Crazy Summer," National Book Award Finalist, Newbery Honor, Scott O''Dell Historical Award, Coretta Scott King Author "Shahan''s PURPLE DAZE puts us on the front lines of funky times, from Los Angeles to Da-Nang. A far out, implosive, psychedelic trip that ends in indictment. This is spectacular." VOYA , April 2011 "Shahan captures the tension and desperation of ''60s young people who were caught up in the events, while also highlighting the chaos with song lyrics. PURPLE DAZE will enable young adults to identify on a personal level with The Things They Carried by Tim O''Brien (Houghton Mifflin, 1990), which is often included in curriculum lists." Taylor Lovett, Duxbury Free Library Teen Galley Reader "It''s a fast read and the story is really thought consuming. It also incorporates history. I could not stop reading until I was finished." Book End Babes.com 1/18/11 "Sometimes a book can surprise you. Sometimes you open a book and don''t know what to make of it. Sometimes you stay up until midnight reading a book and then stay up until three, reading it again. Sometimes all three are true, and (for me) that was the case with YA novel PURPLE DAZE by Sherry Shahan" Catherine Ryan Hyde, author of 14 novels, including Pay It Forward "A raw and stunning portrait of the 60''s. For those who lived them, Purple Daze will bring your past to life. For those who didn''t, this story will make you feel as though you did." Wendelin Van Draanen "Compelling authenticity and emotional force." Ron Koertge "Deftly written, politically charged... Purple Daze will put a spell on you." Zoe Jovanovich, Sno-Isle Mukilteo Library, YALSA Teen Reader The most compelling aspect of this book was the time period. Most historical fiction books I see for young adults are generally in the 1800s, or around that time; after a while when I hear "historical fiction" I immediately think of that time period. It was really refreshing to read this book. I also loved how the author jumped right into these teenagers'' lives and had little historical blurbs throughout the book, subtly connecting the characters to them. It made it seem all the more real, as if the characters were really there. Also, the introduction to 1966 and the 1965 timeline at the end of the book really gave a sense of completion... Even though this was a really quick read, the format fit the book, which is another reason why it was so interesting. The poetry, letters, and journals were a refreshing change. New York Journal of Books , March 2011 Purple Daze is a cutting-edge novel, strategically written to keep you wanting more as you delve deeper into the love and conflict of the rocky 1960s. Told from the viewpoints of six main characters--Ziggy, Mickey, Phil, Nancy, Cheryl, and Don-- Purple Daze gives the reader a dynamic experience of both the social and political ups and downs of a critical time in history. Not being your average historical fiction novel, Purple Daze is a combination of letters, journal entries, notes, and newspaper clippings jaggedly put together in free verse to express a timeline of war, relationships, political movements, and rock ''n'' roll. Although sometimes hard to follow along, this story provides an insight into the mindset of teens during the year 1965, specifically into their exciting, sometimes funny, and always dramatic lives.
