Ginny lives in Pine Grove, California, just north of Mendocino. She is not pleased with her eighth-grade class assignment, which is to write an autobiography. To make the task more interesting, she decides to create an illustrated autobiography. Between her birth in 1900 and her 13th birthday, much has happened at Pine Grove, including the building of the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse just down the hill. This book featuring a teenage main character is perfect for anyone interested in the history of the Mendocino coast in the early 20th century. 2016.
