Growing Up Carrera tells humorous stories about the author's childhood growing up in Chicago during the late 70s and 80s.
Snow forts, vitamins, tree cutting and piano lessons complicated our lives growing up in Chicago. Our lives were full of activities and family, most of which turned into hysterical situations, especially when remembered years later. Everything is true, well as true as my memories as an 8 year old are true. You'll meet a series of hamsters all named Jack, and play street football while dodging cars and chasing down the twins. How did not having a tv growing up turn the family it what it is today? How low can your grades get in the 6th grade and still let you pass? How many years can you take piano lessons and not remember how to play anything when you grow up? And what in the world is Mille Bourne anyway?
