Jodi Mitchell’s book proposal offers a personal explanation of the importance of her journals in thinking about the female experience on the streets and as a part of the transient lifestyle many young people found for themselves in the 70s. Jodi expresses that her writing simultaneously appeals to those of the 70s and to today’s teens, suggesting a kind of universal relatability to her particular journey of self-actualization and her process of finding home. This proposal shapes the trajectory of Jodi’s story and offers a unique glimpse at her personal perspective as she reminisces and makes sense of her time on the street some thirty years later.
