I admire the author for traveling on her own which takes true bravery. I am apprehensive about traveling by myself and it is not as restrictive for women as it was back then. The author's writing style is conversational and witty. I could picture the disappoint the author felt with her relationship with Brandon, the frustration with her roommate Gladys and the blooming relationship with her younger sister. A wonderful story of internal growth and the discovery of happiness in love
I started reading Just Keep Shooting as the vulture. I felt Judy was too harsh with her mom, although I did not read the sequel A Penny A Kiss to fully understand the relationship that existed between the mother and daughter. There was a lot of insecurity behind the pride and haughtiness she betrayed.
But as I read I’ve come to love the young woman who saw herself as insignificant. She was, in fact, very brave and kind. She was independent enough to travel the world by herself, and have great respect for people and their cultures. During that time women don’t have the advantages they do now, but Judy was very resourceful in accomplishing what she wanted when she knew what it was she wanted.
I would recommend for anyone who's a fan of memoirs and those looking for a good read set back in the exciting and tumultuous times of the 1950's/.1960's.
