Ready to revisit the early ’90s—that golden era of big bangs, Bubble Tape, and doing the Bartman? Meet your tour guide: Dawn Luebbe, an 11-year-old Nebraskan obsessed with 90210 and writing Kurt Cobain–inspired poetry. In My 1992 Diary, Dawn shares with readers her zany, silly, and deadpan adolescent observations. She touches on the cornerstones of growing up—from crushes to siblings to Ouija boards—all peppered with memorable call-outs from the height of ’90s culture.
The book is filled with 75 diary entries, each hilariously narrated on its corresponding page. It’s organized into chapters such as Passion on the Prairie, Attempts to Be Cool, Preteen Conflict: The Art of Overreaction, and more. With Dawn’s self-deprecating, every-girl humor, My 1992 Diary is a charming and joyful read for the 11-year-old in all of us.
