Format: Kindle Edition
"Caller Number Nine", by Debbie Duncan is a delightful tale about a young woman coming of age in 1967 Los Angeles. When the story begins 13 year-old Laura Hill, of Woodland Hills, wins the Jet Set radio contest on her favorite radio station. The prize is a weekend in Hawaii with her favorite D.J. Her 15 minutes of fame helps her make friends at her new school where she is still adjusting to the change. As the trip comes and goes various obstacles and problems crop up and the issues of the time: women's rights and Vietnam, all play into Laura's growth.

Duncan did a bang up job recreating 1967 anywhere. I loved all the little tidbits she included, such as: no nutrition labels on food, smoking allowed everywhere, no ATM's, princess phones, and so much more. The weaving in of the political issues of the era gave it more depth as well. Laura was a great character and I could really relate to some of her quirks (like not wanting to call people on the phone). Duncan created a very believable 13 year-old girl.

This is a great YA read that I think adults can enjoy too.

I enjoyed this book, the author did much research for 1967. A time of the Vietnam War, the draft and Martin Luther King Junior. A time before cell phones and 9/11. A interesting story of an adventure of a thirteen year old girl in very changing times.

From the electric feeling of dialing the phone trying to win a contest, to the warm, smooth feeling of baking in the sun trying for the Perfect Tan, Ms. Duncan just nailed MY experience of being a young teen in the late sixties. I remember the cool DJ's and the Dance Show we all lived to watch. And I remember feeling like I didn't belong....and then suddenly, surprisingly, I DID belong to the "In Crowd". The teen emotions in this book are only part of the story though. Ms. Duncan weaves in the emerging social awareness that excited us and invited us to take part in making the world a better place. This book would be a fun way for young readers to learn about that important time in our history. And the core emotions expressed are universal, so today's young readers will see themselves in Laura and her friends. I love that she included her 'playlist' -- I do hope her young readers will take the time to listen to those great tunes as well.
